CKNW Kids’ Fund Pledge Day 2023

Houle team volunteering at the CKNW Kids' Fund event.

On Giving Tuesday (November 28, 2023), our Burnaby team participated in the annual CKNW Kids’ Fund Pledge Day charity event! Every year, this long-standing radiothon brings in millions of dollars by phone and online donations. This fundraising event goes towards supporting BC kids and their families as they navigate various health challenges. This includes providing grants for specialized medical equipment, therapies, and programs for at-risk youth. Visit here to learn more or donate.

We were able to send a team of five volunteers to help answer the phones to raise funds for the CKNW Kids’ Fund. Houle also donated $5,000 and Lori Podnevar was interviewed live on-air about Houle’s involvement, which you can hear in the video above. In total, the event raised more than $3.3 million for the important work of the CKNW Kids’ Fund, topping the previous record of $2.7 million set last year. Read the news article here.

Overall, we’re proud to support this important cause and the communities where we live, work, and play.

Since 1945, CKNW Kids’ Fund has granted millions of dollars to support hundreds of thousands of children with different challenges. Through the generosity of organizations and communities, they helped families by providing grants for essential specialized medical equipment, therapies, and programs for at-risk youth.
