The most meaningful gift you’ll give this season
As a Lights of Hope sponsor, you provide essential equipment and resources to our health care heroes. You support incredible, world-leading research that saves and improves lives. And you bring comfort and compassion to patients, residents, and families across British Columbia.
In addition to the stars that shine brightly at St. Paul’s Hospital, Lights of Hope displays bring the spirit of joy and celebration to Mount Saint Joseph Hospital, Holy Family Hospital, Providence’s long-term care homes in Vancouver, and The Views at St. Joseph’s in Comox.

Stars! Stars! Stars!
The iconic Lights of Hope stars come in five different sizes. Depending on your sponsorship tier, your star may also include your company’s logo.
No matter the size of the star you sponsor, it will shine brightly throughout the holiday season. Thousands of people will see your firm’s name and what it stands for: your commitment to social responsibility, to the health and wellness of British Columbians, and to the community in which you do business.
Employee volunteering opportunities
Pop quiz: How many lights in the Lights of Hope display?
Okay, it’s a bit of a trick question because we don’t know exactly how many individual lights there are. But we do know there are more than 1,200 meters of sparkling lights and that it takes more than 2,500 zip ties to keep the whole thing together.
Here’s where you come in!
There is quite possibly no better team-building opportunity than being part of the Lights of Hope display crew at St. Paul’s Hospital! And there’s certainly no better way to get into the holiday spirit. We even provide hot chocolate!
Depending on your level of support, you can reserve a display set-up day as a volunteering opportunity for your employees. You could choose a private team-building day tailored to your group or bring your crew down to participate in one of our general volunteer sessions.
This indoor, invitation-only reception brings top-tier sponsors and donors together with senior leadership from St. Paul’s Foundation and Providence Health Care. It’s an evening of celebration and networking as we count down to the big moment when the Lights of Hope display comes to life for the first time of the season.
