Teresa Ludvigson, WCGHF Executive Director, left, and Ed Francoeur, WCGHF Chair, right, accept a $65,000.00 donation from Enzo Zanetti, Italian Canadian Society President, centre, for the building of a coffee kiosk in the hospital’s health square lobby.

“I came in there and I wanted to do something different, I didn’t want to just give a couple thousand dollars,” Zanetti said. “I thought we might as well give something where we can make a lasting impression rather than come back every year with $1,000 or $2,000.”

Ed Francoeur, WCGHF chair, said the Italian Canadian Society’s donation will cover all startup costs for the West Coast Café. 

“The Italian Canadian Society came to us wondering what they can do for us, and when they heard this idea they wanted to jump on board and be a part of it,” said Francoeur.
