Funds directly support burn survivors across the province, many of whom are treated at the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn, Plastic and High Acuity Unit at VGH.”

“Each ticket purchase has a direct impact on patients and enables us be able to put the most advanced medical tools into the hands of our talented medical teams, ensuring that VGH remains at the forefront of specialized care for adults in BC,” said Barbara Grantham, President & CEO, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.
