As lead sponsor of the 4th Annual Valentine’s Dance, TD Bank recently presented the Valentine’s Dance Committee with a cheque for $2,500 to help upgrade and replace equipment at the Pembroke Regional Hospital.
“Access to comprehensive health care is something that affects us all,” shared Brian Gillespie, of TD Bank Pembroke Branch Manager. “TD remains dedicated to working with community partners in improving our area for families and individuals alike.”
Held on a particularly cold February 13th at the Travelodge Pembroke, the lively evening featured the local Joe Lance Band and Ottawa’s own Me & Him. Between dancing the night away and enjoying mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres, guests participated in the silent auction featuring an incredible array of prizes donated by local businesses.
Thanks to attendees, sponsors and the silent auction donors, the Valentine’s Dance Committee raised over $10,000 that can now be invested in regional health care services to better serve the 100,000 person catchment area of the Pembroke Regional Hospital.
Receiving the gift were PRHF Board Member and Valentine’s Dance Committee Co-Chair Eli Boucher and PRHF Fundraising and Development Assistant Sarah Neadow. “The dance is a highlight during the long winter months, offering a personalized experience for our guests,” Miss Neadow said. “We are grateful for everyone who braved the cold and made the night an incredible success.”
The Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation is currently fundraising to upgrade and replace equipment across departments. For more information, please contact the PRHF Office at (613) 732-2811 ext. 7408 or email [email protected] today.
