Event Details

Please come join us for our annual Darkness Into Light Quiz night, where we will be raising much needed funds, and more importantly, awareness, around suicide prevention and mental Health. All proceeds are divided equally between Pieta House and our partner charity here in Vancouver - The Kettle Society. 

A huge thank you for Donnellans for hosting our quiz night here for the second year in a row. We will have some brilliant quiz and raffle prizes to give away; live music once the quiz is over and once again, we will have the wonderful, yet suprisingly strict quiz master, Marie Gill

This year, we will have teams of 6 and we are selling single tickets to each attendee - this way, if you do not have a full team, we can add you to an existing team. For those of you with a team, we are asking you to please buy individual tickets and then email us at darknessintolightvancouver@gmail.com with your a list of names of those on your team - this will help us hugely on the night!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!!

If you are not familiar with Darkness Into Light Vancouver, here is a little more information:

Darkness Into Light Vancouver is a very special morning that involves a 5km walk which begins at 4.45am, where participants walk from darkness into the morning light all in the name of mental health awareness and suicide prevention.

 

This beautiful event began as a means of fundraising for Pieta House and raising awareness around mental health issues in Ireland. Pieta House is an Irish based charity that provides life saving support to people in suicidal distress or engaging in self-harm. Pieta House also provides suicide bereavement counselling. All of these services are provided completely free of charge. This service was the first of its' kind in Ireland when it opened its' doors in Dublin in 2006. Now, in 2019, Pieta House now has 12 centres around the country.

The very first Darkness Into Light was held in 2009 in the Phoenix Park with 400 walkers. In 2018, over 200,000 people walked at dawn, together in hope over 28 countries across the world. 

Each Darkness Into Light outside of Ireland partner with a local mental health charity and the funds raised are divided equally between Pieta House and the chosen partner charity.

This year, DIL Vancouver are proud to be partnering with a Vancouver based mental health charity; The Kettle Society. The Kettle Society supports people living with mental illness to lead healthier lives by providing housing, employment, advocacy and support services; raising awareness of mental health issues and promoting the inclusion of people living with mental illness in all aspects of society.
