Vancouver, B.C. – S.U.C.C.E.S.S. is pleased to announce that our 45th annual Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala will take place at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver Hotel on Saturday, April 23, 2022.
Two years of pandemic restrictions have drastically increased our need for program funding to support vulnerable newcomers, seniors, youth, women and families who are struggling. At the same time, public health orders have impacted our regular fundraising activities.
“We are thrilled to be able to host the Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala in person again this year,” said Queenie Choo, CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation. “The funds raised at the Gala are critical, allowing us continue to provide essential social services to newcomers, seniors, families and youth in need.”
The theme of the Gala this year is “CommUNITY & Resilience,” as we honour how our communities have come together during the ongoing pandemic, which has deepened poverty, isolation and health challenges among our clients.
Building upon the event’s 45-year legacy, the 2022 Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala will provide a luxurious night of philanthropy, entertainment and fine dining to hundreds of business and community leaders, with both in person and online attendance options. The festivities include a cocktail reception, luxurious silent and live auctions, delicious West Coast cuisine and live performances.
“After 24 months, we’re excited to finally meet in person again to celebrate together,” said Brandon Hui, Chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation. “We’re grateful for the generous support of community leaders, corporate sponsors, individual donors, and all three levels of government who are helping us make this year’s Gala a night to remember.”
The fundraising target is $425,000. Gala Tier 1 tickets are $368 and Tier 2 tickets are $568. Gala tickets are available March 4 at: https://successfoundation.getsimpletix.com/e/101245.
