Fancy & David Foundation Makes a Difference




On January 14, 40 of our mentors and mentees cheered on the Victoria Royals at their Lunar New Year celebration game with tickets donated by the Fancy & David Foundation. Their generosity gave our matches an opportunity to spend time together and share an experience out in the community.

In addition to providing tickets for our matches to the hockey game, Fancy Ching and David Wong also presented Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria Capital Region with a $10,000 cheque at the game to support mentoring programs for children and youth in our community.

“BBBSV is a favoured charity of our Fancy and David Foundation because we both recognise that the children and youth of today will be our leaders of tomorrow. As such, every child and every young person should be afforded the best opportunities for personal development and success, the best mentorship and the best exposure to life-skills and leadership skills.” – David Wong, Fancy & David Foundation

We are so grateful for the incredible support of the Fancy & David Foundation to help us grow our programs for local children and youth in need of developmental mentoring relationships. These programs help young people to build confidence, learn new things and experience opportunities as they grow into happy, healthy members of our community.

There are currently over 150 young people on our waitlist who are waiting to be matched with a supportive adult or teen mentor. Fancy & David’s donation will help us to enable even more life-changing mentoring relationships for these children and youth in our community who need someone to look up to, spend time with and share experiences with.

“I have been supporting BBBSV since I learned about kids being cyber bullied, having anxiety in building relationships and communicating with the real world. I believe as a child, we need a role model, mentor or coach to guide us through the many challenges and learning to make decisions. We feel that BBBSV can help in this area and in building a better future for the next generation.” – Fancy Ching, Fancy & David Foundation
