Lady Dunn Health Centre Foundation Honours Donors

Wawa's Lady Dunn Health Centre Foundation is honouring those who've supported the organization over the last year - and supporters lost over the past year.

The Foundation held its annual Donor Appreciation Reception on Sunday, showing the newly updated donor recognition boards - including twenty-three names added to the "In Memoriam" section, all of which were read out during the event.

Foundation Chair Lina Rody notes this also comes as the organization marks its tenth anniversary.

Rody says the Foundation has raised nearly $443,000 to support the hospital over the last decade - that does not include the amount raised through the spring mail-out campaign which ends on Mother's Day, nor does it include two checks presented on Sunday: $10,000 from the Wawa Family Health Team and $2800 from the Wawa Ice Fishing Derby.

That means the Foundation's been successful in raising the remaining funds needed for the second phase of a digital radiography upgrade at the local hospital, so a new goal will be announced for the next fundraising campaign.
