April 1, 2022 – Vancouver: The HSBC Canada Sevens Vancouver 50/50 Draw presented by Grosvenor in support of BC Rugby, Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon and YWCA Metro Vancouver is now live.
As Rugby returns to Vancouver’s BC Place on April 16-17, the HSBC Canada Sevens Vancouver 50/50 Draw presented by Grosvenor aims to raise substantial funds to help make Rugby accessible and enjoyable for all in BC, provide vital support to the families of seriously ill or injured children, and fund the building of much-needed safe housing for women and children in Burnaby.
Entering year six of their partnership with the HSBC Canada Sevens and building on their strong commitment to the community, Premier Partner Grosvenor returns for the second year as Presenting Partner of the 50/50 draw. “Ronald McDonald House is an organization that is very close to our hearts. The dedicated staff and the families who live there are inspirational,” said Michael Ward, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Grosvenor’s Vancouver office. “We’re also thrilled to support the YWCA who set incredible foundations for women and families across the region.”
BC Rugby CEO Annabel Kehoe said: “We are honored to be partnering with Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon and YWCA Metro Vancouver on this fundraising drive. I know that Rugby fans throughout BC will help us to raise vital funds for three great causes.”
Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon CEO Richard Pass: “We’re very grateful for all the love and support the children and their families who stay at the House have received over the years from the HSBC Canada Sevens event. It’s a weekend filled with energy, excitement, community, and passion for the sport. We wish the participating teams the very best ahead of the event.”
Michelle Sing, Interim CEO of YWCA Metro Vancouver, said: “We are incredibly excited to be a first-time beneficiary of the HSBC Canada Sevens Vancouver 50/50 draw. All funds raised will support a new YWCA housing community in Burnaby, offering much needed safe and affordable homes to single mothers and their children.”
