2014 Spirit of Philanthopy Award
Every year West Park Foundation, through the Spirit of Philanthropy Award, recognizes an individual who has shown a commitment and contribution of time and energy to help further the Foundation's efforts. This year, the recipient is actually a group of caring and generous individuals. That group is the Wish Committee. The members of the Committee come from all around the Centre. We have Kim Bell, Lijeanne Lee, David Garlin, Amanda Brown, Stephen Hudecki, Pat Godin, Judy Gargaro, and Laura Forma. The Wish Committee has had a hospital-wide impact in not only granting the wishes of patients but in bringing the West Park "family" together with the common goal of making these wishes come true. In its inaugural year, the committee received 21 wishes and worked tirelessly to ensure each wish was granted. The members of the Wish Committee go above and beyond to enhance the lives of West Park patients and inspire others with their generosity and perfectly embody the spirit of philanthropy. We thank the Wish Committee for demonstrating the dedication and kindness that make West Park the truly special place that it is.
