OPAL Sponsors Lifetime Of The Year Award

September 16, 2016 Update

Element Lifestyle Retirement believes passionately in all that retirees and seniors have to give to their community. In the spirit of encouraging and supporting their contribution, we are sponsoring this year’s Lifetime Volunteer of the Year Award, presented by Vancouver Courier and Tapestry Foundation.

The informative day was a real success last year with more than 500 seniors dropping by to say hello, take in a talk or catch a demonstration. The Vancouver Courier newspaper and Tapestry Foundation are once again partnering to produce this exciting event at VanDusen Botanical Garden, which this year takes place Wednesday Oct. 5, from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. The Lifetime event will once again include fun and instructional demonstrations, booths offering information on supports, services and seniors-related topics, and timely talks. The winner of the OPAL by element Lifetime Volunteer of the Year Award will also be presented at the event. Along with bragging rights, the award comes with  a trip from Ageless Adventures worth $5,000 and a grocery gift card from Stong’s Market. On hand to announce the winner will be the province’s first seniors’ advocate Isobel Mackenzie. Other finalists for the award will be profiled in a future edition of the Courier.



Lifetime Seniors’ Lifestyle Talks & Tables will once again take place within VanDusen’s new Visitor Centre, which includes Truffles, a casual cafe ideal to stop by for a cup of tea or coffee. VanDusen Botanical Garden is located at 5251 Oak St.
