BC Children’s Hospital recognizes community efforts

On May 26, Vanderhoof Community for Kids will be hosting an event at Riverside Park

On May 26, Vanderhoof Community for Kids will be hosting an event at Riverside Park to celebrate the amazing contribution that people and businesses from Vanderhoof and the surrounding area have made toward BC Children’s Hospital this past year. A film crew will be in Vanderhoof that day to film the cheque presentation Vanderhoof Community for Kids will make to BC Children’s Hospital on behalf of the community. There will also be interviews of families from Vanderhoof who have used the hospital in recent years. The cheque presentation and interviews will be shown during the BC Children’s Hospital Miracle Weekend telethon on June 2-3 on Global television. As well, Michelle Roberge, Vanderhoof Community for Kids Co-Chair, will be in Vancouver working the phones during the Miracle Weekend Telethon on the Saturday night (June 2) representing Vanderhoof – be sure to watch!

Come down for cake and goodies from 10:30-11:30am on Saturday May 26 to help us celebrate the great achievement Vanderhoof has made to support sick and injured children from here and all around BC that need the specialized services only available at BC Children’s Hospital.
