A Gala Reimagined

November 13 @ 7pm

A Gala Reimagined for a Hospital Reimagined

Over the past seven years, our Gala passport has instantly delivered you across the globe, immersing you in the sights, sounds and aesthetics of destinations from Paris to India, Nashville to China, and beyond – without ever having to leave Burnaby. But Burnaby is home, and as we approach the end of a challenging year, we decided there is no other place we would rather be.

In our first-ever virtual gala event, Burnaby Hospital Foundation invites you to pour yourself a glass of wine and relax from the comfort of your own home, while joining us online as we raise the funds needed to transform Burnaby Hospital from a beloved community institution to a state-of-the-art medical facility.


A community hospital is an essential resource for everyone living in its surrounding neighbourhoods. Your hospital is important to the health and wellbeing of your family and its role is pivotal to the vibrancy of the community you share with your friends and neighbours.

Burnaby Hospital is your local hospital, a place for reliable patient-centred health care. With dedicated medical professionals and the support of community partners, the hospital helps you and those you care about get well and stay well.

As the fundraising organization for the hospital, Burnaby Hospital Foundation’s purpose is to ensure that Burnaby Hospital is equipped in every way to advance the health of all generations that will help maintain the vibrancy of the entire community. 

When you choose to donate to Burnaby Hospital Foundation, we understand the reason lies close to your heart. It’s our job to connect you to what matters the most; we want you to have a meaningful giving experience. We uphold a genuine commitment to keep you aware of the impact your donation has on others, the difference it makes, and the power it has to change people’s lives.

    Burnaby Hospital Foundation needs your help to transform a beloved community hospital into a state-of-the-art facility that will meet the growing health care needs of Burnaby and surrounding neighbourhoods for generations to come.

    The two-phase redevelopment of Burnaby Hospital will significantly expand the services available for patients and families and boost the number of beds from 265 to 397, an increase of almost 50 per cent. When the redevelopment is complete, the hospital campus will also have two new patient care towers and a cancer treatment centre.

    Starting immediately, the Foundation is raising $30 million for Phase One, which focuses on four services that are critically important for all local families: emergency, surgery, maternity and mental health.
