Edgewater Casino Joins VIBC as Festival Sponsor


Gaming, dining, promotions, meetings—Edgewater Casino is Vancouver’s destination for all things entertainment. But did you know that Edgewater is also a major contributor to improving the health and well-being of our community? We learned this recently from Jennifer Fields-Bell, the Casino’s General Manager. In the interview below, Ms. Field-Bell describes the wonderful work they do to assist moms, families, and at-risk youth, and the unique employment opportunities they provide for those in need. 

We’re thrilled to welcome Edgewater Casino as one of our Festival sponsors this year. The work they do to recognize and encourage acceptance, inclusion, and diversity is right in line with VIBC’s own goals to enhance our city by creating opportunities for enjoyment, education, and inspiration for everyone.

Thanks again to Edgewater for their support, and to Jennifer Fields-Bell for so generously sharing her thoughts on our partnership. #BhangraLove!
