Peach Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society

The Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society has been in existence since 1948 with a rich history of “Having fun, raising funds”. Currently eight different groups hold meetings on a regular basis to plan and coordinate a wide variety of fundraising activities that raise money toward the care and comfort of the patients, residents and clients at Peace Arch Hospital.

The Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society recently made our largest single donation in our history of 1.5 million dollars to the Emergency Department Expansion. We are very proud to be the major donor for this campaign. Over the past 69 years the Auxiliary has purchased over 13 million dollars of equipment for Peace Arch Hospital.

Currently over 225 Auxiliary members are volunteering in the Superfluity Thrift Shop, the Gift Shop located in the hospital and in various groups that raise funds through Lobby Sales, Golf Tournaments, Bridge Luncheons, Fashion shows, Wine Tastings and Music Concerts.
