Blue Water Day 2016
On Blue Water Day, June 2, 2016 RBC awarded $5,000 Blue Water Grant to Kirkland Parks Foundation in support of restoration to Denny Creek at O.O. Denny Park, which will promote native vegetation along the Denny Creek riparian corridor and contribute to better water quality in the stream and Lake Washington. Kirkland Parks Foundation was chosen from among hundreds of applicants from around the world, based on its commitment to addressing water issues and protecting water in urbanized areas.

RBC Blue Water Day 2015
In June 2015, Kirkland Branch employees, family, and community members gathered to help restore Kiwanis Park in Kirkland by removing invasive weeds, planting native species, and picking up litter along the waterfront. It was a fun and rewarding day for all of us!
The Great Puget Sound Duck Dash
The Great Puget Sound Duck Dash is Kirkland Rotary’s annual fundraiser and has been run for 16 years on the shores of Lake Washington. The race runs during the Kirkland Summerfest Festival and in 2014 was held on August 8th in Marina Park. The race has raised over $850,000 which goes directly back into the community through Kirkland Rotary’s various service projects. RBC Wealth Management has several Kirkland employees who are actively involved and regularly participate with the Rotary Club.
Seattle Junior Hockey and Golf Sponsorship
We are pleased to have sponsored our community junior hockey and golf associations. RBC sponsored a placard at the Oshie Sports Charity Golf Event, July 2014 and July 2015 and also sponsored Dasher Boards at the Seattle Junior Hockey Clubs for the 2013 season. These events are supported by several Kirkland advisors.
