Donations for Dominic

Welcome to your source for information on how you can help out Dominic's family. Dominic was a two year old boy with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). He passed away on September 3, 2015.

If you would like to donate online, please use the link that will go directly to the family's account.

You can also donate at any Royal Bank location. The numbers you need to know are transit number, branch number and account number.

NOTE: This site is administered by a close friend of the family. Any requests for assistance are mine; every single penny of financial assistance will go directly to the family. Any questions about my relationship to the family can be directed to info@donationsfordominic.com, or you can talk to the family - they are aware of this site.


EXTRA LIFE - TEAM #DOMINICSTRONG: Team #Dominicstrong is inspired by Dominic Rooney, who was diagnosed with leukemia at 11 months old. He's been through so much but his energy and attitude are a blessing to us all.

We give back through Extra Life to the Alberta Children's Hospital in Calgary, which serves so much more than the Calgary area. Dominic is from Medicine Hat, for example.

This team has split from the Alberta Children's Hospital team in order to better track our goals.

‪DOMINIC'S JOURNEY PUB NIGHT: Come on out and help raise money for Dominic's Family. We have no idea of the emotional stress that this family deals with on a daily basis. Let's make sure they don't have to deal with financial stress on top of everything else. Tickets are $40. and will include a burger, fries and your 1st drink (domestic beer or hiball) We will have silent auction and 50/50 draw; plus, Envy Band will be playing.

‪#‎DOMINICSTRONG MEMORIAL CHARITY GOLF DAY, SAT SEPT 12TH: Two dollars from every round of golf sold that day, along with $5 from every family pack entry, will be donated, along with proceeds from the other activities that will be on site from 11am to 3pm.

SUPER SOUTH BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT: The Super South basketball tournament in Medicine Hat this weekend will have a donation box available for people who want to support the upcoming Radiothon. They say Sean, as the local sports editor, supports their teams, and they want to return that support. They, along with the special needs program at McCoy, are also donating the money they get from recycling the bottles at the tournament, and that money will go directly to the family.

MEDICINE HAT TENNIS CLUB: The MHTC family is raising money to assist the Rooney family during this difficult time so they can focus on being with Dominic. Over $500 has been pledged so far, and we hope that we can reach a goal of $1,000 during this season of giving. Donations can be mailed to the club at 3-3271 Dunmore Road SE, Suite 200, Medicine Hat, AB T1B 3R2

DOMINIC'S JOURNEY FUNDRAISER: Join us on Thursday, November 21st at Schanks North in Calgary for a fundraiser and silent auction, with all of the funds raised going directly to the family. Tickets are $10, and include a light appetizer snack bar. Doors open at 6:30pm, with the silent auction running from 7-8pm. Contact Trevor for tickets (or buy yours online), and help us pack the joint for Dominic!

$1 FROM EVERY MEN'S HAIRCUT: Image Hair Studio in Medicine Hat is raising money this month for the family. One dollar from every men's haircut will be donated directly.

STEAK DINNER & SILENT AUCTION: "We are in the process of organizing a steak night and silent auction to raise money and show our support. It is going to be happening at Ralph's on November 14th. Half the proceeds of the tickets for the steak night and all of the proceeds of the silent auction, which will sell off items donated by local businesses, will be given directly to your family."

SUPER MARIO'S - 1UP FOR DOM!:"Our team is on a mission to save kids through video games, and we need your help. Each of us has chosen our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.

On November 2nd, 2013, we'll be part of a huge international celebration of the social impact of gamers with Extra Life and it's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support us with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to that team member's chosen hospital."
