Moonlight Gala Donation

February 17, 2022
Local philanthropists step up and donate $100,000 to Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation in support of the online Moonlight Gala 2.0

Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation (DHCHF) is proud to announce that local longtime philanthropists Kenny and Arlene Kyan have generously donated $100,000 towards the Moonlight Gala 2.0 in support of Cancer Care. The event is taking place February 24-27, 2022 and the entire community is invited to participate via an online auction, a one-day raffle and Fund A Need (an opportunity to make a tax receiptable donation).

Moonlight Gala 2.0 will raise funds for critical cancer screening equipment at Delta Hospital which includes a new Fixed X-Ray Detector, endoscopic cameras, and other immediate cancer related needs which will cost over $200,000.

“Delta Hospital means a lot to me and my wife, Arlene,” says Kenny Kyan. “When we heard that the in-person Gala had to be postponed, we knew that we wanted to make sure that this event would be successful. Arlene and I are so very proud to be supporting cancer care at Delta Hospital, and we hope that our gift will inspire others to do the same.”

“We are honoured to receive this incredible donation from our longtime donors, Kenny and Arlene Kyan, towards our online Moonlight Gala,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. “These exceptional donors have taken us halfway to our goal, but we still need the support from our community to complete the funding for the rest of the critical cancer screening equipment. We truly appreciate the generosity of our community and hope that you will go online and support our event.”

To kick off the event, there will be a one-day raffle on Thursday, February 24th for His and Hers Cruiser eBikes worth $4,600. Tickets are one for $50 or three for $100 and will only be sold on February 24th from 8am to 9pm (with the draw at 9:30pm that day). The event continues online until February 27th where you can bid on over 75 fabulous auction items and donate directly towards cancer care equipment at Delta Hospital.

You are encouraged to register online prior to the event and take a sneak peek at some of the auction items. To register with your mobile phone or email, please visit our Moonlight Gala 2.0 page.
