Zephyr's Hockey present Delta Hospital Foundation with Donation

Delta – In addition to generous gifts from individuals this past holiday season, Delta Hospital Foundation received several gifts through community held events, collectively raising $6,500 for Delta Hospital.

Local men’s hockey team, Ladner Zephyrs, held their Annual Christmas Charity Classic, on December 30th, raising over $3,000 which broke the previous year’s fundraising record of $2,300! This charity event keeps gaining momentum and in four years it has raised $9,000 for Delta Hospital. “Christmas is a time of giving, and a time to give back to this community we love,” say Zephyr fundraising organizer Chad Taylor. “This event is growing each year and becoming quite the tradition.”

The new Milestone’s restaurant in Tsawwassen Mills raised $2300 for Delta Hospital Foundation at their friends and family ‘soft opening’ by donating all tips and beverage sales (beer was courtesy of our friends at Four Winds Brewery) from that evening.   

On the first anniversary of the passing of beloved husband, father and grandfather, Douglas Bruce McGarvie on December 24th, 2015, his daughter, Dawn Williams and his wife, Bertha, presented Delta Hospital Foundation with a donation of almost $1,200 raised at a Pancake breakfast held in his honour. Dawn and her mother are working towards making this event an annual one in order that some good come to the community out of the memory of their late father and husband.

Throughout the year, Delta community members organize and execute many different events to raise funds for Delta Hospital Foundation. “While these particular events demonstrate the diversity of people and their interests across our community,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital Foundation, “they also show they share a common thread; they all value the importance of Delta Hospital in their community and do their part to help keep it strong.”  

From barbecues to golf tournaments, from concerts to lemonade stands; there are many ways to creatively raise funds for Delta Hospital.
