Thanking Vivian Chew and the Love & Compassion Group

This past summer, Covenant House Vancouver was very thankful to be chosen as the recipient of proceeds from a fundraising event hosted by our wonderful friend Vivian Chew and her Love and Compassion Group.

Every year since 1999 Vivian holds this event to raise funds for nonprofit organizations in the community as well as celebrating special occasions in life. The evening includes modern and traditional dancing, music and singing and an incredible dinner in a local restaurant. There was a lot of love and joy in the room this year as Vivian and her husband also celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary!

The performers donate their time and talent, and Vivian works tirelessly to plan and organize for months, which includes making costumes for all the dance numbers.  This year, the event was attended by close to 300 friends and family who generously gave to Vivian’s chosen charity. Over $10,000 was raised so that we can continue to offer our much needed programs to young people who are facing homelessness.

A huge THANK YOU to Vivian and her amazing gift of giving in support of Covenant House! Her devotion to encourage others to contribute to their community and to those in need is very powerful – we are so grateful to Vivian and all who supported this event!
