The BV Health Foundation is extremely disappointed to announce that both our Spring Raffle and our Annual Fundraising Gala will be cancelled for 2020. With gatherings limited to 50 this summer & fall and our sponsorships coming from local business that have been hardest hit during the pandemic, we cannot bring you the events you’ve come to know and love.
Stay tuned for information about our 2021 Gala – our tenth anniversary Gala is sure to be epic!
9th Annual Fundraising Gala
The Annual Fundraising Gala is the BV Health Foundation’s signature fundraiser and what allows the Foundation to fund grant requests twice a year. This event is a blast for all who attend and it is also not possible without each component of the fundraising, which includes sponsorships to get the event on wheels and cover the costs associated with hosting such an event, ticket sales and auction sales. The Foundation is very pleased to accept both monetary and in-kind contributions to the Gala in exchange for company recognition. If you prefer, you can also donate anonymously and receive a charitable receipt. Feel free to peruse this year’s sponsorship package to see if there is an opportunity that is a good fit for your business. If you have a different vision for your sponsorship, contact the Executive Director to discuss. This incredible event is always evolving and we are very open to your ideas.
Host a Third Party Fundraiser
A Third Party Fundraiser is where you’re already hosting an awesome event or campaign and are looking to donate proceeds to a worthy cause. The BV Health Foundation is honored to be a recipient of proceeds and is happy to advertise and attend your event. Some recent examples of Third Party Fundraisers the Foundation has been fortunate enough to be the recipient of include:
- Shopper’s Drug Mart Cosmetics Gala
- BV Kinsmen Derby, Dancy, and Comedy Show
- Smithers Subway Cookies for a Cause
- Rotary Club of Smithers Fall Fair Booth
If you would like to host a third party fundraiser on behalf of the BV Health Foundation, please contact the Executive Director so we can increase awareness, provide you with any logos, etc you may need and support your event.
From time-to-time the BV Health Foundation has campaigns and events that could be made a little easier with the help of some volunteers, after all, many hands make light work! Please get in touch with the Executive Director if you or your group would like to be kept in mind when we are next in need.
