​Building Our Future Together at the 201​9 Starlight Gala presented by Donald's Fine Foods

The Starlight Gala presented by Donald's Fine Foods is Richmond Hospital Foundation's signature black tie gala and the most prestigious fundraiser in the city. With an attendance of over 450 guests, the ​event raised $738,000 net in 2018 - and more than $6 million since its inception. Help us celebrate, and continue to raise the much needed funds to enable our health care professionals to provide the best care close to home. 

The Starlight Gala has a strong profile in the community and is an event anticipated by many. Each year, philanthropists and corporate and community leaders from the Lower Mainland come together to help Richmond Hospital deliver outstanding health care. We are incredibly privileged to have the growing support of so many individuals and organizations who have stepped forward to make a difference for patients and families in our community.

Our inspirational evening will be held at the River Rock Casino Resort & Show Theatre in Richmond on Saturday, October 19, 2019. It will feature a marvelous cocktail reception and dinner, exciting auctions and games, an inspiring story about health care, and our annual Leadership Challenge to raise funds for much needed health care services for our community. 

For over 30 years, Richmond Hospital Foundation has raised over $80 million to help purchase vital medical equipment, improve patient care services and upgrade facilities at Richmond Hospital and our community of care in Richmond.

2019 Starlight Gala Features

Fall is fast approaching and we would like to share with you some event highlights. Our evening will feature a spectacular performance from Award winning, Multi-Platinum selling, Toronto based crooner, Matt Dusk. Playing homage to his hero Frank Sinatra, Dusk will transport us to an era of glamour and jazz with his cool and classy Rat Pack energy. Have a sneak peek of his performance below!

This year, we’re excited to present two special awards.  The Leadership Award will honour the Greczmiel family, represented by sisters Michele Cupit and Lisa Greczmiel, acknowledging their family’s generous philanthropic spirit.  We will also present the Community Cares Award to Peterson and Townline, who have both been significant ambassadors for the ACT NOW campaign.
