The BC Lions Football Club was disappointed to announce that the 17th annual Orange Helmet Awards (OHA), one of Vancouver’s signature fundraising events, was cancelled due to COVID-19.
Since its inception in 2004, OHA is an annual salute to amateur football in British Columbia that honours the provincial champions at all levels as well as recognizes hardworking coaches and volunteers. We wish to still show our respect for these teams and individuals. We look forward to recognizing the award winners in our upcoming 2021 season.
By supporting the OHA auction, you are helping grow the game of football in BC, which also promotes and teaches physical activity, leadership, teamwork and discipline. The silent auction will proceed in order to ensure amateur football continues to receive funding. The BC Lions Football Club believes that moving the auction online will allow for a larger audience to bid on items, ultimately raising more funds for amateur football organizations in BC.
Although the event was unable to proceed this year, we are moving forward with the silent auction portion of the event, with all proceeds benefiting the amateur football community in BC. By supporting the OHA auction, you are helping grow the game of football in BC, which also promotes and teaches physical activity, leadership, teamwork and discipline. The auction begins on Monday, September 21st at 10am and closes on Wednesday, September 30th at 5:00pm.
