To Surrey With Love: Qualico Sponsors Surrey Hospital Foundation’s Celebration Of Care Gala
Surrey, BC – For the second year in a row, Qualico was the reception sponsor for the Surrey Hospital Foundation’s Celebration of Care Gala. The James Bond-themed event was held at the Aria Banquet Hall on Saturday, February 23, and raised over $4.8 million.
The sold-out event kicked off a major fundraising campaign in support of Surrey Memorial’s surgical centre, with the ultimate goal raising $10 million in order to update and renew the 10 operating rooms with modern, leading-edge technology and equipment.
“As the fastest growing city in the province and one of the fastest growing cities in Canada, Qualico understands the importance of having quality, top tier healthcare close to home for families living in Surrey and the surrounding communities,” said Gary Mertens, Regional Vice-President, Qualico BC. “Qualico believes in creating healthier, more vibrant and stronger communities and therefore continues to consciously give back to where we live, work and play."
The overwhelming majority of Qualico’s business in BC is in the Fraser Valley, with an abundance of projects in Surrey. Qualico supports the communities in which it builds, and Surrey is no exception.
“We’ve been building in BC for over 25 years, and there has been an influx of people moving to Surrey in particular," said Amie Tran, Marketing Manager, Foxridge Homes. "Surrey is expecting 300,000 new people within the next 30 years. There are a lot of new people moving here, so it’s nice to invest in infrastructure and health care in the area, because we’re going to need it."
