Responders raise more than $150,000 for Burn Camp
Vancouver, BC – On Thursday, April 25, 2019, local responders gathered at the Terminal City Club for an evening of entertainment and fine dining to raise funds to send child burn survivors to summer camp.
The fourth annual Capilano Group Responder Dinner honoured long-time supporters of the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund, Nancy Stibbard and the Capilano Group. More than 200 guests gathered to pay tribute to the honourees while supporting Burn Camp through live and silent auctions.
In 2007, Stibbard and her team responded to an urgent need to help the Burn Fund when severe storms caused major damage to Bright Nights, a significant fundraiser for burn survivor support programs. Stibbard, the owner and CEO of the Capilano Group, reached out to help the Burn Fund with the idea of creating a fundraiser to replenish lost donations from the annual holiday event at the re-opening of the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Since then, the Capilano Group has donated more than $475,000 and hundreds of hours of time to the Burn Fund.

2007 was the year that Capilano Suspension Bridge Park met the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund under mutual circumstances. Severe winter storms caused major damage to Bright Nights in Stanley Park severely impacting donations to the Burn Fund. At the same time a 46-ton tree fell onto Capilano Suspension Bridge, closing the park for five months. To celebrate Capilano’s re-opening, owner and CEO of Capilano Group, Nancy Stibbard, decided to hold a fundraiser for the Burn Fund to help replenish lost donations from their annual holiday event. That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship, as partial proceeds from Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park has been donated to the Burn Fund ever since.
