Dobbs Family and
Grey Gables Inn
Festive Open Houses
It was a beautiful, sunny winter’s day for the Festive Open Houses on Sunday, December 9th, with the event netting a total of $5,500.00 in support of the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation. It was the fourth year that the Dobbs Family opened their doors to the public, and the first year for Grey Gables Inn, which was a winning combination as more than 350 people took part in the event. Greeted by the scent of warm apple cider and the sound of live Christmas music, guests walked through the decorated houses, taking in all of the festive décor and sparkling lights.
Including this most recent total, the Festive Open Houses has raised $23,000 over the years for the PRH Foundation. “It’s a great way to get in to the holiday spirit, while supporting your local hospital,” said Nancy Warren, Executive Director of the PRH Foundation. “These places are breath taking and it’s wonderful to be able to share them with our community. Some guests have been coming every year, but as the houses, décor and music changes, there is always something new and exciting to see!”
Thank you to our gracious hosts, Lynda and Kirk Dobbs, and Lisa and Rigo Borquez from Grey Gables Inn, for opening their doors in support of the PRH Foundation; to our entertainers Andy Mayenburg, Caroline Kelly & Elva Merredew, the Ghost Town Cryers, Gillan Rutz, Kara Buelow and the Rockwood choir, accompanied by Wendy Hewitt, Michael Ridout, Pembroke Community Choir, Peter Boczar, Red Hot Mommas, and Sierra Levesque; to Buns Master, CANEX, Grey Gables Inn, Hyska’s Independent, Klaesis Bakery, Moncion Metro, the Kitchen Eatery and Wilkies Fresh Baked Breads for the delicious treats, and to our countless volunteers, for their time and dedication.
Last but not least, thank you to all of our guests who participated in the event – we are humbled by the overwhelming support of our community for our local hospital!
All proceeds support the Cutting Edge Campaign, raising money for the orthopaedic equipment and renovations to the circa 1950’s surgical in-patient rooms. The campaign has raised $1.65 million dollars so far, with a goal of $2.5 million. Thank you to all those who participated in the Festive Open Houses; you help bring comprehensive health-care closer to home!
