Experience on Vancouver Island!
July 29 – August 1, 2019 | Victoria, British Columbia
The David Foster Foundation is excited to have offered for a second year a 4-day luxury opportunity to enjoy beautiful British Columbia with 16-time Grammy Award winner, David Foster. The Simply Spectacular Experience on Vancouver Island raised $1.4 million for transplant families and would not have been possible without the support of the Villa Eyrie Resort & GAIN Group as well as Sylvester & Peter Trzewik.
The event featured several performances including the Foundation’s founder & chairman, David Foster who was joined on stage by his wife and vocal powerhouse, Katharine McPhee, American Idol winner, pop and gospel singer Ruben Studdard, Grammy-nominated, Juno Award winner and Canadian singer-songwriter Trevor Guthrie. Also joining them on stage was The Voice finalist and Queen medley aficionado Tony Vincent, the charming and wildly entertaining acoustic collective The London Essentials, world’s master mentalist Lior Suchard and anchor and producer of CTV’s Etalk and co-host of YOUR MORNING Ben Mulroney as emcee. Each evening’s events took place in a unique spot that captured the beauty of Vancouver Island.
THANK YOU to all of our donors, sponsors, and volunteers that made this fundraiser possible.
Above all, your generous support and dedication helped fundraise $1.4 million for families whose children are going through the life-saving organ transplant process.
In the darkest days of our families’ lives, the support and generosity from our partners and donors is a true shining light.
Billboard was featured on over 200 OUTFRONT Media Billboards!
