Schedule and Food Bank addresses
The times in bold brackets are the estimated (on-time) arrivals for vehicles participating for most/all of the Cruise. There is a chance that we have to leave the first location early in Burnaby if we hit the 50 car limit as advised by the Fraser Health Authority. I've given a timeslot of 1 1/2 hours (2 hours for the locations that requested so) for each food bank location to accept drop-offs. Anyone can drive-by during those timeslots and make a donation. The exact addresses are listed below, including Unit numbers etc. The Google link shows an overall route but does not display Unit numbers.

I will post the video to Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. I will contact each prize winner to arrange a prize drop-off the following week. 



To honour a man who meant so much to so many people (my dad) and to remember those who are special for many others.

To unite those who have one common interest and give to a cause that may make a difference in someone else’s life.


This event is for everyone, simple. No matter what you drive, no matter the circumstance, there is someone who has had an impact in your life that you may feel you need to say "thanks" by way of a simple donation or action.


This will mark ten years since my dad passed away. I want to keep his memory alive and wish to make this an annual event. I know there are many, many different organizations and events that give and support many, many different causes but there seems to be very little that make me feel I can remember and support what my dad went through. I wanted to do something I enjoy doing and support a cause specific to my desire and know there must be many other people around who wish to do the same. So I hope that this is the start of something new. We can all remember who we want, support who we want and gather together to drive!!

How to participate

***FORMAT FOR 2021***

New for the 2021 event is the drive-by and drop-off format for our local food banks. 10 local food banks for 10 years of the Cruise. There will be timeslots for 10 food banks from Richmond to Abbotsford. Bring along non-perishable food items to be dropped off at each food bank from the safety of your vehicle. That's right, you won't even have to leave your vehicle to make your donation drop-off at each food bank location. Drive-in, drop-off and move on to the next food bank location. A super simple and effective way to show our support for our local communities.
