FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The 22nd Annual FSJ Hospital Foundations ‘Be an Angel’ Gala raised over $130,000 on Saturday, November 3.
The Ralph Pomeroy Ballroom at the Pomeroy Hotel and Conference Centre was transformed into a Northern Lights themed vision. As guests wined and dined, they were entertained with an animated reading of ‘The Cremation of Sam McGee’ an original song about the Foundation’s 25th Anniversary, a live auction and a silent auction.
Valerie Powel was the recipient of this year’s 2018 Janet Taylor Award. Powell served as a Director of the Hospital board, organized the original fundraiser for the hospital and has been a volunteer of the Hospital and Foundation for over 30 years.
The FSJ Hospital Foundation would like to thank the many guests, volunteers and sponsors that helped make this event be a great success. A special thank you is extended Tourmaline Oil Corp’s $10,000 sponsorship and Pembina Pipeline Corporation $3,000 sponsorship.
