Mandatory Fundraising For Parents

The Royal Canadian Air Cadets is a dynamic and structured youth program sponsored by the Department of National Defense and the Air Cadet League of Canada.  Basic training is partially funded through the Department of National Defense however without the participation of parents and guardians many of the additional activities the cadets enjoy would not be possible.

All parents and guardians of 810 Squadron are asked to make a commitment to volunteer at fundraising activities throughout the year. If you are unable to commit your time and talent, serious consideration should be given to a financial donation. It costs approximately $1,766.00 per Cadet to run the program.

Volunteers Are Required For Bingos!

We run a monthly Bingo at Castledowns Bingo Hall located at 12222 137 Avenue in Edmonton. Proceeds from Bingos go towards rental of the gymnasium, classrooms and storage area at Kenilworth School. It also goes towards rental of storage facilities at the Boys and Girls Club, extra gym rentals for Band Practice Monday nights, and school library for board meetings and interviews.

Currently, we require all parents and guardians to commitment to volunteering at 4 Bingos per cadet family to support the squadron.  Each Bingo requires a minimum of 14 volunteers with a maximum of 18 be available.  Volunteers must arrive between 4:00 and 4:30pm and stay until the end at approximately 11:30 or midnight. Volunteers are provided with a dinner break and the Squadron will pay up to $15.00 towards a meal at the concession.  Please note Bingo volunteers need to be 18 years of age or older.
