Your ticket to Hollywood: Surrey Hospital gala rolls out the red carpet

Fundraising gala fit for the stars supports surgical suite renovations

A little glitz and plenty of glamour is coming to Surrey this winter … and you’re invited!

The Surrey Hospital Foundation’s fifth annual Celebration of Care Gala brings an evening of Hollywood glam to the Aria Banquet Hall Feb. 22.

The evening begins when you step onto the paparazzi-lined red carpet, where VIP guests will be interviewed by Virgin Radio host Nira Arora, the red carpet correspondent for the evening.

“We look forward to spoiling our guests from start to finish,” says Surrey Hospital Foundation President and CEO Jane Adams.

Inside, an elegant evening awaits, emceed by CTV newscasters Keri Adams and Jason Pires.

From the red carpet, move into the reception area and lounges where you can sip signature cocktails, sample nitro popcorn served on dry ice, and have fun in the photobooth, all to the tunes of duelling DJs Pri and Chloe to start.

Presented by returning co-sponsors Berezan and Ellis Don, the gala includes a gourmet Peake of Catering dinner, an awesome raffle prize of a car courtesy of Surrey Honda, and an exciting live auction with showman Fred Lee.

Prefer a more low-key approach to bidding? You’ll also find many amazing items in a silent auction on the Givergy platform, hosted by Leith Wheeler.

Finish the evening with a dance party with the Dr. Strangelove Band, known for covering everything from Frank Sinatra to Lady Gaga.

“This gala is the largest event of its kind in Surrey and we are humbled by the community’s support,” Adams says.

Funds raised at the gala will help renovate 10 operating rooms at Surrey Memorial Hospital, the busiest surgical centre in the Fraser Valley region. Last year alone, the centre performed 21,240 surgeries, including more than 1,200 on children. The renovations will help attract and retain top surgical talent and allow the hospital to continue providing the best care for patients.

But none of that would be possible without the support of gala guests and the evening’s many generous sponsors. And while there is still time to get involved, the gala committee expects sponsorship and tables will be sold by Christmas, Adams adds.

“It is heartwarming to see this event at capacity every year in support of health care in Surrey,” she says. “We’re the province’s fastest growing city and those supporting health care are making an important community investment.”
