When Helena Santos plans a party, she makes it a celebration to remember.
Helena has always been a passionate advocate for animal welfare and supporter of the BC SPCA. It came as no surprise to family and friends when Helena’s 50th birthday wish was to use this special occasion as an opportunity to raise both funds and awareness for the animals she loved so dearly.
Planning an exciting weekend of events, including an educational tour of the Vancouver Shelter, Helena set the goal of spending 50 hours with family and friends to raise enough funds to help 50 animals. By inviting family and friends to make a donation in exchange for entry to each event, Helena was able to raise over $3000 for animals across the province.
Helena has inspired us to think of how we can use everyday events to make a difference in the lives of animals. We are so proud to call Helena a member of the BC SPCA family. Thank you so much to Helena for her generosity and being such a fantastic ambassador for the BC SPCA!
