(Pembroke) With your help, on March 1st, phones will be ringing off the hooks at Pembroke Mall, where the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation will be holding their first-ever Connecting to Care Radiothon (brought to you by myFM, Pembroke Mall, NRTC Communications, Butler GM, Assante Financial, Frank Carroll Financial and EGM Insurance and Pembroke Mitsubishi).
Hosted by Ottawa Valley’s beloved MC, Art Jamieson and one of Renfrew County’s most popular radio stations, 104.9 myFM, the Radiothon will give listeners and mallgoers an opportunity to get to know their Hospital.
During the Radiothon, listeners can tune in to hear heart-warming stories from PRH nurses, doctors, former patients and donors.
Meanwhile at Pembroke Mall, attendees of all ages can enjoy live entertainment and shadow health care professionals at the Teddy Bear Clinic. PRH staff and doctors will also attend to meet community members and displays will be set up to showcase the various programs and services available at Pembroke Regional Hospital – including diabetes and glucose testing, stroke prevention, PRH mental health services, volunteer services and more.
When March 1st arrives, call in to support your Hospital with a pledge and possibly hear your name announced on the air!
As our community joins together, pledges to the Connecting to Care Radiothon will help bring us ever closer to the $2.5 million Cutting Edge Campaign goal to fund orthopaedic equipment and the revamping of the hospital’s 1950’s-era surgical in-patient rooms.
Stay tuned as the event grows and new guests and entertainment get added to the docket. The Connecting to Care Radiothon takes place March 1st, 2018 at Pembroke Mall and over 104.9 myFM from 11am to 6pm.
Donations towards the Cutting Edge Campaign are welcome at any time and can be made by contacting the Foundation Office at 613-732-2811 ext. 7408 or at www.prhfoundation.com
