The Gift of Love Gala

The Gift of Love gala will bring together leading BC businesses, organizations, and philanthropists for an elegant evening hosted at The Ramada Abbotsford on Saturday, February 13, 2016. The program features an incredible meal, live entertainment, a unique live and silent auction, dancing, and a celebration of the love that is witnessed everyday at Canuck Place.

We are thrilled to announce that with the outstanding support of the Fraser Valley community, the Gift of Love gala is now sold out. But you can still support BC’s children living with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them by providing medical respite through our Fund-a-Need program.

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice (CPCH) is British Columbia’s recognized pediatric palliative care provider. Over 600 newborns, children and teens with life-threatening illnesses and their families receive care from CPCH through outreach programs and two provincial hospice locations; Vancouver and Abbotsford. Services include clinical respite and family support, pain and symptom management, 24-hour phone consultation support and in-house clinical care, art and education, recreation therapy, grief and loss counselling and end-of-life care.

Our second provincial location in Abbotsford currently offers community-centred services to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. These services include visits by physicians, nurses and counsellors in hospitals and homes, individual and group grief and loss support, as well as recreation therapy for children and families registered in the program.

Through the investment of the community, our talented team, and over 325 energetic volunteers we make a lasting difference in the lives of children and the families who love them.

At Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, a life is not measured by hours, days or years, but by the richness of each moment. Children who struggle with life-limiting conditions serve as a powerful reminder of the sanctity of human life, and the importance of practicing compassion, generosity, gratitude and love.

Your Gift of Love supports children and families across BC who face incredible circumstances every day. With your investment, Canuck Place is able to provide care at their greatest time of need. Together, we are grander.
