It was a who’s who of Vancouver business leaders, movers and shakers last week at a special reception held by the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation to celebrate the grand finale of their long-reaching $200-million campaign for a new hospital. At an elegant stand-up reception, invited guests, major donors and VIPs marked the end of the fundraising road, and the beginning of a new future for BC kids everywhere in need of medial care. The evening included speeches by foundation leaders, special presentations and a live sing-along to “Walking on Sunshine” with a very special group of young patients/performers. Now, it’s time to break ground and start building for the future.
