There are many reasons why people give to charity. For Cory and Sandy Saran of Forge Properties, it’s a personal connection to Sources’ Infant Development Program (IDP) that inspired them to support Sources’ upcoming 21st annual fundraising Gala (Sources Super Gala) with a $10,000 sponsorship.
“Our relationship with Sources began eight years ago when our daughter was born,” Cory said. “Sources followed our family for a while through IDP and we saw firsthand how committed the Sources team is to the betterment of our community. From that point on we were hooked, and thought if we ever had the opportunity in the future to give back to this organization that has given so much to us, we would. We can’t put a dollar tag on what it is that they’ve done for us and our family. This sponsorship is really about us trying to find our own kind of humble way to give back to Sources.”
The Sarans own Forge Properties, a real estate development company focused in South Surrey and White Rock – “Our own backyard,” Cory said. “Community building is one of our core beliefs and we feel like you should support the area you grow in. This sponsorship is from Forge Properties, but really a story of family at the heart of it.”
“This is our first year introducing the platinum-level sponsorship and we are thankful to Cory and Sandy for becoming one of our first ever platinum sponsors,” Sources CEO David Young said. “That they have a personal connection to one of our programs makes this a unique and meaningful donation.”
The Gala is the Sources Foundation’s largest fundraiser and will take place April 9, 2016 at Hazelmere Golf & Tennis Club.
