White Cane Week is February 5-11 and we at Camp Bowen are looking forward to connecting with members of the community. This year, we are involved with three White Cane Week events.
Firstly, we will have a table at the 6th annual White Cane Week event held at Park Royal Shopping centre in North Vancouver. The event will be taking place on February 7 from 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM. Make sure to come say hi and learn more about our programs. Everyone who attends the event will be entered into a draw for a $100 mall gift card.
Secondly, we will be visiting with school children on Bowen Island on February 9 to talk about living with a visual impairment. We will be discussing topics such as Braille, technology, service dogs, and cane travel, as well as having a Q&A session.
Last but certainly not least, we will be holding a White Cane Week themed event and fundraiser at Doc Morgan’s Pub and Grill on Bowen Island on March 11. Come join us for a fun evening of live music and food. There will be an auction, a 50/50 draw, and a door prize, with proceeds supporting our adult, child, and youth camp programs. Doors open at 5:30 PM.
