Many thanks to our wonderful donors from Parksville and Qualicum Beach who were able to join us for the Oceanside Donor Recognition Evening on May 9th at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre. We were so pleased to have the opportunity to say “thank you” in person for your dedicated support. Additionally, it was an honour for the Vice-Chair of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, Jim Crist, to present Quality Foods with their Platinum Philanthropist plaque. Platinum Philanthropists have reached the highest level of recognition by giving, or exceeding, $150,000 in support of healthcare for Vancouver Islanders. Quality Foods continued their generosity with a presentation of their own! Rob MacKay, Dianne Rivard, and John Briuolo presented the Foundation with a $12,500 contribution to the Quality Foods Community Health Endowment Fund; a Fund that was established in 2008 to support the health and wellness of customers and employees. Thank you to Quality Foods! The Foundation hosts an annual Donor Recognition Evening in Oceanside and Nanaimo to say “thank you” to those who share our vision of healthy communities.
