The TELUS Night of a Thousand Stars gala celebrates the passion and dedication of our highly skilled medical teams, and the incredible generosity and vision of the donors who support them.
This exciting evening of culinary delights, unique entertainment, and inspiring stories will support the Most Urgent Needs fund at VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. Join us as we celebrate the power of philanthropy.
Venue: Parq Vancouver, 39 Smithe Street, Vancouver
One of the night’s highlights includes a presentation of the prestigious VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation Leadership Award to an individual, family, or corporate supporter in our community for their exemplary philanthropic leadership in advancing health care for all British Columbians. Past recipients include the Ilich Family, Syd and Joanne Belzberg, and Robert and Lily Lee.
This past November, our black-tie event brought together 900 guests representing leading BC businesses, organizations, and philanthropists for an evening of relationship building, fine dining and an exciting live and silent auction. We raised over $5.95 million, which will fund a vital new surgical robot, advance patient care, purchase urgently needed equipment, and fund innovative new research.
Thank you to our 2017 sponsors
