Gala tickets start at $200 and are available by emailing [email protected] or calling 778-893-9937. Donations can be made at:

The Simon K. Y. Lee Care Home was opened in Chinatown in 2001 and today it provides professionally directed care to senior residents with complex care needs 24/7. As our residents become frail, they require to be moved using ceiling lift transfers, yet currently, only 46 of our 114 rooms are equipped with these lifts, which cost approximately $10,000 each. This fundraiser will help seniors in their mobility and transfers.

The Vancouver-Granville Lions Club and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. have been working together to build community connections, fundraise and promote the quality of life of seniors along with our Goodwill Ambassador Council that was formed in September 2006.
