Auxiliary silent auction raises $15,000

The successful fundraiser will go towards purchasing equipment for the hospital and lodge

On Nov. 1 at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall, the Auxiliary to Fraser Canyon Hospital and Fraser Hope Lodge had a successful 29th Silent Auction. Sharyn Harvey, our president, introduced Sylta Hellner, RN and manager of Fraser Hope Lodge, who graciously opened our Silent Auction.

We express our gratitude to all the businesses and donors and people of Hope and area for their generous support. We raised approximately $15,000.  The money will go towards purchasing equipment for our hospital and lodge and for patients’ comfort and care. We also appreciate the support of our media sponsors.

Over 300 items were up for bids, and over 200 door tickets were sold.

This year’s raffle winners are: Evan Ireland ($1,500), Chad Lambert ($300) and Georgina Rice ($200).

Kudos again for our successful 29th Silent Auction, especially to our Auxiliary members for their ongoing tireless support and everyone who participated. We could not have done it without you all. Thank you.

Mary Birchmore,

Hope, B.C.
