The Prince George Community Foundation has decided to cancel this year’s Citizen of the Year gala.

“It is with heavy hearts that the Prince George Community Foundation has decided to cancel the Citizen of the Year gala for 2020,” said Alain LeFebvre, President, Prince George Community Foundation. “Due to COVID-19 and restrictions set out by the Provincial Health Authority for social distancing, the foundation believes the best way to limit the spread is to limit social gatherings. 
 
“Although we did consider a virtual event like our successful Stay at Home Gala, we believe that this diminishes the feel and honour of being recognized in front of 200+ of our honourees’ peers, families and friends cheering them on. We are grateful to everyone who nominated someone this year and appreciate all of the volunteerism and philanthropy they are doing in our community.”
