Thank you to our incredible mining community and pie-ees for supporting the first ever Pie Throw event this past May. This year, we raised $1,462,179 for the Cellular and Regenerative Medicine Centre (CRMC) at BC Children’s Hospital! It’s because of your generosity and support that we are able to continue helping the kids who need it most in our province.

The annual Pie Throw is back! Join us again as Mining for Miracles embarks on a new journey with its first-ever Pie Throw: Virtual Edition.

Pie Throw is the B.C. mining industry’s signature event in support of BC kids. Each year, leaders from across the industry are paired in a friendly fundraising competition. Whoever raises the most funds earns the right to publicly pie their competitor, with their family, friends and business networks bearing witness. Most years, Pie Throw raises well in excess of $1 million for BC Children’s.

This year, we are excited at the prospect of reaching an even broader audience with a virtual campaign, as Pie Throw has previously been a live public event on the north plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery. The pre-taped videos of the pie throws will be streamed online over three excitement-building days from Tuesday, May 25 to Thursday, May 27 before the grand fundraising total is announced.

FOLLOW Buddy the Miner on Facebook and Twitter, and Mining for Miracles on LinkedIn where we will be sharing all content and promotional pieces related to the virtual event.

100% of funds raised go to support BC Children’s Hospital – there is no overhead. In 2021, we are raising funds for the Cellular and Regenerative Medicine Centre (CRMC) as part of our three-year, $3.385 million commitment. Learn more about the CRMC funding initiative.
