Food Trucks 4 Hope at Richmond News, April 4th 2014
March 31, 2014
Three food trucks from Streetfood Vancouver Society will be heading to Richmond in April to participate in #FoodTrucks4Hope, a special event that is part of the Night of Hope cancer fundraiser. Dougie Dog Diner, Aussie Pie Guy and Reel Mac and Cheese will be setting up in front of the Richmond News office at 5731 No. 3 Road from 11am to 4pm.
Dougie Luv from Dougie Dog Diner said ““My sister, Pamela, passed away at 26 years old from ovarian cancer, she was the baby of the family of five kids, and it was really hard losing her. Cancer is touching everybody around the world.” Last year Dougie raised $1,000 for the Night of Hope and this year he hopes to double that figure with the help of his fellow Streetfood Vancouver Society members.
Suzanne Poudrier from Reel Mac and Cheese said ““Every family has been touched by cancer. I’ve lost two uncles to cancer. And my husband, Perry, his family has been inundated by cancer. So, basically, anything we can do to help we would love to do” and Matt Fitzhardinge, co-owner of Aussie Pie Guy added ““With the sheer number of people who have been impacted by cancer, this is a great cause to support”
All three trucks will be donating a percentage of proceeds from the days sales and will also be giving away prizes in support of the Night of Hope cancer fundraiser.
