St. Paul's Hospital light campaign raises more than $2.3 million
Vancouver, January 12, 2007 — Support from the community enabled St. Paul's Hospital Foundation to raise more than $2 million during the recent Lights of Hope campaign. By the time the donated light display was turned off for the last time January 5, the fundraising total had reached a record $2,329,092.
The distinctive display that graces the front of the hospital each year is built by volunteers using donated products notes Foundation executive director Jane Adams.
“This important gift means that the money we receive during the Lights of Hope fundraising campaign can be used inside the hospital,” she says. “In 2006, our generous community and corporate donors contributed more than ever. We thank them for their support and look forward with anticipation to Lights of Hope 2007, our 10th anniversary for this special campaign.”
Presenting sponsors for 2006 were the Cardiac Surgeons, Ali Mawji & Family and Scotiabank.
Planning is already underway for the landmark 10th anniversary Lights of Hope 2007 campaign. If you or your company would like to take part, please call 604-682-8206 or visit www.helpstpauls.com
