Bannatyne Legacy Circle Celebration
Do you currently donate to a charitable organization? If so, we have a very important question for you —what’s your “why”?
Thank you to everyone who tuned in to CJNU 93.7 FM on Sunday, October 17, to hear from Manitobans who each shared their why—the reason they decided to support the future of health care in Manitoba by joining the Health Sciences Centre Foundation’s Bannatyne Legacy Circle.
This year, the Bannatyne Legacy Circle welcomed new members—Archie and John Cooper, Dr. Paul Galbraith, Blair Mason, and Bob Williams.
The program also shone a light on important stories from Health Sciences Centre and the HSC Foundation:
• A look at the future of surgical care at HSC, with Dr. Ed Buchel, HSC’s Surgery Site Director.
• Understanding the impact donors have had on ICU care during COVID-19, with Dr. Faisal Siddiqui, HSC’s Surgical Intensive Care Unit Medical Director.
• Dr. Chase Figley and Dr. Soheila Karimi on their vital multiple sclerosis research at HSC.
• Gwen Steiman, Chair of the Honourary Directors’ Legacy Fund, discusses that fund’s important contribution to cutting-edge research at HSC.
• HSC Foundation Board Chair, Tina Jones, O.M., and Board Vice Chair, William Gardner Q.C., discuss the history and role of the HSC Foundation.
• Bannatyne Legacy Circle member Glen Torgerson and his daughter Kelly Torgerson talk about charitable giving and the meaning of legacy.
