Alumni & Friends Christmas Luncheon
We are pleased to share that the 2nd Annual Vancouver College Irish Christmas Luncheon, presented by Choom at the Terminal City Club, was a success! Our keynote speaker, Dr. Keiron McConnell (VC'86), delivered a powerful message on his experiences working with gang suppression units and left the audience in awe.
We are also privileged to announce that the VCAA presented a gift of $40,000 to the school's Bursary Fund through the proceeds raised at the Golf Tournament. On behalf of the VC Alumni Association, we express our gratitude to those who sponsored the 2018 Golf Tournament, especially to our title sponsor Wilson Beck Insurance Group, and those who donated gifts in kind for our live and silent auctions.
Mark Reid (VC'86) and Steve Jagger (VC'96) introduced the VC Alumni Corridor Paver Program, an opportunity for VC alumni to leave their legacy at Vancouver College. With 28 supporters, we raised $77,500 at the luncheon, which is a testament to the incredible connection many of us continue to have with VC .
Special thanks to Mark and Steve for organizing the event , Keiron for the wonderful speech, and to all the sponsors for supporting the luncheon. Please save the date for the next Irish Luncheon on December 5th, 2019!
