Steve Podborski and RBC Collingwood World Cup
The RBC Dominion Securities branch in Collingwood recently had a visit from 1982 overall World Cup Downhill champion and 1980 Olympic Bronze medalist Steve Podborski. His visit was a follow up to a special event which occurred late last fall. RBC Investment Advisor Nick Hamilton hosted a movie screening at the Historic Gayety theatre of “The Best Downhill Racer” a movie which chronicles the overall championship Podborski achieved in 1982. The movie event was attended by over 300 ski racing enthusiasts with total proceeds of $6000 going to Parachute Canada; a national charity with a focus on injury prevention and saving lives. One of the most special donations was an original painting by acclaimed sports photographer Allan de la Plante, which is now proudly displayed in the Dominion Securities office lobby above the LCBO in Collingwood.
