recently stopped by Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and did more than brighten the day for the hospital's patients. Richards also made a $500,000 donation.
During the event, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation formally announced the establishment of a
Named Endowment to help purchase medical equipment to help children.
"It is an exciting announcement for our Island hospital and, most importantly, the children and families the hospital serves," said Allan Morse Chair, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation. This gift will be invested in perpetuity and the income earned each year will be directed toward medical equipment for children.
