BBQ Event

The weekend is over and we’re back in our work routine, but let’s take some time to remember the successful First Annual Community Appreciation BBQ and the fun we all had at this event. Brighton College organized this event in order to be able to thank all our community members for their support over the years and to give something back to the Surrey community.

All proceeds from food sales along with a special donation from the college went to the Surrey Foodbank. We raised and donated over $2,700! Thank you, everyone, for your help and participation. We would also like to thank the Surrey’s Acting Mayor, Linda Hepner for coming and speaking at our event.

A special thank you also goes out to all our sponsors who have been generous enough to donate prizes for the prize booth:

Sonic 104.9
Barangay North Vancouver
Metro Media
Glacier Media
Black Press Community News Media
Starbucks Central City


The newly established Brighton College Student Association made its debut at this event with the inaugural members offering face painting for children, and we also launched our official Brighton College Instagram account. Follow us on Instagram, as well as our other social media pages for the latest college and student association news.

If you missed the event this year, you can find all the pictures from our Tap Snap photo booth on our Facebook page and be sure to stay tuned for our Second Annual Community Appreciation Event next summer!
