Yarmouth Hospital WE CARE Radiothon

Radiothon

 

WOW!!!! The "call" went out and the community responded…BIG TIME!

The feeling of immense gratitude for everyone's support of the inaugural (fun-filled!) "We Care Radiothon" is nothing short of overwhelming! Every dollar donated was deeply appreciated. Thank you to the organizing committee for coordinating such a successful event. Jeff Little, Chair of the We Care Radiothon, was thrilled to announce that a total of $90,129.50 was raised!!! Although the target was set at a modest $35,000 towards the purchase of a portable ultrasound monitor for the regional ICU, in the end we were able to fund the full amount of the machine at a cost of $49,000. All monies raised beyond the cost of the ultrasound will help to purchase additional much needed hospital equipment this year.

A special thank you to the many sponsors who made the We Care Radiothon possible (see attached list), especially our presenting sponsor Y95 CJLS and their enthusiastic team. Y95 operated the "complete radio station" from the lobby of the hospital-- a first for Y95. Impressive!

The entire event would not have been possible without the dedication of the 44 volunteers who assisted --- from the organizing committee to Foundation board members answering phones, to volunteers carrying out a multitude of tasks… and Coastal Financial Credit Union processing pledges cash payments and counting coin from parking donations. What a team effort!! Our Board Chair, Greg Barro, Foundation staff Mary Surette, Heather Fleck and moi thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
