About Us

mnrFun events that bring communities together to raise money for charity!

Founded in 2015, Benevents is the brainchild of Rachel Brown and Mike Leinwand. Together we create and run various year-round events that all aim to raise money for a worthwhile cause; usually The SickKids Foundation. Check out our current events.

Each event is run with the help of friends and family and the community at large.



Rachel Brown – Creative Director

Rachel has been described as a, “glorious weirdo”! Taking her passion for creativity and her love of community togetherness, Benevents was started as a way to combine all of her charity efforts into one organized outlet.


Mike Leinwand – Operations Director

Mike uses his love of organizing events and web design to help make sure all bases are covered and the website is always up-to-date so you know exactly what is coming up and when.
