DHF to honour Delta Agricultural Society at the 2015 Moonlight Gala

September 24, 2015

Delta Hospital Foundation is excited to announce that on Saturday, November 7th at the 17th Annual Moonlight Gala, the Delta Agricultural Society will be honoured for their services to the community. 

This acknowledgement, presented by Tribute Sponsor Port Metro Vancouver, will recognize the Delta Agricultural Society for the significant contributions, commitment and generosity to both leadership and philanthropy that they have demonstrated towards Delta Hospital and within the community.  

“Our members are proud Delta residents, many of whom come from generations of farming families,” says Peter Guichon, President of the Delta Agricultural Society. “The hospital plays an important role in our community, and many of us have relied on, and been touched by the care provided. We have been only too happy to support the Foundation over the years, and we’re honoured to receive this recognition.” 

Founded in 1888 by a group of local farmers, the Delta Agricultural Society was established to primarily assist in the improvement of farming practices, land cultivation, and livestock breeding in Delta.  

The Society has since become a major supporter of the wider Delta community, donating many millions of dollars to community groups, facilities and projects. 

“The Delta Agricultural Society is such a big part of the rich history that we have here in Delta. They have supported and shaped our community, cultivating the culture of leadership and philanthropy that makes Delta so special,” says Veronica Carroll, Executive Director of the Delta Hospital Foundation. “With so many community members attending Gala, it is the perfect opportunity for us all to acknowledge the Delta Agricultural Society for their generosity. We look forward to seeing everyone come out in support on the night!” 

The 17th Annual Moonlight Gala presented by MK Delta Lands Group, will be the first major event to be hosted at the brand new Tsawwassen Springs. The venue will be transformed into a Whimsical Wonderland for a fantastic night of entertainment in support of Delta Hospital.
