On June 4 more than 400 people filtered through the doors and into iMining's wine tasting event at Mahony and Sons tavern. With fifteen generous corporate sponsors, a ticket sell out, and the BC Lions cheerleaders, the Felions, prowling for would be raffle participants, iMining's not-for-profit event raised $38,500 for Covenant House Vancouver, $8,500 more than the initial target.
iMining and its management have long supported Covenant House Vancouver and view the partnership as steadfast and long-term. "We are extremely proud to be able to host such successful events in support of this important local charity," said Robert Eadie, President and CEO of iMining.
"Were it not for the generosity of socially responsible companies such as those who partnered with iMining to make the event such a wonderful success, we would not be able to fulfill our commitment to reducing youth homelessness in Vancouver," says Marty Staniforth, Senior Development Officer at Covenant House Vancouver.
Covenant House Vancouver sends a HUGE thank you to iMining and to everyone who supported this event!
