Meet a Sponsor: Postmedia

3 August 2017

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, Special Olympics BC programs help thousands of individuals with intellectual disabilities celebrate personal achievement and gain confidence, skills, and friendship. Here we look at how Postmedia has helped SOBC empower athletes to enrich their lives through the joy of sport.

Local daily news media The Province and Vancouver Sun have been proud supporters of Special Olympics BC for more than 20 years. They’ve donated media space to our print advertising campaigns to create major awareness of our initiatives throughout B.C., and conveyed the exceptional stories of our athletes through their ongoing editorial support.

Postmedia and The Province have been closely involved in promoting our marquee events, including the New Car Dealers / Special Olympics BC Auction that thrives on the generosity of New Car Dealers throughout B.C., as well as the Goldcorp Invitational Golf Tournament, which brings significant support from the mining and banking sectors.

Postmedia is also an important media partner for the Sports Celebrities Festival presented by Wheaton Precious Metals, providing significant awareness for this key fundraising event, and offers us a way to publically express gratitude to all our donors, partners, and event participants.

Postmedia employees also volunteer their personal time to Special Olympics BC initiatives by providing committee support and photography services at many SOBC events.

We are very grateful to Postmedia for spreading the word about Special Olympics BC, and for their ongoing support of important events and initiatives across the province.
