NPA Campaign Launch + Fundraiser – Letter from our President

Dear NPA Members, Supporters and Friends,

Last night, at the beautiful Vancouver Convention Centre West, we held our Celebrate Vancouver Campaign Launch and Fundraiser. I had the privilege, along with our NPA Vice-President, Rob Macdonald, to speak to a sold out crowd filled with many local business owners, engaged citizens and young professionals.

We are proud to announce that this event has raised well over $100,000 that will help the NPA gear up for the campaign trail ahead. This huge showing of attendees and funds raised proves that we are a revitalized, renewed and engaged team focused on listening to our communities while ensuring that transparency and accountability are returned to city hall.

Part of the festivities included the launch of our online Fundrazr drive announced by Fundraising Co-chair, Nicola Fairweather. We have been told that we are up against “Goliath”, however, we believe in the “Davids” of the world because we know that together the NPA and the people of Vancouver can make a difference. We are asking YOU, the people of Vancouver, to donate. Whether you choose to donate $1 or $100, your valued contribution will be put towards spreading the message to Vancouver that we do have a choice. You can donate by visiting our page at https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/9l915/sh/63Kzc6.

On behalf of the NPA Board of Directors, Staff and Caucus, I would like to thank everyone who took the time to come out to show support to our campaign and our team.

This is the first event of many to come this year so stay tuned and keep yourself updated by visiting our website (www.npavancouver.ca) or by signing up for a membership by emailing us atinfo@npavancouver.ca.

Let’s keep this momentum going to take back our city in November!

Peter Armstrong, President
