Fruiticana Raises $100,000 for Surrey Hospital Foundation’s Children’s Health Centre

Darpan News Desk Darpan, 22 Oct, 2020
  • Fruiticana Raises $100,000 for Surrey Hospital Foundation’s Children’s Health Centre

Tony Singh, the founder of Fruiticana, one of Western Canada's largest grocery chains, has helped raise $100,000 for the Surrey Hospital Foundation’s Children’s Health Centre renewal campaign.

Fruiticana raised the money from two in-store fundraising campaigns throughout the year in celebration of Diwali and Vaisakhi.

As one of the Foundation’s first Community Champions, Fruiticana has continued to give generously to the Foundation’s fundraising campaigns.

 

The Community Champions program was launched in 2019 to spark interest amongst philanthropic businesses who are looking for creative ways to give back to their community. 

The Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH) is the only health facility in the Fraser Health region dedicated to children’s health and paediatric emergencies, including children’s surgery and cancer programs. SMH has the region’s only children’s emergency department, one of only two in British Columbia.

The Children’s Health Centre treats 43 per cent of B.C.’s children who reside in the Fraser Health region, and treated 46,000 children in 2019.

The Foundation is working with the community to raise $6 million to transform the Children’s Health Centre, to add and expand new clinics and services including Neurology, Cardiology & Nephrology (kidney).

Attendees included:

Tony Singh, Founder & President, Fruiticana

Azra Hussain, Surrey Hospitals Foundation, Chief Operating Officer

Don Hickling, Surrey Hospitals Foundation’s Vice President, Leadership Giving

Sonia Virk, Surrey Hospitals Foundation Board Member

Harp Dhillon, Surrey Hospitals Foundation Board Member

Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade
