Generous residents in Hope

Silent auction for the Fraser Canyon Hospital and Fraser Hope Lodge auxiliary raised $12,000

Our 27th silent auction was an amazing success.

The auxiliary to Fraser Canyon Hospital and Fraser Hope Lodge wants to thank all the citizens of Hope and all the merchants for their ongoing support for the last 27 years.

We could not have done it without each and everyone of you.

Our silent auction was held at the Hope Legion Memorial Hall on Nov. 3.

Nearly 300 items were up for bids and we raised $12,000.

Money raised stays in Hope to purchase items that will aid in patient comfort and care in our hospital and lodge.

A big thank you to Mayor Susan Johnston for opening our 27th silent auction.

Hope is an amazing place – your spirit of giving shows the true meaning of how fortunate we are to be living here!
