An elegant evening of ballroom dancing in which local dance instructors are teamed up with a star-studded cast, and dance for charity.
Proceeds benefit the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation.
This year, BWTS has a specific goal. Spirit of the North is embarking on a fundraising campaign to purchase a fleet of 62 specialized rehabilitation wheelchairs for University Hospital of Northern BC. Naturally, substantial funds are needed to replace these wheelchairs – just over $102,000, in fact. The wheelchairs are customized to fit each unique patient and are used daily in our hospital by individuals who are recovering from diverse issues such as stroke, traumatic injury and surgeries. BWTS will be the one of the events that will significantly close the gap on funding, and the hope is to have these new wheelchairs in place at UHNBC early in 2017.
