We had fun photographing the 20th anniversary of the Night of a Thousand Stars Gala held by the VGH/UBC Hospital Foundation at the Vancouver Convention Centre this past Winter. An event with over 900 guests, this definitely wasn’t a small affair. Hosted by Chris Gailus, news anchor for Global BC, The silent auction, dinner, live bidding auction all contributed to a successful $3.3 million raised that will go towards a hybrid operating room at the Vancouver General Hospital that will contain sophisticated radiological imaging equipment. This eliminates the need to transport patients to a different location for imaging, which saves critical time. The funds will also go towards other urgently needed equipment at VGH, UBC Hospital, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre and Community Health Services across Vancouver.
Congratulations to the gala committee and the unsung heroes behind the scenes that organized and made this event a HUGE success!
