Richmond, BC – The 13th annual S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation Charity Golf Tournament, held at the Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club in Richmond today, successfully raised over $91,782 for the S.U.C.C.E.S.S.

These include programs for immigrants, refugees, youth, women, families and seniors.

“Since the inaugural tournament in 2005, more than $1 million has been raised to support important services and programs at S.U.C.C.E.S.S,” said Brandon Hui, chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation and co-chair of the 2017 golf tournament. “We were glad to see so many corporate and individual teams come out and support this great cause. Many sponsors and companies also used this event as a way to network and engage their clients.”

More than 100 philanthropic golfers participated in this year’s event, who enjoyed 18 holes of spectacular golfing. Golfers competed for the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Cup and other trophies, such as the longest drive, straightest drive, closest to the pin and best putting.  

“We wish to thank our generous donors, sponsors, golfers, staff and volunteers who helped to make today a wonderful day,” said Linda Wong, co-chair of the tournament. “In particular, we are grateful to The Chan Family Foundation for their non-stop support over the past 13 years as our Green Fee and Power Cart Sponsor.”

 in Surrey and Richmond

Surrey, BC – S.U.C.C.E.S.S. will be hosting a series of community roundtables called All Our Neighbours, as a continuation of the Forum, Safeguarding Our Communities, Upholding Our Values, which took place in February. The roundtables aim to engage local communities in open and genuine conversations on the idea of neighbourliness, with a focus on recent anti-immigrant sentiments and racially discriminatory incidents in Canada. All Our Neighbours will be held in at least 6 different cities throughout the Lower Mainland, and each event will accommodate approximately 60-80 people. The first two  roundtable took place in Coquitlam late August. The next two sessions will be held in Surrey and Richmond. Details to the event are listed below:

Event:   All Our Neighbours: Surrey - S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Community Roundtable Series
Date:     Wednesday, September 13, 2017
Time:     6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Venue: Room 120, Surrey Libraries - City Centre Branch, 10350 University Dr, Surrey, BC V3T 4B8

Event: All Our Neighbours: Richmond - S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Community Roundtable Series
Date:     Tuesday, September 19, 2017

All Our Neighbours is part of an on-going response to anti-immigrant sentiment and incidences that occurred in 2016. With the current resurgence of white supremacist rallies and counter protests, the timing of All Our Neighbours is especially relevant. All Our Neighbours will provide a space where local residents can share their anxieties and fears, and better understand the reality of newcomers.

All Our Neighbours also responses to the recent Vancity study which found that 82 per cent of visible minorities in the Lower Mainland say they have experienced prejudice or some form of discrimination, while 70 per cent of all respondents, regardless of their cultural origin, have experienced or witnessed some form of discrimination or racism. The Vancouver Foundation has also found loneliness to be a top issue in the city of Vancouver. All Our Neighbours brings together these issues and explores this intersection of neighbourliness and diversity across the Lower Mainland.

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. would like to thank Vancity and Coast Hotels for their contributions to All Our Neighbours.

Free Community Fair to Provide Latest Information on Health and Oral Screening

Health-Fair

Vancouver, BC – The annual Health Fair, jointly organized by S.U.C.C.E.S.S., the Chinese Canadian Medical Society BC (CCMS) and the Canadian Chinese Dental Society of BC (CCDS), will take place on Sunday, September 17, from 9:30 am to 4:15 pm at Bonsor Recreation Complex (6550 Bonsor Ave, Burnaby, BC). The event is free and will provide members of the public, especially the Chinese-speaking community, with the latest and relevant information about health awareness, disease prevention and treatment, and healthy lifestyles. The opening ceremony will begin at 11:30 am.


“We are thrilled that there will be more programs available and more new partners to support the event this year,” said Paul Cheng, co-chair of Health Fair 2017. “The event offers a platform for local non-profit organizations, community groups and businesses to inform fair visitors about health resources and services available in the community.”


Health Fair 2017 will feature health talks, screening and exhibition booths. A total of 14 lectures will be presented in Cantonese and Mandarin by physicians, dentists, physiotherapists and environmental health experts.


“As health and medical terms may be hard to understand, we want to break language barriers for members of the Chinese-speaking community.” said Dr. Brian Xinyong Wang, president of CCMS and co-chair of Health Fair 2017. “In addition to those popular topics such as fall prevention, cognitive impairment and dementia, back and joint pain, and gastrointestinal diseases, we will have new talks such as radon at home, to be presented by a representative from Health Canada.”


According to Dr. Jonathan Wu, director of CCDS, the Society will continue to promote oral care and oral health by presenting two talks and providing a free oral screening to attendees, a popular feature of the fair that had been well received in the past.


“Thanks to the hard work of our staff and volunteers and our continued partnership with the Canadian Medical Society BC and Canadian Chinese Dental Society of BC, the annual Health Fair has become an important community event that promotes population health and wellness,” said Queenie Choo, CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. She also noted that while the seminars are delivered in Chinese, the exhibitions are available in both English and Chinese, and all can benefit from the event.


Health Fair 2017 is presented by Gilead Sciences Canada. The event is also supported by UBC InterCultural Online Health Network (iCON) and the City of Burnaby.
Since its inception in 1991, the annual Health Fair has hosted more than 300 seminars attended by 30,000 participants. Last year, the event drew more than 1,200 visitors from across Metro Vancouver.
