New York, New York Gala: November 2015
Each November, Burnaby Hospital Foundation hosts its signature fundraising event. Every year, the Foundation's gala presents a "passport" to another global destination and another wonderful evening with friends and colleagues. In 2014, it was Paris; in November 2015, guests found themselves in a New York state of mind amid the cosmopolitan buzz of the Big Apple. Some 300 gala attendees came together for an unprecedented evening of support for their community hospital. Emcee Red Robinson was in top form as he entertained the audience and let all though the evening's activities, including presentations, raffles, auctions and, later, dancing the night away.
