Visions is Victoria’s premiere gala event hosted annually by the Victoria Hospitals Foundation in support of Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals. Since its inception, healthcare leaders, the community and our sponsors have helped raise more than $7.8 million dollars through the gala in support of healthcare on Vancouver Island.

For 28 years, funds raised at Visions have gone directly towards purchasing equipment for Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals. Thanks to hundreds of generous leaders in our community, our hospitals have benefited in a variety of areas of care and in multiple departments:

  • 2018: You Are Vital campaign
  • 2017: Cardiac equipment
  • 2016: Surgery equipment
  • 2015: Interventional angiography systems
  • 2014: Transesophageal echocardiogram ultrasounds
  • 2013: Patient Care Centre equipment: vital signs monitors, smart beds, vocera communications devices, wireless telemetry system
  • 2012: Medication Dispensing Cabinets

This year, the 2018 Visions gala aims to raise funds for equipment that improves patient care for Vancouver Island residents. You can help us raise funds for equipment that benefits patients – your friends, neighbours, and family – in our community’s two major hospitals by attending, sponsoring or donating items to our live and silent auctions.

Volunteering at Visions
Visions is driven by an incredible team of volunteer who provide their time, energy, and expertise. Thanks to the hard work of our many volunteers, Visions 2017 raised almost $698,000 toward the purchase of 34 pieces of leading-edge equipment for cardiac care at Royal Jubilee Hospital. Much of our success depends on the help of a dedicated core of individuals who are committed to lending their valuable time and expertise toward making this one of Victoria’s premiere galas! We are grateful to the many volunteers who make this evening possible.

If you are interested in volunteering for Visions, please let us know! Volunteers can choose from many different positions including setup, coat check, greeters, raffle sellers, auction monitors, and more.
