Richmond Hospital Foundation’s 16th Starlight Gala broke a new fundraising record with more than $529,000 in net proceeds.

Saturday, October 18, 2014

River Rock Casino Resort & Show Theatre

5:00pm - midnight

“We truly have a compassionate and caring community of donors and sponsors, whose leadership and generosity are matched by their deep commitment to improve local health care in Richmond,” said Natalie Meixner, President & CEO of Richmond Hospital Foundation. “We all value having the very best health care close to home for ourselves and our loved ones. Funds raised from the evening will benefit patients and their families to help provide expert care right here at home.”

The event featured moving performances by multi-platinum, Juno and Canadian Country Music Award winning singer-songwriter, Johnny Reid, who recounted touching personal stories and spoke about the value of health care.

Guests of the Starlight Gala also experienced the story of Amrik and Rachel Leihl, whose twins, Jasmine and Justin, were born at Richmond Hospital’s Birth Centre. Baby Jasmine had developed a serious feeding disorder and was treated by Dr. Erik Swartz, Head, Pediatrics, Richmond Hospital, who continues to treat and monitor the twins monthly.

The Milan and Maureen Ilich family were honoured at the event with the Richmond Hospital Foundation Leadership Award for their model leadership, generous contributions and the inspiration they provide to others.

The focus of this year’s Leadership Challenge raised funds for Richmond Hospital Foundation’s Children Campaign to fund urgently needed Birth Centre equipment and a new Pediatric Short Stay Unit to provide new facilities to care for children at Richmond Hospital.

Since 1999, the Starlight Gala has raised over $3.7 million to improve patient care and health care services in our community and at Richmond Hospital.
