Thank you TELUS for your visionary support of the Newborn ICU at BC Women's Hospital.
TELUS went above and beyond to ensure the success of GLOW Gala by stepping up as Presenting Sponsor in addition to providing the leadership of Jill Schnarr as event Co Chair. TELUS further showed their commitment by producing a beautiful video of one of our NICU families; as well as raising a hand on the eve of the event to pledge another $10,000 for the Newborn ICU, bringing the total commitment of TELUS to BC's sickest babies to an astounding $668,000.
We're so pleased to celebrate the total of $1.2 million from the GLOW Gala. Funds raised from the event will be used to provide state-of-the-art emergency transport incubators to the Infant Transport Team - the group of highly-specialized paramedics responsible for flying the sickest babies in to BC Women's Newborn ICU from all over BC.
Thank you TELUS for your enduring support in helping our medical teams provide the very best care for the province's most vulnerable babies.
