11th Anniversary November 7, 2009


it’s nice to meet you The Crystal Gala Foundation is made up of a dynamic group of women from all walks of life. Over the past nine years, our committee of volunteers have met around a kitchen table but always achieved boardroom results. Our team, along with our partners, have raised over $800,000 dollars for breast cancer. The group meets monthly to collaborate on ideas for fundraising, theme, dÊcor, sponsorship and entertainment. The Foundation warmly welcomes you to the 2009 Crystal Gala. Enjoy the gala with us!

our chairs The will to make a difference… Eleven years later the “will” of The Crystal Gala Committee is still going strong and our dedicated team of women continue to work hard. This year, we reaffirmed our commitment to the fight against breast cancer with another $500,000 pledge to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre. Given the economic climate, we are very grateful for the amazing support that we are receiving from the business community and the many contributors that have been so loyal to The Gala over the years. It is because of your support that many families faced with breast cancer are enjoying a full and happy life. We have so much to be thankful for - our families, our friends, our health and our vitality. We see the opportunity to contribute to the health and well-being of someone else’s loved one as a reward that each one of us can take pride in. To know that, collectively, we are all making a difference is a legacy that this community should be extremely proud of. Our 11th anniversary will see us party Viva La Gala style - which means LIFE! With hard work and determination, we know that this evening will once again bring us one step closer to the ultimate reward – an end to breast cancer. We thank-you for you for becoming part of our…”will to make a difference!” Your generosity will help us continue the fight against breast cancer and we will ensure that your dollars make a difference right here is your own backyard! That is our commitment to you. 2009 Co-Chairs Dorothy Dyck, Tanya Curtis, and Dixie Jacobson

Thank-you for your ongoing support.

the legacy is local The Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre is a worldclass medical facility serving residents of Abbotsford as well as other communities in the eastern Fraser Valley. In 2007, the Crystal Gala Foundation pledged a lead gift of $500,000 to A Campaign for Health Care Excellence to ensure that hospital patients receive the best possible treatment and care. With the generous support of our sponsors, donors and guests, the Foundation fulfilled its pledge and has now doubled its commitment for a total pledge of $1 Million. The funds raised support the Crystal Gala Breast Health Unit in the hospital, where digital mammography and enhanced programs and resources ultimately provide shortened exam and diagnosis time frames leading to improved patient care
