The 2nd Annual LGH Community Cares Event
- February 11, 2017
6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Members of the Asian community of the North Shore showed their love for the work of Lions Gate Hospital Foundation (LGHF) by raising $120,000 (net) at the 2nd Annual LGH Community Cares Gala. Close to 200 guests attended the evening which was held on Chinese Valentine’s Day, on Saturday, February 11, at Capilano Golf and Country Club in West Vancouver.
The evening was organized by the Foundation’s Asian Advisory Committee and hosted by Omni TV anchor Karen So. Guests were welcomed by the Collingwood Jazz Trio and entertained with a special performance by Vancouver Grand Ensemble.
Thanks to the generosity and support of local businesses who donated gifts and services for the silent auction, event sponsors and guests, the gala raised a record $120,000, topping last year’s total by almost $20,000.
Proceeds raised from the evening will be directed to the North Shore Hospice Expansion Campaign which will turn the hospice into a palliative care hub for patients and their families. With a new palliative care outpatient service and a permanent home for the Every Day Counts support program, the hub will be the first facility of its kind in British Columbia.
“Lions Gate Hospital is the hospital for everyone who calls the North Shore home and we are delighted that the Asian community has joined the LGH family of supporters,” says Pierre Lebel, Chair of the Board for Lions Gate Hospital Foundation. “The LGH Community Cares Gala is only in its second year but the appreciation and support for Lions Gate really shone through during the evening and we look forward to watching the event grow and thrive.”
