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.

Reflecting on this past year, I feel a deep sense of pride. I am proud of our healthcare workers that continue to deliver exceptional patient care in the face of a public health crisis, and I am proud to be part of a community that continues to support our hospital during these challenging times.


As our Operating Statement indicates, we had another successful fiscal year January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020. Bequests, donations and our fundraising initiatives amounted to approximately $1.26 million in revenue. Whether it is a monthly donation or a legacy gift, your first time donating or an annual contribution in memory of a loved one, we are humbled that individuals and businesses continue to make meaningful donations to the Foundation.


In November 2020, the Woodstock Hospital Foundation launched a new and exciting fundraising initiative. The online 50/50 raffle is a great opportunity for our community to support our hospital while also having fun, with a chance of winning a substantial jackpot. I would like to acknowledge our creative Foundation staff, who found another way to raise funds for our hospital, in place of larger events that had to be altered or cancelled due to the pandemic.


The Dairy Capital Run is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year! The run will be a virtual format once again, with participants invited to complete their race on any trail they want from May 30 to June 30. Just like last year, everyone who registers for the run will be entered to win some great prizes and participate in different challenges.


I am also excited to announce the return of the Foundation’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament. The Foundation and Golf Tournament Committee has been working with Craigowan Golf Club to ensure a fun, safe event that follows public health guidelines. New this year, instead of a formal dinner, golfers will get to enjoy some delicious food at different stations throughout the golf course. We look forward to some friendly competition and a lot of fun on June 16, 2021.


I would like acknowledge and thank the Foundation Board members for their continued involvement in raising funds for our hospital. A special thank you to Lisa Ross who is completing three years on the Board, and Ann Ash for serving nine years on the Board.


I conclude by thanking our generous community for supporting the Woodstock Hospital Foundation. You are helping to ensure that we have the funds available to purchase new equipment and technology for our hospital. By updating our equipment, we can ensure that patients in Oxford County are receiving high quality healthcare services and programs, close to home.


Thank you.
