Highlights from our First Grand Volunteer Celebration in Vancouver [Check out our event photos!]

Updated: 2 days ago

Something truly special unfolded on Saturday April 17th, 2024: Captain Scott Legacy Society hosted its inaugral Grand Volunteer Celebration event! It was the perfect finale to the Community Care Adventure 2024, which was a series of volunteer events that brought our community closer together during National Volunteer Month.


With over 200 attendees at the Grand Volunteer Celebration, including volunteers and representatives from various community organizations, the event was a heartfelt tribute to the everyday heroes among us. It was our way of saying a big "thank you" for our community's many volunteer leaders, and their selfless dedication to making our world a better place.


The celebration was packed with entertainment for everyone to enjoy. From virtual reality experiences and a fun photobooth from Evolve Events, to face painting by Lydia (Facepaint Vancouver), and a free movie screening of "Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire" inside the Cineplex theatre, there was no shortage of smiles and laughter.


A special shout out also goes to Vancouver AI Marketing for their generous donation of website and marketing services valued up to $5000 to Captain Scott Legacy Society! They're a seasoned marketing agency with a big heart for community support. Thank you, Vancouver AI Marketing!


And let's not forget what seemed to be our attendees' favourite part of the event! People could not stop raving about the cultural culinary journey they experienced - courtesy of social enterprise Flavours of Hope. They're all about celebrating diversity through food and empowering newcomer and refugee women. Another huge shout out goes out to Colombian Antojitos, Sabor a Yucatan, Damaskino Pastry, Egyptian Bites, and Elaichi Patisserie. Each bite was a flavourful nod to cultural diversity and empowerment.


As the event came to a close, we couldn't help but feel grateful for everyone who made the celebration possible – from our amazing volunteers to our generous sponsors and everyone in between. It's moments like these that remind us of the incredible impact we can have when we work together!


The Grand Volunteer Celebration was more than just a party; it was a reminder of the extraordinary things we can accomplish when we come together as a community. As we reflect on the joy and camaraderie of that morning, let's carry that spirit forward and continue spreading kindness and making a difference in the lives of those around us! See you all again, next year!
