Night of Excellence 2021, is our annual fundraiser focused on celebrating community and our Stars. During the evening we also award scholarships and bursaries to our youth leaders. This year our Night of Excellence will be hosted virtually on Thursday, October 21, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM (CST) via Zoom.
All proceeds from the event go towards removing financial, academic, and socioeconomic barriers for youth from underserved communities. Through our programming and your support, we develop leaders.
The theme of the night is POSSIBILITIES.
Our Stars continue to work through the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic as it's clear 2021 is still a year of transition. Through mentorship and one on one support, we are able to encourage our youth to discover their gifts, explore their potential, set goals, and redefine what success means to them in today's world.
The 2021 Night of Excellence is an opportunity to bring our community together and allow them to share and celebrate what they’ve accomplished over the last two years.

Night of Excellence 2021 logo - The story behind the imagery:
Our Stars are at the core of what we do and why we exist at RSF. Night of Excellence (NOE) is a celebration of our Stars and their accomplishments.
All stars within the NOE logo point in an upward direction symbolizing growth and progress. The NOE logo represents our Stars, our youth, it uses elements of the RSF logo such as our iconic shooting star which represents the endless possibilities and opportunities our Stars can achieve.
At the core of our RSF logo is our medicine wheel to honor our Indigenous brothers and sisters, this is represented through the four colors rising up; black, yellow, red, and white. The wheel may not be visible but the colours that represent the wheel are and are arranged in a step formation which represents progress and hope. Within the top star of the NOE logo are the hands of the youth and their ability to change the world and reach for the stars.
