As a not-for-profit charitable organization Beaverton Special Events reinvests proceeds from their events into community assets and amenities. The Harold Lodwick Citizenship Award provides a cash prize to the winner to be directed to the community project of their choosing.
Brock’s Big Bite festival proceeds have supported the Food Banks, the Brock Community Health Centre and the Randy Skinner Splash Pad. Other fundraising is used directly to bring community projects to life such as the Accessible Kayak Launch.
In 2017, in honour of Canada’s Sesquicentennial, Beaverton Special Events, in partnership with the community, launched an ambitious public art project. The Wishing Tower is a unique sculpture designed to become an iconic Beaverton harbour landmark. A prominent public art piece on our waterfront, it will attract visitors on land and arriving by watercraft. Local artist, Ron Baird, generously offered his talents to create and produce this kinetic sculpture for our community.
Individual, business, and corporate investments are critical to bring this gift of art to life. Thank you to our generous supporters who have already contributed to the campaign. All donations, large and small, go a long way in helping us achieve our goals. Charitable receipts are always available for your donations.
