On October 22, 2021, a passionate philanthropic community dedicated to the transformation of health care in BC raised an incredible $1 million at VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation’s 25th Night of a Thousand Stars gala, presented by B2 Gold Corp.

In person and at home, hundreds of people from across BC celebrated our health care stars and raised vital funds to support the future of BC’s health care system.

These gifts fund groundbreaking research, recruit and train world-class health care workers, and equip them with the tools they need to save and improve lives. This will directly impact the future of health care at our hospitals and health care centres, creating a healthier tomorrow for all British Columbians.

“This year we are especially grateful to our community of supporters who have come together to celebrate our health care heroes and contribute to advancing the best health care in British Columbia.”
– Angela Chapman, President & CEO, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation

We were honoured to have special guest Dr. Bonnie Henry present the 2021 Leadership Award to BC’s health care workers. And, we thank VGH nurse and grateful patient Jaclyn Robinson for sharing her inspirational story

“The community not only opened their wallets and gave generously to support the people, places and programs that make for the best health care in BC, they opened their hearts to let our medical stars know that we are truly grateful for the personal sacrifices and service they have rendered throughout this pandemic,” says Angela.

From each of us at VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, thank you.
