Friday, December 6, 2013 is the 27th annual CBC British Columbia Open House and Food Bank Day. We are excited to celebrate the incredible and continuing generosity of our CBC audience and family. Millions of dollars have been raised over the years, and hundreds of thousands of British Columbians, who need the services of food banks, have benefited from our annual event.

As it is our tradition, we are inviting the public to come to our Open House at the CBC Broadcast Centre in downtown Vancouver to see how we make radio, television and digital programming. 

Doors at CBC Vancouver's Broadcast Centre open at 5:30 am. with Rick Cluff and The Early Edition in Studio 700. From 8 am. to 6 pm. you can tour CBC Vancouver's integrated newsroom and meet your favourite CBC on air personalities and reporters including Gloria Macarenko, Tony Parsons, Stephen Quinn and Sheryl MacKay. Some of our network personalities are also joining us including George StroumboulopoulosSuhana MeharchandDavid Chilton, and the stars of Arctic Air, Murdock Mysteries, Marketplaceand many more!

New to the event this year is a special Canada Lives Here movie, Bo and Huckle Cat, photos with Santa and tours of the CBC Canada House in preparation for Sochi 2014.

All CBC BC radio local and regional shows are broadcasting special programs to help inspire you to donate. You can make a contribution to the Food Bank of your choice at the Open House, online anytime or call our pledge lines 1-866-226-4642 or 604-662-6470 on Friday, December 6, 2013.
