On August 11, 2012, the entire staff of Vision Investment Properties joined forces with UGM, an urban relief organization based in Downtown Eastside, and the Glowbal Group, a corporate collection of upscale restaurants, at the Third Annual BBQ Picnic in Oppenheimer Park for the Downtown Eastside community. Hundreds of additional volunteers were also on hand, as everyone worked together to prepare more than 5,000 meals to those less fortunate in the Vancouver area. They helped prepare a menu of 5,000 gourmet hamburgers; 900 pounds of coleslaw; 900 pounds of fruit salad; 5,000 bags of chips; and 5,000 cans of iced tea.
According to the owners of Glowbal, Emad Yacoub and Shannon Bosa Yacoub, in a recent statement to the press, “This will be our third year partnering with UGM; and every year we have hundreds of restaurant staff, business colleagues and friends volunteer their time. They always come back raving about the experience and how it wasn’t just fun, it was enriching. We are grateful for the amazing response from our recent volunteer call-out to assist with next month’s BBQ and look forward to welcoming members of the Vancouver community who are aligned in our passion to promote positive change.”
Manson Osmond, VP Marketing & Operations for Vision, agrees. “There’s something really profound about the entire experience,”
