Celebrating the Spirit of Christmas - Lions Gate Hospital Foundation

There are many ways you can support Lions Gate Hospital this holiday season! By making a direct donation to our MRI campaign, purchasing Christmas Cards and chocolate or buying 50/50 tickets, you will help us raise funds that will make a difference to health care in our community.

LGH Foundation is raising funds to purchase a second MRI machine for LGH. While emergency patients are seen right away patients with non-urgent conditions face wait times of up to six months. As many as 50% of patients in the LGH catchment area are also forced to travel into Vancouver for appointments because we don’t have the MRI capacity on the North Shore.

We want to help these patients who have non-life-threatening but debilitating and painful conditions receive faster access to diagnosis and treatment.

100% of your donation will go towards the cost of a new MRI machine and renovations to create a new MRI suite. You can make a direct donation on the form below.


Add a dash of whimsy to your Christmas season by purchasing a pack of our charity Christmas cards. The cards, which have been designed by North Shore Student Bjorn Thor cost $15 for a pack of 12. They are now available to purchase direct from the Foundation or all four Save-on-Food stores on the North Shore.


There are five golden tickets worth $100 hidden in our charity chocolate bars which are now on sale at Save-on-Food stores on the North Shore and Mehri’s Cafe in the LGH atrium. Each golden tickets is worth $100

The milk chocolate bars, cost $3 each and if you win a golden ticket, you’ll have a $100 gift card to spend at Save-on-Foods.

Proceeds from the sale of this great stocking filler will support our campaign to bring a second MRI to Lions Gate Hospital.


In 2021 we’ve raised a total of $124,800 through our online draw and given away half of that to three lucky winners. The next draw takes place just in time for Christmas on December 22, 2021. Purchase your tickets now.

The LGH 50/50 is the only lottery that directly supports health care on the North Shore. Tickets cost 2 for $10; 5 for $20; 15 for $50 and 50 for $100. Half of the proceeds go towards improving patient care.

Help us create our biggest jackpot yet by purchasing your tickets now.
