40th Annual Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala Raises $650K

Vancouver, BC – More than 800 guests attended the 40th annual Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala on March 10 in support of S.U.C.C.E.S.S., one of the largest social service agencies in BC. The event raised an amazing $650,000 through dinner ticket sales, live and silent auctions, raffle ticket sales, sponsorships and donations, making it one of the most successful events hosted by S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation. Funds raised will support essential S.U.C.C.E.S.S. programs and services, such as the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Simon K. Y. Lee Seniors Care Home, Chinese Help Lines, Youth Leadership Millennium Program, Korean Counselling Program and the Multicultural Early Childhood Development Program.

“The gala was extremely popular and all dinner tickets sold out one month prior to the event,” said Walter Soo, Jeffrey Chan and Timothy Hsia, Co-Chairs of the 2018 Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala. “We are grateful for this overwhelming support and are thrilled knowing that proceeds will make a difference for so many newcomers, seniors, youth and women in the community who depend on S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’s services.”

Some of the dignitaries in attendance included Hon. Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia; Hon. Harjit Sajjan, Minister of National Defense; Hon. John Horgan, Premier of British Columbia; Malcolm Brodie, Mayor of Richmond; and Tong Xiaoling, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Vancouver.

The evening began with a spectacular performance that took guests through the rich history of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Throughout the evening, guests enthusiastically bid on more than 150 silent auction items, including an extensive selection of wine, electronics, furniture, dining certificates and other exquisite items donated by local businesses.  

The feature performance by Fred Cheng was the event’s highlight. A Canadian-born singer and actor now based in Hong Kong, Fred serenaded guests with a variety of English and Chinese songs.

Since 1997, Air Canada has been the Official Airline Sponsor of the Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala and has flown in excess of 100 artists, including Fred Cheng, from different cities to Vancouver to participate over the years.

“We are thankful for the support and contributions from our generous sponsors and donors who make the gala a resounding success year after year,” said Brandon Hui, Chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation.

First launched in 1978, the gala has raised more than $11 million for S.U.C.C.E.S.S. programs and services that receive no or partial funding from the government.

The Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala is one of three major annual fundraising events hosted by S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation. The other events are the Walk with the Dragon and a golf tournament.

Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala
Celebrates 40th Anniversary with Special Performer Fred Cheng

Vancouver, BC – S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation announced today that Fred Cheng, a well-known Hong Kong singer and actor originally from BC, will be its feature performer at the 2018 Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala.

“Fred is passionate about giving back to community. We’re thrilled that he can help us raise funds and celebrate the gala’s 40th anniversary as our feature performer,” said Brandon Hui, Chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation. “Similar to Fred’s wide fan base, S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’s services touch the lives of newcomers and Canadians of all backgrounds and ages.”

To mark the gala’s 40th year, guests will enjoy a variety of multimedia presentations in addition to Fred’s performance. “This year’s gala will be one to remember,” said Gala Co-Chairs Walter Soo, Jeffrey Chan and Timothy Hsia. “We will walk guests through the rich history of S.U.C.C.E.S.S., highlighting how its social services have made a positive difference in the community. We are thankful to all our donors and sponsors for their contributions, including Air Canada, which has been our Official Airline Sponsor for more than two decades.”

Canadian-born Hong Kong actor and singer Fred Cheng rose to fame after winning first place in the Hong Kong singing competition, The Voice of the Stars (VOS), in 2013. He has starred in numerous television series including Shine On You, Love Bond, The Charm Beneath, and Forensic Heroes. Fred signed with TVB Music Limited’s subsidiary Voice Entertainment and released his first album “Story of a Panda” in September 2014. Fred’s fan base spans the globe and includes all ages, with fans in Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, the US and other countries.

“Vancouver is my home. I always support S.U.C.C.E.S.S. because my parents were also immigrants,” said Fred Cheng. “At that time, the Chinese-Canadian community was small and it was difficult to find social services. I know that S.U.C.C.E.S.S. does an amazing job at helping new immigrants. I’m deeply honoured to be invited to support this great cause.”

The 2018 Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala will take place on Saturday, March 10 at the Westin Bayshore, Vancouver. S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation hopes to raise $500,000 to support S.U.C.C.E.S.S. services that receive no or limited government funding.
