‘Paint the Town Red for ER’ gala May 3 at Centennial Arena

WHITE ROCK – "Paint the Town Red for ER" is the title of the gala fundraiser for Peach Arch Hospital & Community Health Foundation this spring.


The Partners in Caring event will be held on Saturday, May 3, at Centennial Arena in White Rock.


Since its inception in 1989, the yearly gala has raised an impressive $2.5 million for the hospital.


This year, the arena "ballroom" will be transformed into a dramatic sea of black, white and red, and guests are encouraged to wear those colours. All proceeds will benefit the emergency department at Peace Arch Hospital.


The event will be emceed by Christopher Gaze, artistic director of Bard on the Beach theatre company in Vancouver.


Sponsorship, auction donation and volunteer opportunities are available. For details, call 604-535-4520 or email gala@pahfoundation.ca.


Siobhan Philips and Louise McKnight are co-chairs of the event, which is presented by CIBC Wood Gundy.


"This year’s event is shaping up to be our best ever in terms of the evening’s festivities, auction items and entertainment," McKnight noted.
