WINCHESTER — The Jumpin’ and Jivin’ for WDMH Gala was held in May, but the benefits keep coming – all to support patients at WDMH. In the past couple of weeks, two more donations have been presented to the WDMH Foundation in support of the Gala.
The Winchester Lions Club recently donated $3000, representing a portion of the proceeds from the liquor sales at the event as well as a large donation.
“Don’t worry, we had fun too!” said Bob Craig, who worked as the ‘bar boss’ at the Gala. Club President Hugh Bouchard agreed. “Whenever people ask, we want to help out. We were happy to round up the grand total to give a little more to the hospital.”
Later in July, representatives from Scotiabank dropped by for a tour of WDMH and presented the Foundation with a gift as well. At the presentation, Louanne Tindal from the Morrisburg Scotiabank Branch noted: “It was nice meeting staff and donors and spending time volunteering to fundraise to support all of the equipment and services WDMH offers.”
Close to 250 people attended the Gala for an evening that included lots of fun, great food and dancing, all for a great cause. “People are still chatting about how great the event was and it was months ago now,” noted Kristen Casselman, WDMH Foundation Managing Director. “We are truly grateful to everyone for your support. Our community is truly committed to healthcare close to home. Thank you!”
