KAMLOOPS – The Royal Inland Hospital Foundation once again is keeping mum on the location of its annual Royal Affair fundraiser.
Two years ago the RIH Foundation revamped its annual fundraising gala and created a mysterious event that leaves guests wondering where they are going up until the day of the event. It’s Kamloops’ best kept secret, and a fundraising event like no other. It’s contemporary, eclectic and full of surprises.
When asked how they manage to create such an amazing event, Heidi Coleman, RIH Foundation CEO, said: “We have an incredible organizing committee who volunteer their time and work tirelessly to ensure guests are provided with a unique and unforgettable evening. They put a ton of thought into making every moment of the evening special for the guests – from the moment they arrive through all the many sensory experiences they encounter throughout the evening.”
But this event is not only about having fun. In the past two years, the event has raised an outstanding $175,000 for Royal Inland Hospital. Construction is well underway on an additional Operating Room at RIH. The funds raised from this year’s event will be used to purchase the remaining equipment needed to outfit this new OR.
As Heidi Coleman says, “We are so grateful for the tremendous support we receive in our community. We are all touched by our hospital in some way, and our supporters recognize that it is only with their generosity that we can keep RIH going strong.”
The Royal Affair, once again proudly presented by KPMG, will take place on Saturday, June 6. Until then, guests will have to wait to see what this year will bring.
