RCH Donation Day nets $258K
The Donation Day radiothon on CKNW Oct. 2 raised more than $258,000 for the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation.
The total included a surprise $35,000 pledge from Wesgroup Properties, developers of the Brewery District next door to RCH who have previously made large donations to the foundation.
The money will go toward the 150 Reasons to Give campaign being put on as part of the hospital’s 150th anniversary which was on Oct. 7. The campaign’s goal is to raise $1.5 million to purchase equipment throughout the hospital and support the foundation’s work.
Donations can still be made at rchcares.com or by calling 604-520-4438.
