With the start of the 15th Annual Winter Wonderland Festival, Aspac Developments Ltd. again participated in the ‘Tree Lighting Ceremony’ held on November 28, 2015.
Those in attendance included: Mr. Joe Peschisolido, MP for Steveston-Richmond East; the Honourable Linda Reid, MLA for Richmond East; Richmond’s Mayor Malcolm Brodie, Councillors Bill McNulty, Derek Dang and Linda MacPhail, Community Leaders, Rotary Members, and many others.
Winter Wonderland is organized by the Richmond Sunset Rotary Club and proceeds from this year’s event will benefit various charitable programs and initiatives both locally and abroad. Ms. Yvonne Lo, on behalf of Aspac Developments Ltd., joined the dignitaries on stage to express gratitude for ASPAC being able to play such a large part of this wonderful community event. Guests were then invited to join the Rotary Club members for some Christmas carols accompanied by the talented Mayor Brodie on the piano. The event was concluded by the lighting of the giant Richmond City Hall Holiday tree.
Dedicated to giving back to the community, Aspac Developments Ltd. has been the Event Sponsor for this special celebration for seven years in a row – donating $10,000 each year towards this worthy cause.
The Tree Lighting Ceremony marked the start of a display of 30 beautifully decorated trees supported by local businesses. The public was invited to visit the Richmond City Hall main floor area to vote for the ‘Best Dressed’ tree.
This year, ASPAC’s tree theme was a decorated festive tree with an interactive feature, especially for the children. With ‘Choo Choo Charity’ as the theme, the public was encouraged to donate to ‘Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives’ before playing with the train set that runs around the decorated tree. Aspac matched all donations up to the total of $1,000.
