$10,000 to Canuck Place from Pan Pacific Whistler

Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre donates over $35,000 to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice from Canuck Place Suite proceeds

(Whistler) On a brisk fall day in November the team from Pan Pacific Whistler visited the iconic Canuck Place Children’s Hospice to drop off a cheque for $10,052.46.

In the last 4 years, over $35,000 has been given to the children’s hospice from the Pan Pacific Whistler hoteliers.

Each year, ten percent of all room revenue generated from guest stays in Canuck Place Suite located in Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre is collected and then donated to Canuck Place.

Pan Pacific Whistler General Manager, Lloyd Daser says, “Visiting Canuck Place is always so humbling for me and our team. We enjoy hosting visitors in our hotel, but experiencing the level of hospitality offered to families in need while visiting the hospice inspires us do more for our guests as well. It is an honour for our team to be affiliated with this amazing facility.”

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice (CPCH) is British Columbia’s recognized pediatric palliative care provider. Over 560 newborns, children and teens with life-threatening illnesses and their families receive care from CPCH through outreach programs and two provincial hospice locations; Vancouver and Abbotsford. Services include clinical respite and family support, pain and symptom management, 24-hour phone consultation support and in-house clinical care, art and education, recreation therapy, grief and loss counselling and end-of-life care. Through the investment of the community and over 325 energetic volunteers, this talented team makes a lasting difference in the lives of children and the families who love them. www.canuckplace.org

On behalf of the staff, children and families I would like to share our gratitude with the Pan Pacific, their team and guests.”
