We’re celebrating National Volunteer Week from April 10–16, 2016.

Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers who help us raise funds and awareness throughout the year. Your dedication and commitment to helping BC’s children is extremely appreciated – without your support we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

We would like to recognize The Golden Girls Group and Gunni Bains for the completion of another successful year of fundraising for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. The ladies 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 Gold 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.

The Golden Girls Group are long-time and valued supporters of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. The group members work tirelessly to raise funds to improve the care of BC’s children. An annual fundraising dinner and dance, Ladies Shaam Kids De Naam, is held each September.

Thank you Golden Girls Group for your outstanding contributions to BC Children’s Hospital!
