VKM Festivals Thanks Title Sponsors

Contrary to what many believe, the Vancouver Kiwanis Music Festival is not able to cover expenses for adjudicators, venues and administrative costs through entry fees. Thus, public sponsorship is vital to our ability to provide the high standards of professionalism in adjudication and accessibility for all aspiring young musicians that have been the hallmark of our Festivals over these many years.

It is our pleasure to acknowledge The Pattison Broadcast Group who through their ‘Save the Music Foundation” -- connected to their two radio stations: 93.7 JRFM and 100.5 The Peak -- will be our title sponsor through 2016. Not only have they been generous contributors to the Vancouver Kiwanis Music Festivals, they have many times been publicly recognized for outstanding and ongoing grants to other community-serving organizations and events that benefit not just the musically gifted, but the socially and financially disadvantaged.

We also welcome the significant financial support of Mr. Robert Conconi who, through the Robert L. Conconi Foundation, has been a major benefactor to our Festival and the community at large. Mr. Conconi has chosen to support us because he too believes it is important to encourage and promote the efforts of young musicians in our community, and for that we salute him.

Lastly, we acknowledge our long-standing relationship with the Kiwanis Club of Vancouver which provides funding derived from the Province of B.C. through gaming revenue.

To all our supporters -- our most grateful thanks!
