About the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre
The Bruce Oake Recovery Centre is dedicated to the memory of Bruce Oake, who passed away from an accidental drug overdose in 2011 at the age of 25. Scott and Anne Oake, Bruce’s parents, along with brother Darcy, are determined to have his life and death return something positive to this world. In 2013 the Oakes founded the Bruce Oake Memorial Foundation and set forth on the path of building a long-term residential treatment facility – to be called the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre. The Bruce Oake Recovery Centre will provide unique and proven addiction treatment that will empower individuals with the resources and skills necessary to successfully re-enter society and thrive.

About Darcy Oake
It began with an innocent card trick. At the age of 7, Darcy Oake’s father, award-winning sports broadcaster Scott Oake, asked his son to pick a card from a deck, remember it and put it back in the deck. His father drew that card, astonishing his young son and forever changing his life’s path. His father did not know any magic tricks. It was pure luck. Or was it? Fate had put its hand into play.
From that day forward, Darcy, by all accounts a shy boy, spent countless solitary hours standing in front of a mirror perfecting magic tricks. He ate, slept and breathed his newfound passion and like all successful magicians, began to find himself in his craft and develop his unique on stage showmanship.
