Biz X Was There – 10th Anniversary for Hats On For Healthcare 2019 Campaign
Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation celebrated the 10th year anniversary of hosting its fundraiser, Hats On For Healthcare 2019. The event has raised $300,000 over the last ten years with, this year being no exception! Hats On For Healthcare was held at Windsor Regional Hospital on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
Hats On For Healthcare this year is raising funds for diagnostic imaging (x-ray) equipment for both the Met Campus and Ouellette Campus. Diagnostic Imaging includes: CT Scanning; Mammography; MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging); Nuclear Medicine; Radiology (X-Ray); Ultrasound and soon, PET/CT.
Hats On For Healthcare is similar to a dress-down day however, instead of wearing jeans, participants can wear a hat of any shape, size, or design and make a donation of a ‘toonie’ to the cause. Several companies, businesses, schools, organizations and individuals make donations in advance by going to.
Some of those registered included many departments from the Corporation of the City of Windsor; several schools including the University of Windsor and St. Clair College; Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland; KPMG; Loaring Physiotherapy; RCB Dominion Securities; Royal Bank of Canada; Tim Horton’s at WRH; UNIFOR; Windsor Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce; and many more.
“It’s always a very exciting and animated day when so many different, style hats are worn by so many donors who want to give back to healthcare.” -Elaine Snaden, Co-Founder of Hats On For Healthcare
Part of the activities included a visit by students from Hugh Beaton Public School, musicians playing throughout the morning and early afternoon (George Boden, Julie Dragich) and pizza for sale to staff and participants (provided by Armando’s).
