We are trying something new this year! In February we are supporting any 3rd party fundraiser for SOS BC that registers with us. We will list on our website, social media, and encourage folks to attend … or hold an event of your own. Doesn’t have to be big, complicated, or fancy. You can easily transform an event that was happening “anyway” into a great fundraiser. Just fun, legal, and not require life insurance …. We hope people will use their imagination, get together with friends, family, and neighbors, and enjoy doing something good for foster kids.
The information and registration forms for the February fundraising fun are up on the website:
As soon as you have sent in the registration form, we can link you up with our social media, logos and so forth.
Hope the members of the German Community will join in to have some fun spreading a little love for the kids!
The Vancouver Alpen Club is hosting the kick-off event this weekend, on February 3rd – it’s already on the SOSBC.org website.
If you have any trouble downloading anything, just let me know, and I can send to you in an email.
With warm regards
A message from Jason McBride:
I am reaching out on behalf of Whitecaps FC. We are currently running an online auction that features a Bastian Schweinsteiger signed poster. At the time of this email the bid on it is $100. I know if it reaches the right audience that it will help us maximize our fundraising efforts for BC Children’s Hospital. The auction is live until Monday at noon (Pacific Standard Time). To view this item and more please go to Whitecapsfc.com/auction
Message about Signed Poster
Own this framed signed poster by German footballer and Chicago Fire midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger!
Schweinsteiger spent 13 seasons at Bayern Munich, playing in exactly 500 matches across all competitions and scoring 68 goals. His honours at the club include eight Bundesliga titles, seven DFB-Pokal titles, a UEFA Champions League title, a FIFA Club World Cup title and a UEFA Super Cup title. He joined Manchester United in 2015, playing sparingly for 18 months before moving to Chicago Fire.
Schweinsteiger played for the German national team from 2004 to 2016. He is Germany’s fourth most-capped player of all time, having earned 121 caps and scored 24 goals, in a 12-year international career starting in 2004. He was selected in their squads for four European Championships and three World Cups, including their victory at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In 2014, Schweinsteiger was named captain of the national team. He played his last match for Germany on 31 August 2016, after which he retired from international football.
Any help spreading this through your network would be much appreciated. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
The German Canadian Business Association (GCBA) would like to invite you to join them for one magic night at a soccer match between the Whitecaps and LA Galaxy on Saturday, April 1st, 2017. If they find at least 50 people, this will be an amazing fundraiser, if not, it will still be a fun night that includes business networking, a game, and a good time.
One of the GCBA’s new members is a representative of the Whitecaps and he is hoping to bring together many from the 200, 000 Germans living in Greater Vancouver. Please invite your family, your friends, your neighbours and your colleagues to join us! Share this event on Facebook.
