BC Games Society welcomes official financial sponsor

Coast Capital Savings signs on with three-year corporate partnership

The BC Games Society and Coast Capital Savings have announced a new three-year corporate partnership that will support the BC Summer and BC Winter Games and recognize B.C.’s best young developing athletes.

As part of the agreement, Coast Capital Savings will be the Official Financial Institution sponsor, beginning with the Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games.  The investment delivers on Coast Capital Savings’ promise to help build a richer future for youth in our communities, says Wendy Lachance, Director of Community Leadership, Coast Capital Savings.

“We want to help provide young people access to sport and the benefits it brings.  While competition is the backbone of the Games, at its heart are the spirit of competition, camaraderie and friendship, teamwork, and the setting of goals for individual and community excellence.  We are honoured to partner with the BC Games family to promote these shared values,” says Lachance.

Included in the partnership an awards program has been created to offer financial support to B.C.’s young athletes over the next three games.  The awards will provide 16 athletes with a $500 Coast Capital Savings bursary for their educational and athletic pursuits.

“Partnering with a company that shares our values of supporting youth and community is a great endorsement of the work we are so passionate about,” said Kelly Mann, President and CEO of the BC Games Society.  “We welcome Coast Capital Savings to our family of corporate partners and look forward to working together to create exceptional experiences for everyone at the BC Games.”

The Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games will take place July 17-20 and will feature up to 3,900 athletes, coaches and officials from across British Columbia.  Competition will take place in 19 sports at venues throughout the Nanaimo area.
