Peninsula businesses step up for hospital

White Rock/South Surrey companies support Peace Arch Hospital project.

A handful of Peninsula restaurants and businesses are making it easy to serve up support for Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation this month.

The foundation announced earlier this year a commitment to raise $15 million towards a $20-million expansion of Peace Arch Hospital’s emergency department – work that is expected to get underway next summer.

To help, West Beach Grill (1101 Elm St.) has committed to donate 25 cents from every customer bill during October to the foundation; Roadhouse Grille (1781 King George Blvd.) has committed 50 cents per bill.

For one week (Oct. 11-18), White Spot (at both the 1681 152 St. and 15877 Croydon Dr. locations) will donate 25 cents per bill; The Wooden Spoon Co. (15171 Russell Ave.) will donate 50 cents per bill.

Also, Ocean Park Village Pub (12822 16 Ave.) has pledged to donate 10 per cent of all gift cards sold between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30.

For those visiting Thrifty Foods Morgan Crossing, the Pumpkins for Patients campaign will be back from Oct. 14-31, with $1 from the sale of every pumpkin, pumpkin pie or Thrifty Kitchen pumpkin soup to benefit the hospital’s ER campaign.

Nygard Fashions is also pitching in, with proceeds from its annual fall sample sale – set for 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 29 in the hospital’s meeting rooms – to benefit the cause.

Next month, the first annual Sip & Savour is hoped to further boost the cause. Set for 7-10 p.m. Nov. 7 at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, the event includes wine and food sampling. For tickets, $75, contact the foundation at 604-535-4520.

And, White Rock Optometry Clinic is once again focusing on the hospital, pledging to match donations made at their 102-1656 Martin Dr. clinic through Dec. 31 dollar-for-dollar.

For those planning to participate in the upcoming National Bank Financial Great Pumpkin Run Walk – set for Oct. 18 at Bayview Park on White Rock’s Marine Drive – online registration continues through 2 p.m. Oct. 17. For more, visit pahfoundation.ca
