40 of the Lower Mainland’s Finest Firefighters on our Bridge!
To continue to commemorate their 40th Anniversary, we helped the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund celebrate by hosting over 40 local fire fighters at the park. We’ve been a proud sponsor of the Burn Fund since 2007. Click here to watch the video.
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, our owner 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 each year, have been donated to the Burn Fund ever since.
