The VC Fighting Irish Varsity Football Team will take on Lord Tweedsmuir on Saturday, September 16 for the annual Vancouver College Homecoming Football Game!
Vancouver College Golf Tournament
The 44th edition of the Annual Vancouver College Golf Tournament was reformatted this year from a “fun raiser” to a fundraiser, a well received change. Marine Drive Golf Course was secured as the new venue with Corex Gold Corporation as the title sponsor. Participants arrived as early as 10 am for the barbecue lunch, friends, and extra practice at the putting green/driving range. There was a full field of golfers (144 people), and the sponsorships sold out.
As much as things change, some things stayed the same. The winning foursome of Danny Goepel (VC'94), Geoff Dear (VC'96), Tyler Federal (VC'94) and Paddy Mahoney (VC'96) came in with a respectable -17 team score to claim 1st prize for another year. Well-done boys!
Thank you to MC & Auctioneer Angus Reid (VC'94) who did a wonderful job with an enviable list of live and silent auction items. All money raised goes towards the Vancouver College Bursary Fund.
Sincerest thanks to the sponsors, the organizing committee, the Vancouver College Alumni Association Board , the numerous volunteers, and the VC students (rowing team, golf team, and yearbook club) who each played an integral role in this successful event.
Save the Date for next year's event!

Where do the funds raised at the 2017 Golf Tournament go?
Blessed Edmund Rice Bursary Fund
In the tradition of Blessed Edmund Rice, Vancouver College ensures that no boy is ever turned away because of financial reasons. Gifts directed towards to the Bursary Program allow Vancouver College to see its mission through by ensuring the continuance of the unique dynamics of the school’s student body. This diversity enriches each student’s educational experience through the promotion of openness and understanding.
Funded from Operations, Special Projects, and donations to the bursary program, Vancouver College sets aside around $500,000 to help families and offers 100 – 130 boys financial assistance annually.
“The good work that Vancouver College does to support families of great need is an immeasurable gift to Catholic education for young Catholic men in Vancouver. The generosity of your benefactors and donors has greatly eased the burden felt by parents. Your school's vision for the needs of all students is to be commended.” Principal - CISVA School, Vancouver
The financial assistance program is part of the Our Next Century campaign, which combines all fundraising efforts of Vancouver College and its affiliates into one comprehensive campaign. This Campaign, which emerged from the vision and strategic plans developed by the VCL Board, is a key means through which the academic vision of the school will be achieved including our campus redevelopment, financial assistance program, and education support.
