Congratulations to our 2015 winners:

    Spirit of Giving

    Playsted Sheet Metal with an outstanding $10,500 Donation!

    This year, funds raised through the Spirit of Giving will purchase new Holter Monitors for the Cardiology Program at BC Children's Hospital.

    Thank you goes out to everyone who participated and also helped us raise over $23,000 in monetary, gift cards, and toy donations!


    The Spirit of Giving category was introduced to encourage fundraising and acknowledge efforts made by the passionate teams who work year-round to raise funds to present as bribes. Over the years, however, this category has become so much more; it's evolved into a philanthropic movement that inspires change, and brings us together to improve the healthcare provided to kids in BC.
