Moby Dick restaurant raises $1,500 for hospital foundation

Moby Dick Seafood Restaurant has raised more than $1,500 for Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation by donating 50 cents from every guest cheque in March.

The 12th annual fundraiser was held in celebration of the restaurant’s grand opening in March 1975.

This year brought in $1,615, making the total the tradition has raised to be more than $17,000.

“Moby Dick’s is a wonderful White Rock institution,” foundation executive director Jackie Smith said in a release. “We are proud that the foundation has been the beneficiary of this tasty tradition.”

Proceeds from the initiative will benefit the Partners in Caring Campaign, which has completed four of five priority projects, including more acute care space, an MRI, a new maternity unit and the Centre for Active Living.

The remaining project is a new emergency department.

Details on the final project will follow pending the completion of the Fraser Health led Master Concept Plan for the Peace Arch Hospital Campus, which is now underway.
