Summer Street Soiree
11:00 am - 6:00 pm
316 West 5th Ave
For the month of June, Modern Fort along with the amazing author of “The Love List,” Elena Murzello have been feverishly working on putting together a summer market at the end of June. This “Summer Street Soirée” will include a lot of talented local vendors who wish to help make a difference in the community. Our cause for June will be to support the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund, specifically the Young Burn Survivors Camp that occurs every July. This camp helps hundreds of young burn survivors from all over BC and their goal is to really help these kids get to know each other, have fun, and forget about their cares and worries. Every year the Burn Unit health professionals, adult burn survivors, and professional fire fighters donate their time as counsellors as it is extremely difficult for these young burn survivors to get through both the physical and emotional scars. The Burn Fund pays for each camper and for the operating costs of the camp. This is why we’re putting together a summer market together. To help provide more funds for this incredible camp.
The goal of the Summer Street Soirée is to create a family friendly event where local businesses can get together to make big differences. The market will include retail vendors, food carts, food trucks, live music, a DJ, face painting, and more.
