The 50/50 Draw is back as Rugby returns to Vancouver’s BC Place on February 23-25, marking the ninth time the city has played host to an international Rugby Sevens tournament. The HSBC SVNS Vancouver 2024 50/50 Draw presented by Grosvenor aims to raise substantial funds for BC Rugby and VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation’s Pancreas Centre BC, in order to help make Rugby accessible in BC and support critical pancreatic centre research and care in British Columbia.
Entering year eight of their partnership with the HSBC SVNS Vancouver and building on their strong commitment to the community, Official Partner Grosvenor, an international property company active in Vancouver since 1952, returns for their fourth year as Presenting Partner of the 50/50 Draw.
As Office Director for Grosvenor’s Vancouver Office, Alison Miles Cork said: “We are thrilled to return as the Presenting Partner of the 50/50 Draw, continuing to build upon the success of previous years. As long-time supporters of VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, we admire the Foundation’s commitment to advancing medical care in British Columbia. Raising funds for the Pancreatic Centre is especially close to our hearts and we’re grateful that these funds will directly impact survival rates and quality of life for those impacted by the disease.”
BC Rugby CEO David Newson said: “We are delighted and honoured to be partnering with VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation for the HSBC SVNS Vancouver 2024 50/50 Draw presented by Grosvenor. I know Rugby fans will once again turn out in numbers for this incredible weekend of international Rugby Sevens, and help us to raise vital funds for two great causes.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering with BC Rugby for this year’s HSBC SVNS Vancouver. By purchasing a HSBC SVNS Vancouver 50/50 draw ticket, you are supporting VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, and helping to fund world-leading research, and the most specialized healthcare for BC,” said Angela Chapman, President and CEO, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. “These funds raised through the 50/50 draw will support leading medical research and patient care in pancreas cancer through the talented teams at VGH and UBC Hospital. 5-Year survival rates from pancreas cancer are barely 10% and while that figure has improved in recent years thanks to research and better treatments, it is one of the worst cancer diagnoses one can receive. We have world-class talents in Vancouver working to improve detection, treatment, and patient care for pancreas cancer.” On behalf of the Foundation, thank you to everyone who supports the HSBC SVNS Vancouver 50/50 draw. Together, we are leading innovation in health care.
