Pink Shirt Day Luncheon

Friday, February 21st
Elisa Wood-fired Grill, Yaletown

The 9th annual Pink Shirt Day Luncheon is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year and supports programs dedicated to preventing bullying and fostering healthy relationships. Hosted by CKNW on-air host Lynda Steele and featuring keynote speaker Bridgitte Anderson, President and CEO of Greater Vancouver Board of Trade, the event is an afternoon of empowerment and conversation in support of Pink Shirt Day. Bullying can take many forms and unconscious bias and oppression in the workplace is a very real and prevalent issue effecting many Canadians; Bridgitte will be sharing her professional experiences and what it means to be a woman in today’s corporate environment.

Stong’s Market is pleased to, once again, sponsor this important event by providing all of the floral arrangements. If you wish to attend this year’s Pink Shirt Day Luncheon please email info@pinkshirtday.ca.

Adopting a more plant-based diet one meal at a time.

If you had ever wondered about the growing trend of plant-based eating, this seminar is for you!

Jenn will be discussing the nutritional, environmental, and social benefits behind the trend even if it means adding only one or two plant-based meals per week. She will also help you with meal planning to incorporate these foods into your diet in a fast & delicious way.

Community

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.
