Long a part of Vancouver’s history, the annual CKNW Orphans’ Fund Pledge Day returns for 2015 on Wednesday, December 2nd. Raising over one million dollars for BC Kids on a single day in recent years – local celebrities, business leaders, sports teams and philanthropists in the Lower Mainland come together to lend a voice to kids in need in BC, and Patio is proud to support this endeavor once again!
Funds raised during this annual pledge drive make life easier for children in need in BC, by providing specialized equipment, emergency help, and grant scholarships & bursaries. Support is also given to over 100 institutions, agencies and organizations, such as Burnaby Family Life, CanAssist, Boys and Girls Clubs of BC, Learning Disabilities Association of BC, and PLEA Community Services Society.
Managing and creating content for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the Orphans’ Fund on #PledgeDay have been services that Patio has provided as part of our holiday give-back program for the past four straight years. The entire team at Patio will be onsite at the Terminal City Club from 5AM until the final pledges are counted and announced at around 7PM.
Consider taking the time on December 2nd to tune in to CKNW (980AM or listen live online) and hear how your support can help kids across our province with mental, physical, social or behavioural needs. Call to donate anytime between 5:30am to 7pm at 604-222-9898 or donate online at https://www.cknworphansfund.com/donate/
