Many thanks to everyone who attended our First Annual Business Awards and Open House on Friday, March 6. Extra big thanks to Me-N-Eds for generously supplying the pizza for everyone.
Prior to lunch guests we held a reception in our Emmaus Centre where guests had the opportunity to preview a few of the Art Together Project paintings that will be shown on April 25 at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.
During the meal in our Big Living Room we recognized four corporate donors who made a significant investment in L’Arche in 2014 and received L’Arche’s inaugural Corporate Ark Builders Award. They were:
Burnaby Board of Trade and Scotiabank for choosing L’Arche to be the benefitting charity at their 2014 golf tournament. Scotiabank matched the funds raised on the day of the event all in support of our Neighbours Helping Neighbours program.
Digitally Hip for the way they contribute to L’Arche through IT support.
Vancity for the support given to L’Arche at our annual events as well as the grant provided for our Neighbours Helping Neighbours Program.
