"It truly was a tremendous outpouring of generosity from listeners in the Canadian Sikh community. Word spread quickly and we have had inquiries about support for our new hospital from as far away as Vancouver and Texas," Maureen Flanagan Pool, director of development and new initiatives for the foundation said.

"We had calls coming in from across the Greater Toronto Area and from as far away as London, Cambridge and Ottawa," Pool added.
