event details


What an Event. What a Community!

When The Beatles wrote “Come Together” in 1969, the song had nothing to do with the Reena community. However, on May 28th, our community did just that - we came together at Striking for Reena to smash all previous fundraising records, raising more than $392,000!!!

Presented by Westdale Properties and Fabricland, more than 300 people joined us at Playtime Bowl to cheer on Reena’s MVP Bowlers. In addition to the record number of generous sponsors, this year’s event garnered more than 1100 individual donations.

Teams reached out to families, friends and colleagues to raise funds for vital, life-changing initiatives and programs, including summer and winter camps; employment; respite; and vans to transport the myriad of individuals supported by Reena.

Congratulations to top fundraiser Rachel Libfeld and her team Rachel’s Rock N’ Bowlers for raising over $34,000!

A HUGE thank you to Ronald Struminger who flew in from New Jersey to surprise us with a generous donation of $50,000!!! Ronald, and his children, Jarod and Phoebe are dedicating a van in memory of their wife and mother, Marla Fruitman Struminger.

We extend a heartfelt thank you to our exceptional Emcee, Tom Brown, Toronto Blue Jays mascot ACE, and Marlies mascot Duke.

We are incredibly grateful to our event chairs – Steven Justein, Elaine Justein and their outstanding committee, all of our sponsors and donors, bowlers, board members, politicians, staff, volunteers and every member of the extended Reena family who CAME TOGETHER to make Striking 2023 a HUGE success!

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
