The Coast Prince George Hotel’s annual Wine Lovers evening is set for September 24, in support of Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. The much-anticipated, and always sold out event, will take guests on a culinary tour of the Americas, showcasing various wines of different regions. Tickets are on sale now, and after 18 months of virtual events, are expected to go quickly.
“We are so proud of our relationship with Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation,” said Coast Prince George general manager Arun Mutalik, in a news release. “Their contributions and impact in our community is felt by so many, especially after the past year. Wine Lovers allows us to highlight the talents of our team, while giving back to the community, which we are so grateful for. Together, with our media partners Jim Pattison Media, we are delighted to be getting back to normal and honoured to host this event once again — and happy to continue the journey.”
Proceeds from the last few years have primarily been in support of clinical simulation which is a valuable learning tool for physicians, students, clinical staff, as well as first responders throughout the North. Learning to make quick decisions can mean the difference between life and death. Preparing for these unexpected, high-risk events by accurately assessing and responding appropriately, help to ensure the best possible outcomes. As a teaching hospital, providing state of the art equipment for both learning and treatment is essential, and also helps to attract and retain healthcare professionals to the region. We anticipate funding will be directed to a much needed piece of equipment once again.
“We are truly grateful to Coast Hotels, along with our media partners, Pattison Media, for all they do to support healthcare in the North”, said Judy Neiser, CEO for Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. “The energy in the room is always electric- and after such a long time between in-person events, we are so excited to see everyone come together again and highlight the power of our community. As we all know, healthcare touches everyone – ensuring we have the equipment necessary to train and attract the very best health care professionals to our region, is crucial for our communities” said Neiser. “We have accomplished so much thanks to the legacy of Wine Lovers, and are looking forward to continuing this incredible event.”
Tickets can be purchased at the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation Office, located in the atrium of UHNBC, 1475 Edmonton Street, or at the Coast Prince George Hotel. To inquire about tickets, please call 250-565-2515.
