Little Hearts Gala helps Abbotsford Regional Hospital

Fundraiser to take place on Saturday, Oct. 3

The Little Hearts Gala being held Saturday

The Little Hearts Gala returns for its third year on Saturday, Oct. 3, raising funds for Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

Little Hearts is the brainchild of organizer Jessica Bugra of Abbotsford. It is an evening of entertainment, dinner and dancing held at the Bollywood Banquet Hall in Surrey.

Bugra started the event in 2013 and donated the proceeds to a children’s charity.

In 2014, she chose Abbotsford Regional Hospital through the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation as the beneficiary.

Last year’s gala drew 500 people and raised $20,000 for the pediatric unit and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of the hospital.

The funds were used to purchase a breast pump, trolley and waterless milk warmer  and a Giraffe Blue Spot Phototherapy System to treat babies suffering from jaundice.

This year’s event will raise funds in support of medical imaging, pediatrics and the NICU at Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

Tickets are $40 ($20 for children 15 and under) which includes appetizers, an Indian buffet, a dessert table, a photo booth, entertainment, dancing, prizes and more.

Tickets can be purchased at the foundation office at the hospital or by contacting Jessica at littlehearts.gala@gmail.com or 604-866-8323.
