Vancouver Canadians Hot Stove Luncheon:

The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Foundation brings fans together to celebrate our efforts from within our Foundation.

Are goal remains to not only to raise funding for our many programs, but also bring awareness to the many local children from our own neighborhoods that need our commitment and support.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and partners, we have been able to welcome more than 1,000 children between the ages of 8 and 13 out to historic Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium and provide them with the opportunity to play organized baseball, cost-free which includes their equipment, transportation and meals.

We are also proud to say we have had more than 100 local volunteers donate their time to this project allowing children to feel safe, build confidence and learn the game of baseball on the same diamond that the Vancouver Canadians play on each summer.

The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Foundation has also used this annual luncheon to raise funding in the development of student-athletes at the University of British Columbia, Canada’s Women’s National Baseball Program and Challenger Baseball.

This event last year saw the unveiling of Western Canada’s first fully-synthetic baseball field designed specifically for children and family’s associated with Challenger Baseball, a program that welcomes and assist children who wish to play baseball that deal with physical and/or cognitive challenges.

This field, named the Variety Challenger Baseball Field of Dreams is located just steps away from historic Scotiabank Field and gives baseball players of all ability the chance to dream of playing baseball under the warm glow of the summertime sunshine.

Tickets go on-sale at Nat Bailey Stadium and can be purchased by either calling 604 -872-5232 or visiting their site at www.canadiansbaseball.com
