Celebrating our 20th birthday with our young people!

Last week we had an incredible celebration for our 20th birthday with our young people. We had over 90 youth attend and everyone received a treat bag and was entered into a draw for some great door prizes

We were excited to have Blue Monkey Photobooth at the event and there were lots of great photos and fun with costumes. The amazing Homer St Café catered and served the meals for free despite being hit with a flood in their own restaurant. A big thank you to them for the beautiful feast of roast chicken, gravy, roasted potatoes and coleslaw.

We had a cake cutting and sang happy birthday and a young woman insisted she wanted to be part of the cake cutting because she had been using CHV since she was 13 and she is 21 now so she felt like she wanted to be a part of the birthday celebration. Another youth created and sang a very fun rap about Covenant House Vancouver. The youth also contributed beautifully decorated “feathers” for our mural celebrating 20 years and close to 20,000 youth served.

Big thank you to all the young people who attended and to the staff, volunteers and donors who made the special night possible!
