Ann Blaauw

Recipient
Langley, British Columbia

A retired poultry and cranberry farmer, Ann worked incredibly hard alongside her husband to achieve tremendous success. Grounded by family, noble values and a tireless work ethic, today Ann is equally dedicated to her philanthropic work. Ann’s generous gift to support the new Sunny Hill Health Centre’s patio at BC Children’s Hospital will enable children access to fresh air and nature as they heal, both physically and emotionally. Her support of Langley Memorial Hospital’s new emergency department and Langley Hospice Society’s new residence will impact the community for generations to come. Ann nurtures meaningful partnerships. None more so than that with Trinity Western University. Together they have created the Blaauw Eco Forest, preserving a pristine conservation area for Langley visitors and residents to enjoy and learn from. With purpose, integrity and quiet modesty, Ann continues to enrich and improve life for her Langley community.
