Giving where we're living
After a long awaited arrival, the SLEEPER CHAIRS have finally arrived. And I was so fortunate to share the event with my dad, family, staff, Mayor Mike Clay of Port Moody, Mayor Richard Stewart of Coquitlam, ERH staff and ERHF staff. Special thanks to ERHF for putting on such a great event with ribbon cutting, cake and coffee too.
We believe everyone should have a comfortable place to sleep if ever faced with needing to support a loved one in hospital. At the recent Grand Opening of my new office in Coquitlam, I saw an opportunity to support a cornerstone of the Tri-Cities community: The Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation. They were in need of more sleeper chairs and with 70% of new hospital equipment purchases coming from fundraising dollars, I saw a unique chance to leverage my strong community presence and the generosity of my many clients. We collected raffle prizes valued at over $10,000 to encourage raffle ticket sales..and it worked! We were able to raise $11,295, most of which was dedicated to the purchase of 3 sleeper chairs. Feels good to give where we live!
