Pay It Forward
Kitsilano, in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; is our community. It is known colloquially as “Kits”. Kitsilano is located in Vancouver’s West Side along the south shore of English Bay.
We love our community here at Westcoast Smile Dental Studio. We have stunning Kits Beach and our landmark waterfront Kits Pool, great shopping, and a plethora of food places geared toward health and fitness. It is one of the most livable neighbourhoods in all of North America. I am one lucky dentist; I love my community and I get to live and work here.
I am blessed to have these advantages but not all in our wider community have these blessings. I feel that being part of a community with so much carries with it a responsibility to help make it better for the some that don’t.
Below are some of the great organizations I have partnered with in our charitable efforts:
- Annual Canucks for Kids PlayOff Run (2010 In office promotion raised $3200!)
- Underwear Affair/BC Cancer Foundation (stafff raised $800)
- Pro Bono Denture case
- Canuck Place Hospice
- Annual Women’s Golf Classic (Pacific Autism Family Center)
- Annual Pret Pour Tea Auction (Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation)
- Wigs for Kids
- Cut a Thon (David Charles)
- BC Children’s Silent Auction
- Make A Wish Foundation
- Big Sisters of Greater Vancouver
- Vancouver Firefighters
