Supporters of Peace Arch Hospital were honoured earlier this month at the annual Friends of the Foundation celebration at the Morgan Creek Golf Club.
The sixth annual event, held on Oct. 1, recognized one family, three individuals and one organization for their “extraordinary contributions to the health and wellness of the community” with a special Friends of the Foundation award.
The Cameron family – longtime supports of the foundation – were recognized for their contributions and generosity, which have made a “real and lasting impact at Peace Arch Hospital.”
Dave Lee, who sits on the foundation’s planned giving committee, was also recognized.
According to a news release, Dave has partnered with the foundation on more than a dozen events with local seniors, sharing his knowledge on estate planning and charitable giving.
Also recognized was registered nurse Jodi-rae Kortje, who manages the ER at PAH and has been a tireless supporter of the foundation’s events, and Allan Johanson, a volunteer with the foundation for eight years, serving on the Gala and Great Pumpkin Run Walk committees.
White Rock Optometry was recognized with the Community Partnership Award, for the fundraising efforts, which include matching every dollar that patients donate to the foundation and participating annually in the Great Pumpkin Run Walk, being held this year on Oct. 26.
