Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade (WICC) was founded in 1996 and its mission is:
"To mobilize the Canadian Insurance Industry in the fight against cancer by focusing on cancer research, support, and education."
Since 2002 the WICC BC Chapter has donated more than $1.4mil to the Canadian Cancer Society BC & Yukon Division.
WICC BC holds several highly successful events each year including our Charity Golf Tournament that is a "fun for all" event. This year's event will be held on September 8th, 2014 at the prestigious Vancouver Golf Club.
We are proud to support Camp Goodtimes with the proceeds from our golf tournament. Camp Goodtimes is an unforgettable, empowering experience for children with cancer. The camp provides a safety-focused, medically supervised, fun and recreational experience for children with cancer and their families.
Camp Goodtimes is an internationally acclaimed and accredited summer recreation program that provides a unique summer experience for children and teens with cancer and their families.
Set in the scenic landscape of Loon Lake in Maple Ridge, Camp Goodtimes provides a safety-focused, fun, recreational program at no cost to participants. Camp Goodtimes is accredited by the British Columbia Camping Association and the Canadian Association of Pediatric Oncology Camps (CAPOC).
Camp Goodtimes has medical supervision and other supports on-site. Participants experience adventure, take on challenges, form lasting friendships and unforgettable memories. Many children and teens are empowered by the time they spend at camp. Many families are renewed by a week without the stress of coping with cancer.
The event is always a sell-out with great support from the insurance business community. Many sponsorship opportunities are available ranging from wine and entertainment sponsorships all the way up to the event Title Sponsor. Sponsorships are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and they help offset the costs of the event allowing us to send more of the money raised to Camp Goodtimes.
Entertainment, silent auction, hole prizes, great food and a great cause make up a wonderful day of golf. Please join us!
