The Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation’s 25th Annual Festival of Trees was a huge success! Celebrating this journey with so many who continue to support healthcare in the North didn’t disappoint, with many coming back from far away to celebrate this milestone, the ten-day event was a huge draw for the community as a whole. Although final numbers are still being looked at, close to $700,000 in total raised. This will go a long way to fund the much needed Ortho Video O.R. Towers that UHNBC had identified as a need. Thank you for taking the opportunity to celebrate these 25 years with you!
This year saw many of our classic events sold out well in advance, such as the Seniors’ Tea, Seniors’ Luncheon and Fashion Show. All three of those sold out in record time, and will be returning in 2019! New events, such as the Namaste to Start your Day- Morning Yoga, was also very well received, as well as our collaboration with the City of Prince George for the fireworks along with their civic light up. It was a year to behold!
“Each year brings a bigger sense of accomplishment along with a bigger responsibility to see that our donors and supporters wishes for better healthcare are honoured.” said Judy Neiser, CEO for Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. “We are so truly grateful for the support we receive and feel it is a privilege to see these dollars at work in the community to help create better health outcomes for patients in the North. Each donation no matter how big or small collectively is making an impact.”
As always we want to thank our sponsors, donors, designers, corporate partners and the many volunteers who helped make this possible. We truly could not have done it without you!
For those of you that would like to get involved next year, we would be grateful for your involvement, and details can be found at the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation office in the atrium of the University Hospital!
Thank you so much for such a great year, and we hope to see you Nov. 22-December 1, 2019, for our 26th Annual Festival of Trees “Home for the Holidays”!
