Our largest community fundraising event raises money to help remove barriers to learning for students living in poverty and to enrich the lives of all students across 37 VPS schools. Held each spring at the Hilton Vancouver, an estimated 600 people will attend.

As a table sponsor, you will receive one table of ten seats, company name on relevant marketing and event materials, and recognition at the Luncheon. Additional benefits are available to higher level sponsors.

Event sponsorship underwrites the cost of the event, so that all funds raised during the luncheon go directly to help our students.

Community Champions’ Circle
