How to raise money for BC Children’s Hospital?
Throw a Pirate Party!
For Kim Johannsen of Duncan, BC, his relationship with BC Children’s Hospital isn’t just business. It’s personal as well.
Kim’s son Erik was a cardiology patient at BC Children’s Hospital in 1999. Today, Erik continues with annual visits to the Hospital to monitor his heart function but otherwise he is a healthy, athletic 11-year-old.
In addition to Kim’s support of Children’s through the RE/MAX Miracle Home Program, the Johannsens recently raised $600 for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. To celebrate Kim’s 50th he held a pirate-themed party and the family asked his friends and extended family to donate ” dubloonies” to his pirate chest. Erik also raised $100 on his own through a garage sale.
