The Seniors Services Society is excited to announce our new fundraiser in association with Blue Sea Philanthropy, The Grand Parade! We’re hoping you’ll join us in making this special celebration of Metro Vancouver seniors a success!
The Grand Parade is a moment when Canadians step out to publicly honour aging friends and family, and to fundraise on behalf of the charities who support them. Funds raised for the Seniors Services Society will go directly our Housing program, assisting homeless and at-risk seniors in locating and remaining in secure, long-term housing, as well as assisting those in transition.
We invite you to put together your own Parade team and raise money to help seniors-in-need! We are looking for teams who will collect pledges from within their personal and professional networks, then join us as we parade down the New Westminster Quay boardwalk and back up Quayside drive! We’re aiming for a frolicking, festive event, so feel free to make signs, wear costumes (great for team themes!), and even bring your family and friends (especially parents and grandparents!) down for food, fun, and fundraising!
To register your team or as an individual, please visit us at this link:
The Grand Parade will take place on Saturday, June 1st, 2019; check-in and onsite registration open at 9:00 am on the 2nd floor in the River Market at New Westminster Quay, with the pre-Parade gathering area on the boardwalk, between the Paddlewheeler Pub and the Boathouse Restaurant. Opening ceremonies will be at 10:00 am, with the Parade commencing at 10:15 am.
Thank you for considering joining us on this special day! We look forward to celebrating The Grand Parade with you!
