Did you know that 90% of Canadians support organ donation, but only 20% are registered? There are currently over 600 people waiting for an organ transplant in British Columbia alone, many of them children. This is something the David Foster Foundation is trying to change!
On July 30 to August 2, 2018, distinguished donors from all over North America gathered at the Villa Eyrie Resort to attend the David Foster Foundation’s ‘Simply Spectacular Experience on Vancouver Island’. In partnership with the GAIN Group, the event raised two million dollars in support of families with children going through the life-saving organ transplant process.
Over the past 31 years, the David Foster Foundation has assisted over 1,100 families, many of whom live on our beautiful island. The support provided to these families would not be possible without the humbling generosity of others, including the incredible generosity and commitment of the GAIN Group and the Villa Eyrie Resort. It is truly remarkable to see people in our community band together in support of others. Our community benefits greatly from their efforts. The event was a dazzling success!
Compassion and generosity is something to be celebrated on the West Shore!
