South Asian Community
The South Asian community contributes a significant amount of funding each year to BC Children's Hospital through volunteerism, fundraising events such as our A Night of Miracles gala and community group fundraising initiatives.
One fundraising group that continues to be a valued supporter of BC Children's The Golden Girls Group. Spearheaded by Gunni Bains, the ladies group recently raised $78,249 for the purchase of a new operating table, which will provide an advanced apparatus to allow surgeons to do their very best work. The Golden Girls Group is currently raising funds to purchase a new monitor.
In 2014, The Golden Girls Groups successfully completed and celebrated a milestone of raising $1 million towards an operating room in the new Teck Acute Care Centre scheduled to open in 2017. The funds were raised in honour of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
An annual fundraising dinner and dance, Ladies Shaam Kids De Naam, is also held each September.
