The weather may be getting cooler but Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) will be heating up with the latest addition of the Hall of Flame Calendar for the upcoming year.
Firefighters from the 2018 calendar will be doing signings this year on Wednesday, October 4 from 3:15 to 5 pm in the Jim Pattison Pavilion at VGH. The calendars will be $20.
The proceeds of the Hall of Flame calendar go towards the Burn, Plastic and Trauma Unit, the largest burn centre in the province, providing a wide range of services to treat and improve the quality of life for people who suffer from severe burns and wounds. Over the years, the calendars have raised as much as $15,000 for the cause.
In past years, the calendars have created some controversy.
“Some may view the Hall of Flame Calendar as controversial, but we like to look at as a tongue-in-cheek approach that capitalizes on firefighter stereotypes, but at the same time it raises money for local charities and promotes a healthy lifestyle amongst our firefighters,” says James Docherty, one of the calendar’s coordinators as well as a firefighter with Vancouver Fire and Rescue Service.
Come join us and support a great cause!
When: Wednesday, October 4, 3:15 to 5 pm
