The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) was the recipient of a $20,000 donation on Nov. 3 in support of the pediatric and neonatal intensive care units at Abbotsford Regional Hospital (AHR).

The funds were raised Oct. 3 at the second annual Little Hearts Gala at the Bollywood Banquet Hall in Surrey. The event was attended by more than 500 people.

The donation will be used to purchase a breast pump, trolley and waterless milk warmer for each of the hospital units, and a Giraffe Blue Spot phototherapy system to treat babies suffering from jaundice.

Plans are already underway for the 2015 Little Hearts Gala. For more information or to get involved, contact
