North Shore students create winning designs for LGH Foundation Christmas cards
Lions Gate Hospital Foundation (LGHF) is celebrating the talent of two young local artists with the launch of its 2017 charity Christmas card collection. Proceeds from the sale of the cards will help raise funds to build the new high-tech Medical & Surgical Centre at LGH.
Kaitlyn McAloney, a Grade 9 Student who attends West Vancouver Secondary and Paige Eskes, a Grade 5 student from Lynn Valley Elementary in North Vancouver, were chosen from dozens of entries to the LGHF Design a Christmas card competition.
Following the prize-giving ceremony, Louise Campbell, Vice President of LGHF said: “The designs are bright, fun and have a very distinctive local flavour. Kaitlyn and Paige did a great job and people are really excited with the designs and the cards are already in great demand.”
As well as seeing their designs in print, Kaitlyn and Paige each received a $100 gift card generously donated by Park Royal.
The cards, which are sold in mixed packs of 12, cost $20 for a single pack, or $50 for three packs. The cards can be purchased, along with handmade gift tags, at Lions Gate Hospital Foundation office at LGH.
The budding artists also made it into the North Shore News last week.
