Upcoming BGC Events
- Pink Shirt Day 2018: Join BGC and friends on Wednesday, February 28th for the annual Pink Shirt Day anti-bullying awareness day! This year, Pink Shirt Day is encouraging others to combat cyberbullying by thinking twice before posting something negative, and instead using the internet to spread kindness – because we know that Nice Needs No Filter! A portion of the proceeds raised through Pink Shirt Day will go to support BGC’s programs which help kids and youth learn important tools to deal with bullying they may experience in their lives.

- Share the Fare with Harbour Air: Harbour Air is introducing Share the Fare Fridays, supporting the BC coastal communities they serve. Book your Harbour Air flight on a Friday, and they donate $1 from every flight to their charity partners (like BGC!). You can help make a difference with a Share the Fare donation of your own on any flight, any day. Ask them how!
- Club House Gala 2018: Save the date for the best “un-gala” in the city! The Club House Gala will be happening on Thursday, September 20th, 2018 at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Be sure to mark your calendar now! You can rsvp your tickets now or enquire about sponsorships by calling 604-879-6554, ext 105.
