Vancouver Diamond Lions Installation Gala Raises Over $8,000 for the Richmond Hospital Acute Care Tower


The Vancouver Diamond Lions Club has generously donated over $8,000 to Richmond Hospital Foundation in support of a new Acute Care Tower in Richmond through their 13th annual installation and charity dinner.

Over the past 10 years, the Vancouver Diamond Lions Club has been a supporter of the Richmond Hospital Foundation and has raised over $300,000 towards patient care. Inspired by their belief that health care is a priority and will be a need for most people for years to come, the Vancouver Diamond Lions Club is dedicated to bringing high quality health care services to patients in the community of Richmond.

Members of the Vancouver Diamond Lions Club presented the cheque to Endora Fan (back row, third from left), Senior Development Manager, Richmond Hospital Foundation, and Verna Yu (back row, second from right), Associate Director of Special Events, Richmond Hospital Foundation.

Richmond Hospital Foundation

For over 30 years, Richmond Hospital Foundation has raised over $100 million to help fund vital medical equipment, improvements in patient care services and upgraded facilities. Our goal is to inspire joyful giving within our community to build a better and healthier future for Richmond.

ACT NOW Campaign

Richmond Hospital urgently needs a new Acute Care Tower to replace the original hospital tower, which is more than 50 years old, seismically unstable and obsolete with severely deficient infrastructure unable to meet the needs of Richmond’s dramatically growing and aging population. More in-patient beds, larger operating rooms and a “future-ready” design will be just some of the many innovative features in the tower. Richmond Hospital Foundation’s goal with its ACT NOW campaign is to inspire giving to raise at least $50 million in philanthropic commitments to help fund a new Acute Care Tower at Richmond Hospital.
