A 10-year anniversary, a birthday, a huge donation, a new partnership, and a new name.

It’s been a busy day for Roger’s House.

The pediatric palliative care facility made not one, not two, but three announcements on Thursday.

The first was a major donation from the facility’s biggest booster, the Ottawa Senators Foundation. The foundation presented a cheque for $2.2 million, bringing its total donations to over $11 million since Roger’s House was founded 10 years ago.

The second was a new fundraising partnership. The CHEO Foundation and the Ottawa Senators Foundation have joined forces to raise money for the centre going forward, helping it continue and even expand its services for the families of children needing respite or end of life care. "So you're going to have two of the most significant foundations in our community working together to ensure that Roger's House is around for a long, long time,” says Ottawa Senators Foundation CEO, Danielle Robinson.

The third announcement had to do with the man who inspired the centre in the first place. Roger’s House has officially changed its name to Roger Neilson House, to make sure the memory of the former Sens’ Assistant Coach lives on for generations to come.

Neilson lost his battle with cancer 13 years ago. The announcement came on what would have been his 82nd birthday.
