Mandarin Miracle Weekend Telethon
This fundraising initiative, broadcast on LS Times TV and Shaw Cable, is part of the Chinese-Canadian Miracle Weekend. The objective is to educate the Mandarin community on the work at Children's Hospital and how their support benefits young British Columbians, and to inspire support. This two-hour educational and entertaining program features inspiring patient vignettes, hospital family interviews and will highlight different community supporters.
This past year, the 2012 Mandarin Miracle Weekend celebrated its success with a fundraising dinner at Shiang Garden Seafood Restaurant. With the generosity of sponsors and donors and the tireless supports of volunteers, $123,888 was raised towards the Operation Superhero Campaign for the construction of an oncology inpatient unit at the new Children’s Hospital.
