BLUEY DAY 'Be Brave & Shave'
The Hospital Foundation invites individuals, families, friends, and businesses to register individually or as a team and to 'Be Brave and Shave' for the 22nd Annual Bluey Day. Registration Opens March 1, 2021
Participants grow their hair, and collect pledges from the community to have their head/facial hair shaved on Saturday, May 15, 2021 to show their support for those who have been touched by cancer in one way or another.
We will be following strict health advisories to keep participants safe on location. As we are limiting the number of participants and attendees we will be recording the event to share with family and friends.

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 honoring their memory. To date, it has raised over $50,000

'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.
