An entrepreneur and philanthropist who has given to Place des Arts in the past is again challenging Tri-City residents to match his fundraising.

Last week, Jack Gin announced he would match any contributions made to support the Coquitlam art centre’s ArtReach summer camp.

The camp is offered for free to kids in grades 1 to 5 — with families in financial need — who want arts education.

Gin is asking residents, businesses and groups to step forward to bring in $10,000 to run the camp for 2019 and ’20.

“We are excited and grateful to benefit from the generous, ongoing support of the Jack Gin Family Foundation, held at Vancouver Foundation,” said Joan McCauley, Place des Arts executive director, in a news release. “Thanks to thoughtful and engaged donors like Jack, we can make a meaningful impact on children’s lives through this type of accessible arts program.”
