Here’s How it Went: EmotionsBC’s 5 Year Anniversary, “Together We Thrive” 2023

What an amazing night!

On Saturday October 21st, 2023, we held a cocktail event at The Hills at Portal Golf Club in Surrey and invited our community to join us in celebrating EmotionsBC’s 5 Year Anniversary.

Over the last five years, we have impacted thousands of families across BC. With a team of nearly 50 volunteers over the years, we have been able to reach 28 communities, hold 156 support + skills groups, and impact over 15,000 people through their relationships in the community.

Throughout the evening, we had wonderful “Champion” speakers, Susan Byron, Andrew Neufeld, and Paul Taylor share a little bit about what EmotionsBC means to them and how mental wellness plays a role in their lives. As well, we had some of our very own participants share their story and their journey with EmotionsBC.

We also had an incredibly special guest, Gordie Hogg, Canadian politician and former MP for White Rock, join us with his family on that evening. His inspiring words moved our guests and brilliantly highlighted the need for mental wellness and peer support in our community.

Thank you to everyone who attended and donated items to our silent auction. With your help, we were able to raise over $8,000 to continue supporting the families and caregivers we provide our services to.
