Lights Go Out at Bright Nights: Event Cancelled Due to Theft
VANCOUVER, BC, December 31, 2021 — The BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund needs your help before midnight tonight! The charity’s biggest fundraising event was suddenly cancelled today following the theft of its power source, providing light for millions of twinkling lights.
You can support this charity in need by purchasing your Bright Nights 50/50 tickets!
After extreme weather cancelled Bright Nights in Stanley Park this week, the Burn Fund was hopeful to bring the magic of the holidays back for its final three nights, but sadly now Bright Nights is left in the dark for the remainder of the season.
“Bright Nights has come up against challenges and barriers this year – from Covid restrictions, extreme weather and now this. We are truly heartbroken,” says Gord Ditchburn, President, BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.
Please consider supporting the Bright Nights 50/50 or donate directly to the Burn Fund online.
The Burn Fund is the 43-year-old charity of BC’s professional fire fighters. Proceeds support the Burn Fund’s programs for child and adult burn survivors, including mental health support, as well as funding the purchase of vital medical equipment at BC’s trauma hospitals. The Burn Fund also offers families travelling to Vancouver for treatment the opportunity to stay at Home Away at the Burn Fund Centre. Located at Main and 23rd Ave, Home Away features eight apartment suites and is a healing place for when people need it most.
Tickets for the Bright Nights 50/50 are one for $15, three for $40, and six for $60. The deadline is MIDNIGHT TONIGHT with the draw taking place on January 10, 2021.
