2015 Steveston Dragon Boat Festival

By Keith Yee in Uncategorized on August 28, 2015

We had a wonderful time at the 2015 Steveston Dragon Boat Festival!

1This all-day event on Saturday 22 August featured 78 teams from across BC and Washington, including our very own RFB Volunteers’ Dragon Boat Team!

The team made us proud, and we also collected nearly $1000 in donations, plus 100 lbs of food!

Thank you to Dragon Boat BC for supporting the food bank by collecting donations, to the many people who donated, and to the RFB volunteers who came out to collect donations, talk about our programs, and cheer the team on.

Thank you also to the UBC Boathouse for offering a boat to the RFB paddling team every Thursday evening from April till about closer to race day. The location worked out quite well for many of our paddlers and we look forward to practicing  again from this location next year.

If you’re interested in volunteering with the Richmond Food Bank and joining the Dragon Boat Team, please Contact Us for more details!
