Events › Annual Gala

Thank you to those who supported the Wine & Dine In 2021 Virtual Gala, and helped make it the success that it was.

You can still donate to the Gala’s From the Heart campaign.

‘From the Heart’ gives you the opportunity to make a charitable contribution that will help purchase specific equipment that provides essential care for our patients in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

This year’s From the Heart video, titled “Breathless,” is highlighting a high-priority need from our Respiratory Therapy department.

The Transport Ventilator is a small and compact ventilator that allows the Respiratory Therapists to provide similar ventilation that a bedside unit provides, but while transporting the intubated patients for tests and procedures.

Presently, all intubated COVID-19 patients are transferred to other sites. Transport of intubated patients to other sites regularly occurs approximately once per week, but with COVID-19, it has risen to approximately three times per week.

This dependable, compact, and light ventilator allows safe transport of patients to other sites and reduces the risk of injury to staff.

We are delighted to announce that all From the Heart donations will be matched (to a maximum of $15,000) by long-time Gala supporters—The Jourdain Family.

As a family committed to health care and their community, the Jourdain Family has been supporting the Gala as the presenting sponsor, FRPD, since 2007.

Recognizing that philanthropy is a family commitment, this year they have chosen to include their children and grandchildren in their philanthropic efforts and have generously committed $15,000 toward the purchase of a transport ventilator at Ridge Meadows Hospital.

We’d also like to give thanks to Maverick Video Group for producing the From the Heart video, as they do every year.
