Q: Is my ticket purchase/donation tax-deductible?
A: No, since Rest Easy is not a registered charity, we do not issue tax receipts. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Q: Will tickets be sold at the door?
A: Yes, a limited number of tickets will be available at the door. However as this event grows in size, we are asking folks to buy their tickets in advance. You can now conveniently buy your tickets online.
Q: What is the date and time of the 2015 event?
A: The 2015 Rest Easy Fundraiser takes place at the Foggy Dew Irish Pub in Coquitlam on May 24, 2015 at 5pm.
Q: My company wants to donate to the live auction or make a corporate contribution. How do we reach you?
A: Please direct your sponsorship questions to Tanya at resteasyfundraiser[at]gmail.com.
Q: Where do the proceeds from the fundraiser go?
A: We are very proud to be able to donate almost 100% of our proceeds directly to the families of transplant recipients. We have very little administrative overhead (basically just our web hosting) thanks to support from volunteers, friends, and family. We use the monies raised to buy gift cards for the Sandman Suites on Davie Street which are then distributed to new transplant candidates when they receive their pager from St Paul’s Hospital.
Q: How many families have you helped so far?
A: Since starting the fundraiser in 2010 after Chris’ heart transplant, our generous supporters have helped nearly 20 families.
