Our 8th Annual Fundraising Dinner was held October 29th, 2016 at St Mary’s Ukrainian Cultural Centre. The special evening of celebration, food and fun was MC’d by Sudesh Jangalee and Ryan Millar. We were humbled and grateful for all who attended, volunteered and supported the work of VCDS!

I have been to many fundraisers in the past and I leave all of them feeling impacted in one way or another but the VCDS fundraiser did something to my entire heart.
We have all seen the TV commercials highlighting children in impoverished parts of the world. I would like to think that most of us are struck with that feeling to do something but we live in a distracting world, where we want all the facts about something in 30 seconds which is why I think attending a fundraiser like the one VCDS put on is so important.
Please join us at St Mary’s Ukrainian Cultural Centre (Banquet Hall) 3150 Ash St, Vancouver for a relaxing evening of tasty food, great entertainment, and inspiring stories! share our vision for the coming year. This year the dinner is set for Saturday October 21st, 2017.
The life and story of Baye is one of heartache and challenge, but this resilient young man has redefined it to one of purpose and giving. At a very young age Baye was orphaned and left with no support or family, surviving by his wits and ingenuity.
