Special Delivery

By Thank You!

In celebration of our incredible healthcare team working in the NRGH Intensive Care Unit, Pattie Walker, owner of Pattie’s Party Palace and Marcel Gauthier, owner of Papa John’s Pizza wanted to do something special to give back. Pattie, who shared her appreciation of support for her business over the years and who’s daughter happens to be an ICU nurse in Burnaby, asked her daughter “what should I do?” her daughter replied “food” so Pattie and Marcel connected and together delivered 90 pizzas, sodas and snacks for our entire ICU team to enjoy!
