Networking and education are great benefits of being a member of the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, however, those benefits are just a few pieces of a much broader value proposition model that focuses on developing community strength. Community strength is enhanced by economic development and job creation but it’s also achieved when businesses support the not-for-profit organizations in their own backyard.

As part of Crossroads Hospice Society’s (CHS) business strategy, we continue to focus on raising awareness about Crossroads and the end-of-life care services and support we provide for residents of the Tri-Cities, Belcarra, Anmore and New Westminster. In the summer of 2014 we were fortunate to connect with an innovative member of the local business community in a different way.

Reel Steel Ltd., a long-time Chamber member, made the decision to purchase 50 tickets and host their staff Christmas party at our annual Treasures of Christmas gala (TOC). According to Reel Steel, TOC provided a great venue for their staff celebration and an opportunity for a creative way to develop community strength – aligning with their social responsibility efforts.

Our 22nd Annual Treasure of Christmas Gala takes place on Saturday November 21, 2015 at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver in Coquitlam, and is the perfect opportunity to celebrate with your staff while supporting a worthwhile cause! This premiere event includes a Christmas dinner buffet, live entertainment, dancing, live and silent auctions, plus magical Giving trees which will be donated to Hawthorne Senior Care, Canuck Place Hospice, Pacific Assistance Dog Society and a family with Tri-City Transitions.

Together we can make a difference.Feature Member | Crossroads Hospice
