VANCOUVER BC­ (June 21, 2013) – De Dutch, a beloved Canadian restaurant chain with 23 locations across Western Canada, is celebrating Canada Day with Front Row at the Fireworks, a fundraising initiative benefitting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s BC Yukon Chapter.

Through their website, nine waterfront tables at De Dutch’s Burrard Landing location at the Vancouver Convention Centre will be auctioned off with the starting bids at $200 for a table of two or $400 for a table of four. Winning bidders will enjoy the best seats for the annual Canada Day Burrard Inlet Fireworks from 9 pm to 11 pm, with a $20 food and beverage voucher from De Dutch included in the bid price.

"We are very excited to be partnering with De Dutch on what will be a spectacular night of fireworks," states Patricia Chu, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – BC/Yukon Region. "This promises to be a fun community event, not to mention a great opportunity to help breast cancer research."

The fireworks show will take place on the evening of July 1st, 2013, with an estimated 250,000 Canadians expected to attend the Burrard Landing festivities.
