The end of the year is always a busy time for everyone. One of the Foundation’s favourite things to do as the year comes to an end is reflect back on how caring our community is. We are always stunned by the generosity of our donors and this year is no exception. Amidst a national pandemic we saw our community come together to support one another in more ways than we’ve ever witnessed before.
On October 15, we had the pleasure of hosting the 4th Annual Heart FM’s Give Thanks to Your Hospital Radiothon. With Heart FM broadcasting from their studio, we shared stories from staff, physicians, patients, and families about the Critical Care Unit (CCU). Through the support of our community and sponsors we raised an impressive $31,900 for specialized CCU equipment. Thank you to everyone who supported this great fundraiser.
We are thrilled to announce that we launched a new monthly 50/50 on November 3. We hope you will purchase tickets each month for your chance to win big in the grand prize draw and/or the early bird draws. This monthly 50/50 is a great online fundraiser that will raise needed funds each month for hospital equipment. Tickets can be purchased online at woodstock5050.ca and November’s grand prize draw date is December 4 at 10 am. I think you will agree with me, that this is a very exciting initiative and I can’t wait to watch the jackpot grow each month.
During a very challenging year, thank you for your continued support of the Woodstock Hospital Foundation. On behalf of the Foundation Board Members and staff, I wish you Happy Holidays and all the best in the New Year.
