Since 1997, Zero Ceiling has been part of the fabric of Whistler. Thanks to the compassion, vision, and dedication of this community, we’ve been fighting homelessness and providing a safety net for young people for a quarter of a century.
Last Friday night, Oct. 14, we celebrated this incredible milestone at our 25th Birthday Family Dinner, presented by the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. More than 200 supporters from Zero Ceiling’s past, present, and future shared stories over a delicious buffet dinner and generously gave what they could to support our programs.
Thanks to them, we raised an amazing $110,000! This is in huge part thanks to generous matching donations from the Fairmont Foundation, Whistler Blackcomb Foundation, and the Szocs Foundation. This means we are a huge step closer to our goal of raising $250,000 before the end of the year.
We’re so grateful to every single person who was part of our 25th birthday celebrations! To our fundraising committee, volunteers, speakers, staff, board, partners, and everyone who donated, bought a ticket, bid on the silent auction, or took part in our raffle— thank you for believing in us. Most importantly, thank you to all our program participants, past and present, who celebrated with us and who are the heart of the Zero Ceiling community.
Zero Ceiling exists because we believe everyone deserves a home. Thanks to your support, we can continue providing a safety net for young people facing homelessness for as long as we need to. And meanwhile, we’ll keep advocating for change so that one day, no young person in our community experiences homelessness.
