On Wednesday, CBB Vancouver hosted a Family Meal at the Ronald McDonald House near the BC Children’s Hospital. Staff and lawyers alike attended the event to BBQ a big meal for all of the families at the Ronald McDonald House. The event was a great success as we served over 100 people!
The Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation to ill children and their families when they must travel to Vancouver for treatment at the BC Children’s Hospital. Families at the House are often thrust into these difficult situations quickly and by surprise. Offering to make a meal for them gives them one less meal that they have to plan for and a little extra time to spend with each other.

After the event, we received a tour of the new facilities at the House, got to spend some time in the Magic RoomTM, and went down the slides that go from floor to floor. All in all, it was a great way to spend some time out of the office and with awesome colleagues.
The summer students of CBB Vancouver are responsible for organizing this charitable event for staff and lawyers to attend each year. This will be the third year that CBB Vancouver attended the Ronald McDonald House for a Family Meal during the summertime and it is a tradition we hope to see continued!
