Radiothon Goal: $500,000.00!
Moose Jaw Health Foundation Capital Campaign Director Dave Reidy outlines the two-year goal at the Health Care Celebration luncheon in Moose Jaw
May 1st and 2nd, LIVE at the Town 'n Country Mall. We're hoping you will join us to make a donation at the 8th Annual 800 CHAB Family First Radiothon. Last year we were able to make a donation of $182,369 to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation, topping the $1.2 million mark for 7 years of the Radiothon! And, this year, we're going BIG - our goal is to raise $500,000.00 to equip the hospital of tomorrow, today! It's all part of a two-year, eight million dollar capital campaign announced Tuesday at the annual Five Hills Health Region luncheon. We'll be at the T&C Mall in Moose Jaw May 1 and 2 for 36 hours straight. With your pledges and support we know we can reach our goal! If you have a fundraising idea you'd like to share,
to let us know. All money raised will go towards new equipment for the Universal Care Area of the new hospital, the first of its kind in Saskatchewan. CHAB's Craig Hemingway caught up with Director of Strategy and Communications with the Five Hills Health Region, Kyle Matthies, to talk about the new Universal Care Area, and got a peek inside
