More than 440 of BC’s South Asian philanthropic, business and community leaders came together tonight to raise $742,495 for BC Children’s Hospital at the 11th Annual A Night of Miracles (ANOM) Gala. Guests in attendance represented the largest turnout in this event’s history. Since the gala’s inception, the South Asian community has cumulatively raised $6.1 million, demonstrating its long-standing commitment to providing the best health care imaginable to kids across the province.
Funds from this year's gala will help transform pediatric diabetes care across the province. Through this critical support, more kids across BC with type 1 diabetes—a lifelong, serious disease with the potential for devastating complications—will be able to access the expert care and resources they need to control their condition through virtual care, telehealth and collaborations with local health care providers. This level of expert care and support, delivered to all corners of the province, will help improve health outcomes for these kids—in particular for those who don’t live close by to the specialized care provided by BC Children’s.
The funds raised will also support efforts to educate families on using the latest diabetes management technologies that will ease the daily burdens of living with the disease, and research initiatives that will help fuel life-changing discoveries.
"I am deeply grateful for the support that this event’s guests and partners have raised to help advance care at BC Children’s for kids and families who need it most."
— Teri Nicholas, President and CEO, BC Children's Hospital Foundation
