A Giant Heart
in partnership with
The Vancouver Giants Hockey Club has a long and proud history of giving back to our community. We are honoured to work closely with a number of charitable organizations and causes, just a few of which are listed below.
MINOR HOCKEY FUNDRAISING
WHL EDUCATION PROGRAM
In 2004-2005 the Vancouver Giants were named the WHL Scholastic Team of the Year, while star forward Gilbert Brule was named the WHL and CHL Scholastic Player of the Year.
OFFICIAL CHARITABLE PARTNERS
KIDS UP FRONT
We encourage our Season Ticket Holders and Corporate Partners to donate tickets to Kids Up Front on a regular basis. They do tremendous work providing sporting, concert and cultural event tickets to children and families who otherwise couldn’t afford to attend.
CHEVROLET TEDDY BEAR TOSS
Join us for this annual favourite as we celebrate down at the Pacific Coliseum! Bring a stuffed animal to the game on Saturday, December 8 when the Giants host the Victoria Royals, or buy one on the concourse with proceeds going to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund and the Province Empty Stocking Fund.
Then when the Giants score their first goal of the night… THROW THEM ON THE ICE!!! We’ll collect the stuffies and work with our partners at the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau to ensure they find a warm, loving home in time for Christmas. It’s an experience you’ll never forget
Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society
We encourage fans to donate to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. We have donation bins a select games throughout the season where fans can donate. The team makes regular visits to the Food Bank Warehouse to help sort food and we encourage fans to do so too!
BC CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Giants Co-Owner Michael Buble is a proud supporter of BC Childrens’ Hospital Foundation, having donated countless dollars and hours to their cause over the course of his career. With the Giants, Michael has donated a suite for the entire season which is used to give deserving families a night out to cheer on the Giants!
CKNW KIDS FUND
The Vancouver Giants work in tandem with the CKNW Kids Fund every year at their annual Teddy Bear Toss game to enhance the lives of children living with physical, mental, social, and behavioural challenges in BC communities. All teddy bears at the game that are purchased by fans by donation have 100% of their proceeds going directly to the CKNW Kids Fund to help support the kids and their families, who struggle with the often enormous cost of equipment, therapies and programs so crucial to their development.
VANCOUVER CHRISTMAS BUREAU
The annual Teddy Toss Game that the Vancouver Giants host is more than just an exciting moment for fans to take in. Fans are encouraged to bring teddy bears to the game and when the Giants score their first goal of the game, fans can throw the stuffed animals onto the ice. The thousands of teddy bears are then donated to the Vancouver Christmas Bureau where they will be gifted to families and children to ensure that every child in our community has a smile on their face on Christmas Day.
