Thanks to the many sponsors, donors, volunteers and guests, the Brighton Support Foundation was able to kick-off it’s first fundraising dinner held at the Red Cross Building in Fort Vancouver.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 7824 led by Richard Alvarez posted colors and teamed up with Matt Erickson’s men’s choir to deliver a beautiful interpretation of the national anthem that left an incredible impression to all that attended.
Ron Neiderkofler from Vancouver Laughter Yoga subsequently geared up the evening with an icebreaker that helped the audience settle into a stress relieving laughter session before guests were served a 3-course meal. During dinner, Norm Wolfe of Quantum Leaders challenged attendees to consider community leadership as a way of building momentum to what the foundation is trying to achieve. The foundation’s founder, Ross Kolditz further illustrated the reasons why the Brighton Support Foundation was created and how its mission can help sustain caregivers in doing what they love.
With the silent auction also ongoing throughout the evening, guests were able to bid on a good selection of items that helped contribute to the capital campaign.
Overall, it was well attended and encouraging for the foundation’s first debut in the community.
