Thank you for helping us raise $460,000 to help change lives of patients in Richmond

Richmond Hospital Foundation’s 15th Annual Starlight Gala was the most successful Gala to date, raising a record-breaking amount of over $460,000 in net proceeds.

On October 19th, a sold out crowd of 470 guests spent a spectacular evening at the annual fundraiser gala held at River Rock Casino Resort & Show Theatre. The event featured live entertainment by Juno Award winning singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk, with performances by the Richmond Orchestra.

“We are so honoured to be able to bring in an international talent and a great humanitarian. We’re thrilled Chantal Kreviazuk came to visit Richmond Hospital before the event,” said Natalie Meixner, President & CEO of Richmond Hospital Foundation. “She really understands the human impact of health care.” Chantal Kreviazuk toured the mental health unit, the cancer care clinic, and the birth centre at Richmond Hospital on Friday to visit patients and brighten up their day

Guests of the Starlight Gala also experienced the story of patient John Roberts’ inspiring journey following his surgery to remove a cancerous tumour in his kidney. Today, the Richmond resident, husband, and father of five is healthy and active again, thanks to contributions made by donors to purchase life-saving equipment.

Since 1999, the Starlight Gala has raised over $3-million to improve patient care and health care services in our community and at Richmond Hospital.
