The new year is here and the Auxiliary is already gearing up for an exciting year of
Fundraising and giving back to the Hospital.
It is a long tradition for the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary that we celebrate the
arrival of the first baby born in our hospital each year. The mother is given a
bouquet of flowers specially made for her by our Flower Power group.
The baby is given a teddy bear and other gifts including a hand knitted layette
with a jacket and matching booties. The baby is also presented with a onesie with
the words, I was born at Peace Arch Hospital on it.
We want to thank everyone in the community for supporting our many sales and
activities that we held this year – everyone who participates in our fundraisers
from bridge luncheons, golf tournament, Naughty and Ice, linen sales, grinch tree
sales bake sales and Jewellery Sales.
Leading up to Christmas many people including the staff at the hospital supported
our sales in the Hospital cafeteria, did some shopping and bought goodies at our
numerous bake sales.
This past Christmas season many customers were able to do some of their
seasonal shopping at our Gift Shop located in the lobby of the hospital.
The support of our Gift Shop helps with our fundraising.
The Superfluity Shop job had a large Christmas department this year. Many of the
volunteers decorated the shop and displayed the items so well that it made a
huge difference to their sales. This shop has over 130 dedicated volunteers who
help make it a success.
This past year The Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society was able to purchase over
$300,000.00 to provide much needed equipment and patient comforts for our
