Spring luncheon raises $2,000

Dedicated volunteers in the community make it possible to raise money for hospital and lodge

The Auxiliary to Fraser Canyon Hospital and Fraser Hope Lodge had an amazing Spring Event Luncheon at the Eagles Hall on April 5.

Without our dedicated volunteers in our community of Hope, we would not be able to raise money for our hospital.

We raised $2,000, selling flowers, baked goods and raffle tickets.

The money will go towards a bladder scanner for our hospital and a sit to stand equipment for the lodge.

Our raffle ticket winners were: first prize – Val Howard, second prize – Ray Hehn, and third prize – Peter Kennedy.

Almost 100 people attended our luncheon and it was enjoyed  by friends and family. The people of Hope are amazing. This week is Volunteer Week.

If you ever have spare time please join our auxiliary, you will find it very rewarding.

Our website is:  frasercanyonhospitalandfraserhopelodge.com

Our purpose is to bring comfort and care to all in the hospital and lodge.

Mary Birchmore,

Hope, B.C.
