Throughout the year, Pacific Blue Cross and BC Life raised funds by:
Holding a computer auction: Employees bid for slightly used but completely functioning laptops.
Taking part in the 17th Annual Slo Pitch Weekend Weekend held in support of the BC Children's Hospital Foundation: As usual, the tournament was lots of fun. We raised more than $5,000. Shaving some heads: Simon Matthews, Security Officer and Kyle Wu, Senior Actuarial Analyst, both agreed to shave their heads in support of the Foundation. Together they raised more than $3,000. Holding a golf tournament: Combining a good cause with a fun day of golfing is a win-win. As usual, we thank our clients for enthusiastically supporting our tournament. Selling Jeans Day pins: This year we sold Jeans Day $20 pins that allowed employees to wear jeans every Thursday in May. Within a week, we raised more than $4,000.
Supporting the BC Children's Hospital Foundation is a fundamental part of giving back to the community. Many of our employees have visited the hospital as concerned parents and grandparents; some of our newer hires remember being patients.
Pacific Blue Cross has supported the Foundation since its inception. Our own John Crawford, Senior Vice President of Finance, has always been a strong advocate for the cause. John also works tirelessly behind the scenes and inspires his colleagues to get involved. Every year he challenges the employees of Pacific Blue Cross and BC Life to raise more money, and every year we come through. In the last 5 years, the organization has raised more than $250,000.
Together we can do just about anything! Thanks to our employees, our clients and our customers for their participation and dedication. – less–ZoomInfo
