Shella Chan and her husband, Tony Chan, have been Burnaby residents for over two decades. In that time, they have used the services at Burnaby Hospital a number of times and have always known that they want to give back to the institution that has always been there to support them when needed.
After hearing word about Burnaby Hospital’s redevelopment, Shella and her husband began planning a live charity concert, allowing their mutual love of music to help inspire others to give back.
“We really feel that we want to do something to help our local community in Burnaby. Seeing that many organizations have done fundraising for other hospitals in Vancouver and Richmond, we feel that Burnaby Hospital also will need tremendous help,” says Shella.
On October 23rd, 2021, Shella hosted the Shella & Friends Charity Concert, raising a total of $3,889 for Burnaby Hospital Foundation. This donation will go towards the Bright Future of Burnaby Hospital.
