Beginning in 2012, the annual Pink Luncheon has raised over $340,000. Bringing together businesses, partners, local influencers and supporters of CKNW Kids’ Fund Pink Shirt Day, this event features a silent and live auction, wine raffle, delicious lunch and guest speakers. Stong’s Market is pleased to support this wonderful event that raises money towards programs dedicated to preventing bullying and fostering healthy relationships.

This year, the Pink Luncheon will take place on Friday, February 22nd from 11AM – 2PM at the Blue Water Cafe. Hosted by
Simi Sara, featuring keynote speaker  Nick Chernoff and guest auctioneer Fred Lee, the Pink Shirt Day Luncheon raises awareness for Pink Shirt Day.

Kindness requires no manipulation, no focusing on the negatives, and no filtering yourself.

Stong’s believes in being a good neighbour. Our support of local communities and charities dates back to the first store opened by Carson Stong in 1931.

Mr. Stong’s generosity and leadership have served as the foundation of Stong’s commitment to the community. That involvement has earned us a reputation of being more than just the local grocer. Stong’s proudly supports our local community focusing on our Children’s Schools, Educational & Sports Programs as well as our local Community Organizations & Festivals, through the donation of products and services for fundraising events.

Online School Rebate Program

For all parents/faculty that spend money online at express.stongs.com, Stong’s can donate 4% of the orders back to the PAC. The more parents that participate, the higher the revenue will be generated for the school. I.e. For every $1000 spent, $40 will be donated to the PAC. Just choose your school during the checkout process and we will take care of the rest!

Stong’s Market is providing an exciting opportunity for parents to raise money for their children’s school through their weekly grocery purchases. We at Stong’s feel confident that this is an excellent opportunity to raise much needed funds for the school and ultimately our children.
