Pender’s Investment Team and other colleagues supported the Down Syndrome Research Foundation at their annual Up the Down Market “stimulated stock market” dinner in Vancouver. The event raised its target of at least $25,000 to support reading programs at the Foundation.

Pender was pleased to be an Emerald Sponsor at the Kamloops Hospice Association’s Gala Dinner, An Evening to Remember, last April. This is the 4th year we have sponsored the event which raises money to provide “palliative care [that] helps people with life-threatening and terminal illnesses live as comfortably and as fully as possible in a home-like setting.”

With so many scenic trails and mountains to climb we have many keen amateur cyclists on the Pender team and we therefore like to support our local cycling scene. We are the racing sponsors of Dopo Bici (“après cycling”), a local Vancouver cycling team and are thrilled to see members of the Pender racing team frequently on the podium.

2015: Food Bank

Written on . Posted in Community

In August and again in December 2015, members of the Pender team volunteered at the Vancouver Food Bank. The Foodbank believes that “people should have access to healthy and nutritious food where they live and in a dignified manner.” We were happy to help out at the warehouse to support this important cause.
