Residents of Delta will have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to support the future of long-term care in the community this summer when the inaugural ‘Supper at Sunset’ fundraising dinner takes place on the beautiful Tsawwassen First Nation boardwalk on August 22nd. The unique outdoor fundraising event will be part of the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation (DHCH Foundation) ‘Coming Home’ capital campaign for the new Beedie Long-Term Care Centre, the largest fundraising campaign in the Foundation’s 35-year history.

‘Supper at Sunset’ will see 250 guests enjoy an elegant long-table dinner and entertainment on the beautiful Tsawwassen First Nation boardwalk overlooking the Salish Sea near the Tsawwassen ferry terminal. The creator of the event is John Gross, the founder and CEO of Peak Products, who is also a Tsawwassen resident. Richmond-based Peak Products is one of Canada’s leading home renovation products manufacturers, and Gross and his wife Rose have been generous donors to health care facilities and foundations throughout the Lower Mainland for nearly two decades.

Serving as honourary chair for the inaugural ‘Supper at Sunset’ is Delta resident Simon Walker, the Executive Vice President of Peak Products. With Peak Products covering all administrative and supplier costs for the event, every dollar raised through the event’s ticket sales and raffles will go directly to the construction of the Beedie Long-Term Care Centre.

Also playing a key role in the creation of the event is the Tsawwassen First Nation, who has donated the use of the boardwalk for the event, with TFN businesses also providing support services.

“On behalf of our board, staff and volunteers, I want thank John and Peak Products for creating and covering all costs for this event,” said Pam Paton, Chair, DHCH Foundation. “I also want to thank the Tsawwassen First Nation for so graciously hosting us at this one-of-a-kind setting. Delta’s seniors are the very heart of our community, and this event will make a significant contribution to ensuring our seniors have a welcoming and supportive place to call home.”

“The Tsawwassen First Nation is pleased to host an event that will play an important part in supporting the health needs of elders in our community and throughout Delta,” said Chief sxʷamisaat (Chief Laura Cassidy), Tsawwassen First Nation. “We look forward to welcoming everyone to our lands this August for what is sure to be an unforgettable evening.”

“Delta seniors have made lasting contributions to our community over many decades, and we’re proud to honour them by helping to build state-of-the art homes that provide them with the comfort, dignity and long-term care they deserve,” said John Gross. “As manufacturers of home building and renovation products, everyone at Peak Products is dedicated to helping people create beautiful, comfortable and safe places for them and their families to live, and as Tsawwassen residents, Rose and I are especially proud to support a housing and health care project so close to home.”

First announced in 2023, the $179.7-million Beedie Long-Term Care Centre will replace Mountain View Manor with a 32-space day program for older adults, a stand-alone 49-space child daycare facility, and a 200-bed long-term care centre for people with complex-care needs, who can no longer live safely and independently at home. Fraser Health will construct, own and operate on vacant land at the Delta Hospital site, with construction expected to begin in 2025 and be completed in 2027.
