Wesgroup is proud to have supported Canuck Place Children’s Hospice’s 12th annual Gift of Time Gala on October 15, 2016 at The Westin Bayshore. It was a great opportunity for us to give back to the organization that provides palliative and respite care services for sick children all across B.C. The event was an enormous success, having raised a record-breaking amount of $1.1 million for Canuck Place.
It was an evening well spent, with attendees moved by Canuck Place to “live with extraordinary attention;” something that the organization encourages the children and families that they support to do as well. Exciting live performances, delectable food, and the Gift of Time Gala live auction were also major highlights from the evening, which included a priceless Canucks experience that allowed one lucky fan to join his or her hockey heroes in the starting lineup during the national anthem.
As a people powered company, Wesgroup believes that it’s important to give back to the community, especially considering the inspiring stories that were shared that night by parents who have lost their children to illnesses that are still in search of cures. In being a sponsor of this incredible event, Wesgroup was able to raise key funds for Canuck Place’s hospice and invest in medication, equipment, and respite care. Not only was Canuck Place’s Gift of Time Gala an amazing experience, it also gave our team at Wesgroup the opportunity to better the lives of sick children who need extra attention and care.
We are proud to have been a part of such a special event and we look forward to next year’s!
