About Us

The Dahlia Society is a Victoria, British Columbia not-for-profit organization that provides support to local community programs, organizations and families in need. We strive to make our community a better place to live by helping those who need it most, when they need it the most.

The Society holds several signature events each year, including Canstruction Victoria and Think Pink!, supporting The Mustard Seed and local breast cancer initiatives respectively. Every dollar raised through the Society’s innovative fundraising efforts will stay local.

The Dahlia Society was created by Christopher Mavrikos, who has personally raised more than $150,000 for breast cancer research, advocacy and support. Christopher dedicates his philanthropic work to his mom Lynn, who passed away after a long battle with breast cancer in 1997 at only 38 years-old. Lynn’s favourite flowers were dahlias and Christopher dedicates the creation of The Dahlia Society to his mom with the aim of carrying on her passions for helping those in need and creating a thriving, healthy community.
