Pink Luncheon


Beginning in 2012, the annual Pink Luncheon has raised over $340,000 to date. Bringing together businesses, partners, local influencers and supporters of CKNW Kids' Fund Pink Shirt Day, this event features a silent and live auction, wine raffle, delicious lunch and guest speakers. Presented by Coast Capital Savings, Pink Luncheon is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, supporting programs dedicated to preventing bullying and fostering healthy relationships. Thank you to all our amazing donors and sponsors!

This year, the Pink Luncheon will take place on Friday, February 22nd from 11 AM - 2 PM at the Blue Water Cafe. Hosted by Simi Sara, featuring keynote speaker Nick Chernoff and guest auctioneer Fred Lee, the Pink Shirt Day Luncheon raises awareness for Pink Shirt Day. Your support allows us to help thousands of children and youth who have been subjected to bullying, violence and emotional abuse.

Kindness requires no manipulation, no focusing on the negatives, and no filtering yourself. It’s simply, truly nice. For social media users, we want them to THINK before they post. We want them to ask themselves if it is: True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary and KIND.
