What a night! We were overwhelmed by the level of support and energy in the room at our 2016 Annual Fundraising Gala!
We were thrilled to partner with the Vancouver Foundation’s Fostering Change initiative and the Trevor Linden Foundation to celebrate young people and advocates working to improve the foster care system, and to highlight the important issue of youth ageing out of foster care.
This year’s gala was our most successful ever! With thanks to our sponsors, everyone who bought a ticket, donated to or bid on the silent auction, had a glass of wine, tried their luck at the raffle and made a donation.
The hall was packed with over 600 movers and shakers, and we are going forward with renewed energy and resources, knowing that our important public policy advocacy work putting children and youth first is recognized and supported!
A big thank you to our volunteers, especially our fabulous MC Kathryn Gretsinger.
And a special thank you to our terrific keynote panelists Trevor Linden, Meredith Graham, Ashley Crossan and Cheyenne Andy, for sharing their insights and bright spirits with us.
A special thanks to our sponsors
