Scotiabank Donates $10,000 to Black & White Gala

(Pembroke) A community focused bank through and through, Scotiabank has donated a $10,000 Gift of Humanity to the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation’s Black & White Gala. To date, in addition to selling tickets, Scotiabank has donated over $140,000 to the annual signature event. With tickets already over forty percent sold, the diamond themed Gala is proving to be Renfrew County’s Fall Season’s premiere event.

“We thrive as our community thrives,” shared Branch Manager John Becvar. “The Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation’s Black & White Gala is one way for us to give back as a community bank. Our investment in the hospital helps us invest in the wellbeing of everyone in Renfrew County,” continued John.
Jointly announcing the sale of tickets at Scotiabank were Gala Committee Members Karen Roosen, Donna Farrell and Chairperson Lisa Edmonds.
