​RICHMOND COMMUNITY UNITES STRONGER THAN EVER TO CHAMPION LOCAL HEALTH CARE AT ANNUAL STARLIGHT GALA

​ 

Event raises $688,000 (net) as community urged to seek Provincial funding commitment for new Acute Care Tower

Donors, sponsors and community leaders at the annual Richmond Hospital Foundation Starlight Gala demonstrated their unwavering leadership to help raise funds and champion high quality local health care in Richmond.

As part of the fundraising at the event, held Saturday, October 14, donors for the “Leadership Challenge” portion of the evening responded generously and enthusiastically to help purchase a brand new state-of-the-art nuclear medicine scanner to improve medical imaging for cardiac and cancer-related illnesses at Richmond Hospital, as well as help purchase four new state-of-the-art defibrillators to help patients who go into cardiopulmonary arrest and require emergency resuscitation in order to survive.

The Starlight Gala’s sold-out crowd included 400 guests and more than 200 doctors, nurses and other health care professionals who enjoyed an unparalleled performance by the multi-platinum, Juno award-winning vocal group,The Tenors, along with special performances by Kelly Levesque. Guests were deeply moved and spellbound as The Tenors and Kelly showcased their charm and diverse vocal styles while speaking of their own experiences of receiving compassionate care at Richmond Hospital in years past, reminding everyone how important health care is to us all.
