While fully funding our own events, Bay City Rollers Fan Events also have quite the philanthropic side.
Examples of our charitable contributions include the following:
The 40th Anniversary Event in Philadelphia donated $2,500 to the following charities (Click on logo for more information)
Pre-event fundraising and memorabilia auctions for The Proud Son of Edinburgh Alan Longmuir Memorial event raised well over £5,000 for Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) who were also in attendance
Bay City Rollers Fan Events raised $900 toward a memorial bench to be placed near Alan’s resting place in Stirling, Scotland.
Funds and donated items totaling well over $1,000 has also been raised for Hope and Help for Sal's Tribe a community based non-profit helping people in need, during this global pandemic. This campaign is ongoing.
In August of 2022 members of Bay City Rollers Fan Events donated close to £700 toward a fundraising campaign set up by Ian Mitchell’s Family for Macmillan Cancer Support. The family’s goal was to raise £500. Bay City Rollers Fan Events members SMASHED that goal within hours. 87% of donations to the family's campaign were made by Bay City Rollers Fan Events members.
It is a tremendous source of pride to be part of such a kind and generous community.
