The Iroquois-Matilda Lions Club Bingo Night at the Iroquois Legion is a lot of fun. And the benefits to health care close to home are even better!
On October 30, the Lions Club Executive presented a cheque for $2,000 to the WDMH Foundation from their Bingo Fund. The gift, in support of the Foundation’s General Equipment Fund, will be used to help purchase much-needed medical equipment such as two new Operating Room Surgical Towers.
“Our club is pleased to support this appeal for funds made available due to the support of our weekly Bingo players,” reports Nancy Barkley, Bingo Co-Chair, Iroquois-Matilda Lions Club.
“The surgical towers in the Operating Room are one of the greatest needs at WDMH right now,” explains Dr. Suru Chande in a recent letter to donors. “There are a number of pieces to each tower including a light source, a high-definition camera cord, two monitors and a computer processor. The processor provides the digital picture that the surgeon watches during surgery.
“We are so grateful to the Iroquois-Matilda Lions Club and everyone who enjoys playing bingo,” adds Cindy Peters, Foundation Manager of Direct Mail & Events. “You are truly making a difference for patients and families at WDMH. Thank you!”
