Ribfest supports the Esquimalt Firefighters Charitable Foundation and partners with SD61 with a goal of putting in a turf field facility at Esquimalt High School. https://www.esquimaltribfest.com/es-whoy-malth-community-field-collaboration/
Special thanks to these sponsors of the Esquimalt Ribfest.
Tom is a long time Esquimalt resident and former Esquimalt Police/Fire member who served his community throughout a long and distinguished career. Tom was a member of the VCPU in 2003 during the police amalgamation of Victoria and Esquimalt. Tom's dedication to supporting youth sports and giving back to his community is second to none.
His efforts as a founding member of Rock Solid and the WITS Program have garnered national recognition and focusses on preventing youth violence and anti-bullying. https://witsprogram.ca/about-us/
Plan to visit Esquimalt Ribfest for great food and to support these great causes. On Saturday night hear the headliner band "Bad Moon Riders" and enjoy recognition efforts for frontline nurses and Emma Entzminger, from Canada's Bronze Medal Softball Team.
