About the Gala

Burnaby Hospital Foundation encourages you to save the date for our 9th Annual Gala, Under the Tuscan Stars presented by Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society. Last year, we celebrated the best aspects of Burnaby and brought the spotlight to the strength and tenacity in the place we call home. This year, we take a journey to experience the rich and diverse culture of Italy, rooted in their strong sense of family and community.

On October 27, join us for an evening surrounded by our supporters, including physicians, sponsors, corporate and community philanthropists, and elected officials. Revel in the sights and sounds of Italy at our cocktail reception, followed by a delicious multi-course meal, live entertainment, dancing, and auctions – all in support of Burnaby Hospital’s redevelopment campaign.

Check back soon for more information

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

The highly anticipated redevelopment will significantly expand services available for patients and families and boost the number of beds by almost 50 percent. When the project is complete, the campus will have two new patient care towers and a cancer treatment centre.


As the fundraising organization for Burnaby Hospital, the 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.
