About the Sports Celebrities Festival

The Sports Celebrities Festival presented by Wheaton Precious Metals is an inspiring and interactive gala celebrating the power of sport and the human spirit. Celebrating 20 years, this popular event has raised more than $5.4 million in support of Special Olympics BC and the Canucks for Kids Fund.

Funds raised help empower athletes with intellectual disabilities to gain confidence, acceptance, and pride through sport, and also provide vital opportunities, resources, and care to children and families throughout B.C.

Event highlights:

  • Meet and mingle with local sports heroes, including the entire Canucks roster, Special Olympics athletes, and more

  • Challenge Canucks players in great games such as table hockey

  • Photos with your favourite Canuck

  • Silent and live auctions

  • Live entertainment
