BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund
All donations collected at the event, and partial proceeds from the sale of tickets for the train, go to the Burn Fund to help burn survivors and their families. As Bright Nights is one of its major fundraisers, the Burn Fund accepts donations at the front gate and suggests a minimum donation of $4.
Bright Nights has raised over $1.5 million for the Burn Fund. This achievement is supported by more than 500 off-duty professional fire fighters from the Lower Mainland and around BC who donate their time to set up, operate and take down the annual display.
The BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund is a registered charity established in 1978 by the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Association. Over 3,800 professional fire fighters throughout British Columbia dedicate their time and skills to help burn survivors in the province.
