Wine Lovers 2022 a Huge Success for Northern Simulation Program


A SOLD OUT crowd at the Coast Prince George by APA’s annual Wine Lovers Dinner enjoyed a delicious tour of Spain, featuring wines form the region. The generosity of the community was overwhelming, including donations of various items for both the live and silent auction, which helped the event far surpass its goal. In total, the evening raised over $100,000 dollars in support of Northern Simulation Program equipment. 

Funding this year went towards Sim Man 3G Plus, the fifth addition to the Sim Family, three of which were previously funded through this event. The Northern Simulation program plays a crucial role in training, certifying, and coaching both student and front-line healthcare professionals locally and throughout the North. Training individually or in a team, learners can practice critical skills such as decision-making, team communication, and patient care, encountering complex medical cases all in a risk-free environment. 

“We are so proud of our relationship with Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation,” said Coast Prince George General Manager Arun Mutalik. “The impact they have both in our community, and throughout the North, is felt by so many of our friends and family. The evening allowed us to highlight the talents of our team, while giving back to the community, which we are so grateful to be a part of. Together, with our media partners Jim Pattison Media, we are thrilled with the impact the evening will have throughout Northern BC.”

“Providing state of the art equipment for both learning and treatment is essential for our front-line healthcare professionals, and something we are proud to support” said Aimee Cassie, CEO, Spirit of the North healthcare Foundation. “The Coast Prince George Hotel by APA, along with our media partners, Pattison Media, consistently go above and beyond to support healthcare in the North. So much has been accomplished in the North thanks to Wine Lovers, and this year, once again, will have a lasting impact in our Northern communities.”

Plans are already underway for 2023– If you missed it this year, mark your calendars for September 22nd, 2023. Join us for an unforgettable evening in support of better health outcomes for patients in the North.
