On November 28th, 2021, Forward Foundation hosted a sold-out Happy Hour Mingler at Barnside Brewing Co. in Delta, BC. One of the owners of Barnside Brewing is one of Forward founder Christopher Cayford’s oldest friends and Barnside has been a generous past sponsor of the Cayford Gala, so the location really made sense for an event that could be hosted within the Provincial Health Organization guidelines.

The evening included a 50/50 draw and raffle prizes, along with delicious food and drink. It was long overdue to get together with the Foundation’s closest supporters after being unable to gather in person due to Covid for such a long period of time. The 60 people who attended this laughter- and smile-filled gathering were a wonderful combination of old and new supporters and friends. Nearly $3000 was raised, which will help provide experiences for young adults with serious, life-limiting illnesses. Thank you for your continued support; we look forward to seeing everyone again in the near future!
