In partnership with title sponsors Aphria Inc., Double Diamond Farms, South Essex Fabricating and Uni-Fab –On Saturday January 11th at the Roma Club, Erie Shores Health Foundation celebrated its 25th anniversary with GALA25 to a sold out guest list, and launched it’s ‘Care Happens Here’ Campaign – the biggest in the foundation’s history with a goal of raising $15 million for ESHC for a new Diagnostic Imaging Department and New Health Information System.
Once completed, this campaign will be the greatest change to our local hospital since its inception. Funds raised through the course of the campaign will go to purchasing high priority medical equipment and infrastructure that is vital for patient care at Erie Shores HealthCare.
The night featured fantastic entertainment from Billy & Jody Raffoul, the Ciao Band, DJ Qrius George, along with great food, decor and silent and live auctions. The ‘Table Challenge’ segment was able to raise enough money to purchase a new portable ultrasound machine in support of the campaign. Major donations continued to roll in – with a total of $520,000 netted in one evening.
‘We are beyond grateful to all of our generous sponsors that made Gala25 possible and raised a record breaking amount in support of our Care Happens Here campaign. Together we will make this campaign a reality. #YouHaveUs’ – Christine Colautti, Executive Director, Erie Shores Health Foundation.
