Bellies were full at YVR yesterday! Vancouver Airport Authority’s Airfield Emergency Services (AES) team hosted a pancake breakfast to raise money for the Burn Fund’s annual Burn Camp.
It was an early start for the team as they set up in the dark at 4:00 a.m. But as the sun started to rise and the smell of fresh pancakes and sausages filled the air, Sea Island employees started lining up for their food. Held in a parking lot at Templeton Canada Line station, hungry employees enjoyed their breakfast under the basking sun and rocking beats by a DJ. A number of employees even brought their children and received special tours of Red 4, an Oshkosh Striker that is used to respond to aircraft incidents.
The breakfast raised $2,225 for Burn Camp which Vancouver Airport Authority’s Community Investment program topped up to $5,000. Burn Camp is a week-long summer camp providing children affected by burns with a week of fun and excitement. To learn more about this important organization and Burn Camp visit their website.
Thank you to the AES teams for coming up with the idea and hosting the breakfast as well as the Sea Island community for coming out and donating to this great cause.
