Medical clinics in Ghana and Zambia benefit from 10 years of partnership
What: The 10th Annual Global Gala
Who: Hosted by nursing students in partnership with the Okanagan Zambia Health Initiative
When: Friday, November 23, at 6 p.m.
Where: The Delta Grand Resort, Kelowna
For the past 10 years, UBC Okanagan nursing students have hosted the Global Gala, a community event that raises funds for medical clinics in Zambia and Ghana.
The Global Gala is a formal evening that features a three-course dinner, entertainment, silent auction and more. All funds raised go directly towards health initiatives supporting outreach clinics and purchasing medical equipment in Zambia and Ghana. This year’s theme will focus on the progress made in the 10 years that this fundraiser has taken place.
Every year, a group of UBC Okanagan nursing students and faculty travel to clinics in Zambia and Ghana. It’s an opportunity to deliver the funds raised through the global gala to partners in Africa and also see how the funds raised are benefitting the people in these countries.
Tickets are $150 and an early bird price of $135 is available until October 21. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite at: eventbrite.ca/e/tenth-annual-global-gala-tickets-50657803855
