​Vancouver Metropolitan Lions Club has been dedicated to supporting local health care and Richmond Hospital Foundation for nearly two decades.

Their 12th charity concert took place on September 25, 2020 on the roof top of Sun Wah Centre in support of the new Yurkovich Family Pavilion (Acute Care Tower) at Richmond Hospital. The featured entertainment included singer May Ho (current member & past president of Vancouver Metropolitan Lions Club), with special guest Sandra Lang.

“Vancouver Metropolitan Lions Club is honoured to be a pioneer, organizing our first online charity concert. Having this Lions’ Project (charity concert) during the pandemic, we were able to witness the philanthropic hearts of countless families being ignited after the storm, together supporting health care in Richmond,” says May Ho.

Vancouver Metropolitan Lions Club has committed to raising $50,000 in 5 years towards the new Yurkovich Family Pavilion. Since 2001, the club has raised over $240,000 for Richmond Hospital Foundation.

“We are grateful for Vancouver Lions Club’s philanthropic leadership,” says Natalie Meixner, President and CEO, Richmond Hospital Foundation. “Their generosity and dedication to building a better and healthier future for Richmond is an inspiration for our community.”
