Boots & Bling for WDMH Foundation


The Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation are pleased to announce that Lois and Dale Keyes are the Honorary Chairs of Boots & Bling, this year’s premier country event in support of the WDMH Foundation. Lois and Dale – along with the WDMH Foundation Board and the 2019 Planning Committee – invite everyone to attend Boots & Bling on Saturday, June 8 at Matilda Community Hall in Dixon’s Corners.

“We’re changing things up a bit this year with a new location, an amazing meal, great music and lots of surprises for our guests,” explains Cindy Peters, Manager of Direct Mail and Events. “We’re thrilled that Lois and Dale will be leading the way.”

Both Lois and Dale say they have used the services of WDMH throughout their lives. In fact, Dale spent a month in the hospital when he was just 8-years-old after he broke his leg. “The doctors and nurses did a good job fixing me up,” he laughs.

“Never underestimate the power of good people supporting a good cause,” sums up Cindy.

“Lois and Dale are a great example of community connectors who understand the benefits of health care close to home and the importance of supporting WDMH. We hope everyone will join them at Boots & Bling!”.

The evening will begin with cocktails at 5:15, followed by a buffet dinner – including beef tenderloin and chicken catered by AJ’s Catering – and a live auction with local auctioneer Brandon Scheepers. At 9:00, we will dance the night away with local country singer Rory Gardiner and his band. Stylish country/western attire is encouraged!

Proceeds from the event go to the Family Care Fund, ‘supporting care for families just like yours’. “Many people are not aware that our tax dollars do not fund everything that a hospital needs. This event is one of the many ways we are raising money to help ensure compassionate, excellent health care at WDMH,” adds Cindy.

Tickets are now on sale for $100 each. Contact the Foundation Office at 613-774-2422, ext. 6162 to reserve your tickets or purchase online at See you on June 8!
