Vancouver, B.C. - The Vancouver Aquarium is pleased to announce a partnership with the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund to give all general admissions proceeds on Friday, November 25 to the fund. Fire Fighters Burn Fund Friday will also encourage Vancouver Aquarium members to donate on this day. This year marks 25 years that Bright Nights has been an annual tradition in Stanley Park.
This day will help provide the Burn Fund with much needed donations to help as many burn victims as possible. Fire fighters and Vancouver Fire Prevention Team volunteers will be on site to “shake the boot”. “Smoky”, the team’s mascot, will also be on-site to greet guests. A fire truck will be on site for families to enjoy. These activities will take place in the Bill Reid Plaza and throughout the Aquarium on November 25.
Proceeds from Fire Fighter Burn Fund Friday will support the Burn Fund’s burn survivor programs, including Burn Camp and the Home Away Program, which provides accommodations to survivors, fire fighters and their families who must travel to Vancouver for medical treatment.
“It is important to the Vancouver Aquarium that we partner with organizations like the BC Professional Fire Fighter’s Burn Fund, because they have such a lasting impact on our community. November 25th is our chance to support the incredible work being done by their team,” said Vancouver Aquarium Executive Director Clint Wright.
“Thank you to the Vancouver Aquarium for generously donating ticket proceeds from Firefighter Burn Fund Friday to our organization,” says Jeff Sauvé, Executive Director, BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. “The Burn Fund is also thrilled to have the opportunity to visit the Vancouver Aquarium with our fire fighter volunteers to promote fire prevention and accept donations in support of our burn survivor programs.”
