'Be an Angel' Campaign
The Be an Angel campaign is the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation’s signature annual fundraiser.
Throughout November every year, donations can be made through various events and opportunities in the community. Our goal is to raise $250,000 that will continue to support the emergent needs for medical equipment to enhance patient comfort and care at the Fort St. John Hospital and Peace Villa Residential Care Facility.
- Annual Be An Angel Gala, we are sorry to announce that our Gala at the Pomeroy Hotel has been cancelled for 2020.
- Third Party Events where individuals and groups help raise money for our hospital by hosting their own fundraisers. Contact us for more information.
How do we do it?
- Mail Out at this time of the year many choose to donate in memory or in honour of a loved one, and hang a paper angel ornament in their name on the Celebration of Life Christmas Tree (this year it will displayed in the Fort St John Totem Mall). If you are on our mail list you will receive your mail out letter each year with a donation buck slip and paper angel ornament (please join our mailing list).

I REMEMBER QUILT
The ‘I Remember’ Quilt was handmade in 2007 with the help of volunteers. It provides an opportunity to remember those in our lives who are gone but not forgotten.
Every year, the quilt is auctioned off at the Hospital Foundation’s Angel Gala, with the successful bidder having the name of their loved one sewn onto the quilt, forever honouring their memory. To date, it has raised $45,525.
With this year's Angel Gala cancelled, the ‘I Remember’ Quilt will still be up for auction. Please watch out for more information as to the auction details or contact us at 250.261.7563 for more information.
