Giving back at Variety’s “Boat for Hope”

Posted on Posted in pirates, roving characters

Congratulations to Variety’s Boat For Hope for another fantastic event at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. Every year, Variety puts together this excellent event for for kids with a variety of special needs, taking them on ships of all shapes and sizes around the coastline of our beautiful city. For the last 3 years, The Character Guys has taken part by providing our hilarious pirate characters to greet the kids & families and see them off on their ocean adventure.

It was great taking part again, getting the excitement up and making the kids and parents laugh while they waited to board the ship. We’re always impressed by how many great people put their time into this event -including the Variety volunteers, the Vancouver Fire dept., the RCMP, Cinemazoo and many others.  And this time, we found out that the Victoria Boat For Hope has a real pirate ship!

 

You couldn’t keep us away from that one!  Arrrrr!
