Fraser Valley Grand Gala supports health care

Health Care Foundation hosts event on Nov. 15

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) hosts its inaugural Fraser Valley Grand Gala on Friday, Nov. 15.

The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel, raising funds for Fraser Health equipment and programs, including at Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

The Gatsby-themed event will bring together donors, supporters, public officials and community leaders from across the eastern Fraser Valley.

The evening includes live and silent auctions, dinner and live entertainment. The master of ceremonies will be Trevor McDonald.

“We are delighted to come together for a truly grand affair,” said Liz Harris, FVHCF executive director.

“As a foundation, we are committed to the improvement of health care in all our communities in the eastern Fraser Valley. This is dependent on fundraising, and what better way to do it than attending the Grand Gala evening supporting our local hospitals.”

Tickets are available online at fvhcf.ca. For information, tickets or sponsorship, call the office at 1-877-661-0314.
