They deserve all our thanks
"When I think of our large family of events, what always impresses me is the creativity and diversity you demonstrate in your fundraising initiatives for the hospital.” - Kim Fraser, Vice President, Marketing, Communications & Community Relations
On February 7, 2019, our large family gathered in the P.K. Subban Atrium to celebrate their successes from the past year. In 2018, over $4 million was raised through more than 200 events of all kinds: sports tournaments, fundraising dinners, galas, fashion shows, a pop-up bar... and the list goes on! This evening was a great opportunity to thank the organizers who volunteer their time and work tirelessly to raise funds for the Hospital's most urgent needs.
In addition to mingling and exchanging innovative ideas with their peers, organizers were introduced to George Theodoropoulos of the Kids for Life Foundation, whose hard work and determination led to an event that raises nearly $70,000 per year. This grateful parent’s testimonial reminded us of the motivation behind our efforts: to give all children the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Thank you to wine sponsor Familia Torres for allowing us to toast another great year of fundraising.
