VANCOUVER, B.C -At the finish line of the Prospera Valley GranFondo, the BC Cancer Foundation announced a major gift of $350,000 from Eleni Skalbania, owner of the Wedgewood Hotel & Spa, to support the purchase of Canada's first AutoLITT brain cancer treatment technology.

"Having hope is powerful when you're diagnosed with a devastating disease like brain cancer, and that's exactly what the AutoLITT technology will offer to brain cancer patients and their family members across our province," says Skalbania, who strongly believes in providing BC Cancer Agency specialists with the best possible tools available for treating patients.
...
"The generosity of Eleni, the Wedgewood Hotel & Spa and team AutoLITT inspires me to continue our efforts of improving brain cancer treatment so we can cure more patients down the road," says Dr. Toyota.

...
Eleni Skalbania
The Wedgewood Hotel and Spa was created over 29 years ago by its Greek born owner, Eleni Skalbania and to this day, it continues to be a family-run hotel.
Over the years, the foundation upon which Mrs. Skalbania has built the hotel remains solid and consistent; a commitment to personal service, superb quality and insurmountable warmth.
Through her travels and with her distinct sense of style, she has collected fabulous antiques, sculptures, paintings, and carpets, all of which form an integral part of what the hotel stands for: uniqueness, comfort and elegance.
Providing a home away from home for countless longstanding guests, international celebrities and dignitaries, the Hotel has become respected for protecting the privacy of all its clients. The Wedgewood has set the standard for fashionable small boutique hotels in Canada.
Eleni Skalbania's attention to detail and her dedication to her guests over the years have led her to become recognized nationally with the Independent Hotelier of the Year Award.
A dedicated philanthropist, Eleni has steadfastly supported the BC Cancer Foundation, both in their research for cures, as well as the acquisition of much needed, state of the art surgical equipment. Millions of dollars have been donated or raised for cancer research through her personal support and that of the Wedgewood Cycling Team. She also supported many other charities within our community and across Canada.
Eleni passed away on September 28th, 2013, following a long battle with Lung Cancer.

It was not until Eleni got involved in the hotel business, that Joanna entered the field.

Eleni Skalbania Founder Wedgewood Hotel Vancouver
Born on the Greek Island of Santorini and raised in Athens, Eleni Skalbania came to Canada in her late teens with the challenge of learning the English language and adapting to a new world. That accomplished in a very short time, she went on to raising her two daughters while working first in the brokerage business and then in the airline industry.
In late 1977, Eleni had the opportunity to manage the Devonshire Hotel for a group of Vancouver investors. The result was a dramatic economic turnaround for the property within eight months, something she attributes to her hands-on style and her commitment towards eliminating waste and increasing operating efficiency. Her next acquisition was the Hotel Georgia where she demonstrated her ability to manage a much larger hotel. Following the sale of the Hotel Georgia in 1983, it was time for her lifelong dream.
Enchanted with her experience of the intimate comfort, elegance and luxurious quality of hotels from her travels around the world, and certain that Vancouver was primed for a similar world-class property, Eleni decided it was time to take another chance. In 1984, she gutted and re-furbished the former Mayfair Apartment Hotel. Six months later, she opened the doors of the exquisite Wedgewood Hotel & Spa.
Relying on her intuition, combined with her personal sense of colour and texture, Eleni acted as her own general contractor and interior designer. To create the ambience she sought in public areas, she moved personal collections of antiques and pieces of art from her home, while commissioning craftsmen to build custom-designed furniture.
...
Eleni passed away on September 28th, 2013, following a long battle with Lung Cancer. The Wedgewood is now owned by her daughters, Marousa Dumaresq and Elpie Marinakis Jackson. Elpie is now the Managing Director of the hotel and she possesses the same passion for hospitality and attention to detail as her mother.
