BIG! love to our friends on Bowen Island who raised over $5,000 to help youth!

On July 4th, Bowen Island Gives (BIG!) hosted their 4th annual BIG! hike & after-party to raise funds in support of youth at Covenant House Vancouver. The hike started at 10 AM with 70 hikers that ranged from age 7 months to over 70 years old!

That evening, Ginger 66 donated their time and incredibly fun talent to entertain over 100 guests at the BIG! party. The 9 km round-trip trail up Mt. Gardner & Dance floor at Cates Hill Chapel was filled with love from a community passionate about helping youth in search a brighter future.

BIG! thanks to everyone involved who helped make this fundraiser such a success for our youth:

Ginger 66, Peter King & Bowen Island Bus, Cates Hill Chapel, Julie Cree & Artisan Eats, Tim Hausch for hanging the BIG! banner at 4-corners, Scott Slater for his photography, all of the wonderful shops and groups for helping us spread the word on island and off, all of the dedicated volunteers who spent countless hours planning the festivities & facilitating the entire day & night and over 100 participants and donors for your support!

You have made a BIG! difference in the lives of over 200 youth by proving them with support in our Continuum of Care this summer. Thank you!
