The 13th annual ‘Be an Angel Campaign’ kicks off next week.

To celebrate, Fort St. John City Council proclaimed November as Fort St. John Hospital Foundation month.

The Angel Campaign begins on November 1st with a community gala. Fund Development Officer Ashley Bentley says the money goes toward its Visiting Specialist Campaign, which brings nine different specialists to the community.

The funds will allow the foundation to purchase new equipment for specialists, in hopes of attracting more specialists to the area.
