This week, St. Paul's Foundation announced the fundraising launch of the 2019 Scotiabank Feast of Fortune Gala to raise funds for much-needed critical care equipment for Mount Saint Joseph (MSJ) Hospital. To kick-off the campaign, gifts of $147,360 were made by members of the Scotiabank Feast of Fortune fundraising committee!

“In 1946, Mount Saint Joseph opened its doors to help care for the Chinese community in Vancouver – the only hospital in the Lower Mainland to do so – and we are proud of this history,” said Sing Lim Yeo, gala founder and committee member, and 2019 event honoree. “We’re pleased to help continue this long legacy of compassionate care for all patients by supporting the Scotiabank Feast of Fortune.”

Now in its twelfth year, the Scotiabank Feast of Fortune is a festive celebration of Chinese New Year, combining incredible food creations, spectacular live entertainment and a highly-anticipated live auction. Since 2008, the galas have raised over $5.7 million for the purchase of vital medical equipment for Mount Saint Joseph Hospital. The 2019 Scotiabank Feast of Fortune takes place on Saturday, January 26 in advance of Chinese New Year, which is on February 5.

This year, all money raised will go towards funding the greatest needs right across Mount Saint Joseph Hospital including life-saving equipment for cardiology, surgery, emergency, imaging, and more.
