The Crisis Centre is honoured to be the recipient of $7,026 from the Memory Remains Fundraiser – an event held on June 23rd, 2012 at the Fox and Fiddle Restaurant in Langley, organized by Kylee and Jeff Lapierre and their family in memory of Trevor Lapierre. With approximately 250 people in attendance, along with the Canucks’ Mason Raymond, the evening was a great success. Kylee and Jeff Lapierre, the brother and sister-in-law of Trevor, talked about the importance of suicide awareness and prevention – and how the Crisis Centre’s programs and services are a lifeline for people in distress.
About two years ago, the Lapierre family lost Trevor – a bright, young man who was struggling with depression. It is with great passion and dedication that the Lapierre’s decided to host a fundraiser to give back to people, like Trevor, who are in need of support in their darkest hours. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly to the Crisis Centre’s Youth Suicide Prevention Programs, which empower young people with the skills and tools to help themselves, and their peers to cope with stress and deal with crisis.
