Nanaimo Port Authority Donates $10,000
The Nanaimo Port Authority is the latest organization to sign on as a ‘Friend of the Games’, stepping up with a $10,000 donation for the Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games.
As a result of their contribution, every athlete who participates in the Games will receive a commemorative pin to remind them of their experience. Additionally, this donation will also allow for the successful execution of the sailing competition.
“The Nanaimo Port Authority is very excited to be one of the lead sponsors for the BC Games and for the sailing competition” states Bernie Dumas, President & CEO. Our opportunity to support the distribution of pins to all BC Games participants recognizes their achievements in qualifying for this Provincial competition. We are honoured to be associated with this 2014 BC Games legacy in the Harbour City and wish all athletes the very best in their individual and team disciplines.
Volunteers Still Needed
Approximately 3,200 volunteers will be required when the 2014 B.C. Games roll into Nanaimo this summer from July 17-20.
Information on volunteer opportunities can be accessed by visiting the Games website at www.bcgames.org.
Jeff Lott, Nanaimo Games President, stated “We recognize that these Games would not be possible without the support of our community leaders and volunteers. We thank the Nanaimo Port Authority for their support, and value their commitment to creating lasting memories for all of the athletes participating in this community event.”
The Games will feature approximately 3,900 athletes, coaches and officials from across the province, competing at 19 different venues. It is estimated that the Games will contribute $2.6 million to the local economy.
