Last Saturday, an enthusiastic group from Teekay braved the rain to volunteer at the annual Variety event, Boat for Hope. This is Variety’s signature outdoor event of the year, allowing children with special needs and their families to come together, act like pirates and have fun – both out on the water and back ashore. The rain didn’t stop the children coming down to the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club dressed as pirates, looking for a boat to find their treasure. The excitement on their faces showed it all.
The Teekay volunteers along with an army of others supported in many different ways to ensure the day was a massive success. Roles supported by Teekay included serving cotton candy, assisting the children to get on/off the boats and running the Piggy Racing Game. Good fun was had by all and #teekayspirit shared with the kids to help them enjoy their day.
Thanks to all the volunteers who support this very worthwhile event!
