VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - Executive Hotels & Resorts is supporting the BC Women's Hospital NICU campaign by donating $200,000 to the BC Women's Hospital. The Sayani family, which started the hotel chain now comprised of 15 properties across North America, has a very personal connection with the Hospital as Farida and Noordin Sayani's granddaughters were born premature and stayed in the NICU for the first few weeks of their lives until they were ready to go home.
Farida is a member of the BC Women's Hospital cabinet committee headed by Tamara Taggard. She further supports the campaign by creating awareness and raising funds through the chain's various hotels. A cross section of the chain's guests, patrons, associates and suppliers supported this campaign by donating funds. Total donations collected are $50,000 through the Executive Hotels & Resorts Campaign for NICU and the Sayani family matched the funds, dollar for dollar.
The NICU campaign is now in the public phase of the campaign through CTV's broadcast news this week from May 5th to May 9th. Every dollar donated during this week by the general public will be matched by Executive Hotels & Resorts. The Sayani family will match dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000.
"NICU does excellent work in helping newborn babies and saving the lives of many tiny babies," says Farida Sayani. "It is a great cause - it is through programs such as this that BC Women's Hospital Foundation can keep their equipment updated and continue to deliver life-saving critical care through their state of the art neonatal technologies."
