March 19, 2014, Vancouver, BC (ISN) – Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis and his family have joined with Team 1040 to donate $55,000 to the Canucks for Kids Fund (CFKF).
Mike’s wife Diane and daughter Kate were joined by James Stuart, the Regional Vice President of Radio and Local TV, Bell Media, BC, to present the gift to the CFKF today.
This is the sixth annual donation gifted by the Gillis family and Team 1040 to the CFKF. The CFKF is in its 28th year of giving back to children’s charities in British Columbia and has given more than $43 million in that span.
