Sponsored by Amber Financial, the 6th Annual LGH Community Cares Gala, organized by the Asian Advisory Committee under the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, was successfully held on October 27th at the Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver. Over 350 representatives from various industries, community leaders, and philanthropists attended the gala in support of Lions Gate Hospital, raising over 220,000 Canadian dollars.
The “Community Cares Gala” is a large-scale charity event initiated by the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation to raise funds for the hospital. Serving areas including North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Sunshine Coast, and Powell River, Lions Gate Hospital provides comprehensive medical services, including general medicine, emergency care, specialized care, and neurosurgery. It is also the fourth busiest hospital in Vancouver and one of the five neurosurgery centers in British Columbia. Over the past five years, the charity gala has raised over one million Canadian dollars in net proceeds for Lions Gate Hospital.
As a socially responsible company, Amber Financial actively supports Lions Gate Hospital in safeguarding community health. The company donated 100,000 Canadian dollars to assist the hospital in acquiring advanced medical equipment. Additionally, Amber Financial had the honor of being the exclusive title sponsor for the 2023 charity gala, reinforcing their commitment to community support.
Ms. Cindy, Vice President of Amber Financial, expressed great honor in sponsoring the Lions Gate Hospital charity gala. The 100,000 CAD donation is just the beginning, and the company will continue to uphold its charitable initiatives, staying true to the commitment of giving back to society. Amber Financial looks forward to long-term collaboration with Lions Gate Hospital, contributing to the well-being of the North Shore community.
The gala opened with welcoming remarks from Ms. Darlene MacKinnon, Vice President of Coastal Health, Vancouver. She expressed gratitude for the charitable contributions of all attendees, emphasizing the importance of medical environments and facilities in the recovery of patients. Each act of kindness contributes to the early recovery of patients and their return to their homes.
During the gala, the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation presented “Community Leadership Awards” and “Certificates of Appointment” to individuals and groups actively involved in fundraising and supporting the hospital. These awards recognized their significant contributions to the charity cause and their exemplary demonstration of compassion within the community.
The 2023 “Community Cares Gala,” generously sponsored by Amber Financial, featured a “Masquerade Ball” theme, recreating classic scenes from “The Phantom of the Opera.” The entire masked ball, with its vibrant and mysterious atmosphere, radiant lighting, and intertwining toasts, radiated the glow of love and charity. Each moment of the evening was splendidly captured in this mesmerizing setting.
While the 6th Annual “Community Cares Gala” sponsored by Amber Financial concluded successfully, the spirit of love, dedication, and integrity continues to resonate within the community. This charitable sponsorship not only reflects Amber’s firm commitment to philanthropy but also embodies their enthusiasm and original intentions for community giving.
