ParkLane Supports the 11th Annual Canadian Cancer Soceity Diamond Ball
Vancouver, BC, February 14, 2007 - ParkLane Homes is proud to announce its support of the 11th Annual Canadian Cancer Society Diamond Ball. The black-tie gala dinner, dance and auction has become a leading date in Vancouver's social diaries and is one of the Canadian Cancer Society's signature fundraising events. The popular themed event attracts over 500 guests each year and has raised more than $3.7 million dollars since it began in 1997.
The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society's vision is to create a world where no Canadian fears cancer. Since 1938, the Canadian Cancer Society has operated as a national charitable organization providing valuable cancer information, funding research and educating Canadians on cancer risks.
In British Columbia and Yukon, the Society works with approximately 20,000 volunteers in over 80 communities delivering local support and prevention programs, advocating for healthy public policies, operating a toll-free cancer information service and providing cancer information in a variety of languages. In addition, the Canadian Cancer Society has funded $19 million in BC based research over the last five years and recently established the Canadian Cancer Society Chair in Primary Prevention of Cancer at UBC.
One of ParkLane's goals is to provide support and give back to the communities where they build. Over the past 25 years, ParkLane has grown to be one of western Canada's largest and most recognized residential developers building more than 5, 500 homes in over 90 award winning communities across the Lower Mainland.
