Our 1st Ever True Blue Virtual Moonlight Gala Raises over $224,000 Net for Delta Hospital

November 10, 2020

 

On Saturday, November 7th, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation hosted their 1st ever True Blue Virtual Moonlight Gala and raised an impressive $224,000 Net in support of Delta Hospital’s critical equipment needs including for their surgical department which has been greatly impacted by COVID-19.

 

This online fundraiser brought the community together virtually for a 100-item auction, 50/50 draw, and prizes that culminated in a Livestream Program. The program was, once again, hosted by Sportsnet 650 radio personality James Cybulski with co-host Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, DHCHF.

 

The Foundation wants to thank this year’s sponsors including Livestream Sponsor - Ocean Trailer and Royal Blue Sponsor - Port of Vancouver, auction donors and the 243 participants for all their support of Delta Hospital.  

 

“We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support of our first ever Virtual Gala,” says Lisa Hoglund, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. “Thank you to our generous community for continuing to be there for Delta Hospital through this difficult year. Special thanks go out to the Gala Committee headed by chair, Don Sangster, all the talented individuals who helped with our livestream entertainment and the Foundation team for all their hard work as we moved our Moonlight Gala online.”
