CBC is proud to sponsor the Angel Campaign at Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) this holiday season. The Angel Campaign helps fund critically-needed medical equipment and important research at VGH, UBC Hospital and GF Strong Rehab Centre.
Every year, generous donors make gifts supporting the hospitals and dedicate Angels to loved ones or special doctors, nurses or caregivers for the specialized care they provide to critically ill and injured patients from across BC. Thousands of dedicated Angels - each representing their own story - will be displayed on trees at the Winter Wonderland in the Diamond Family Courtyard at VGH in December.
Two campaign highlights will take place December 15th:
LIVE Radio Broadcast: tune-in to CBC Radio One's The Early Edition, with Rick Cluff from 5:30 - 8:30 am that day as the Early Edition team broadcasts live from VGH. You can also come by VGH to watch it all happen.
Angel Dedication Event: come to VGH at 11:30am and be part of an event honouring and celebrating the season and angels around us. CBC News Vancouver's Gloria Macarenko will be a part of the ceremony.
Please be a "Guardian Angel" and support the hospitals with a donation and Angel Dedication. Visit www.angelsatvgh.ca to dedicate an Angel and help decorate our tree.
