Get on board: Help kids attend the Surrey Children's Festival


Did you know that for just $300, you can sponsor a bus to transport a class of school children to the Surrey Children’s Festival?

Surrey has the greatest number of children under 18 in Metropolitan Vancouver, and often there is little funding for extra activities.

Many schools have indicated they are unable to attend the 2011 festival because they do not have funds for bus transportation, so the festival is reaching out to the community to ask for help.

In return, they will provide on-site signage recognizing your contribution (or a tax receipt – your choice).

You will also be invited to the sponsorship appreciation event, attended by Surrey council members and community business leaders.

The Surrey Children’s Festival takes place from May 26-28 at Bear Creek Park.

To arrange your bus sponsorship, contact Marnie Perrin at 604-501-5583 or, or Debbie McKeown at 604-592-6984 or
