Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) threw a pizza party on June 14, 2018 to thank everyone who volunteered at Hey Day this year (held June 7 and 8). It takes about 200 volunteers to make the KDH auxiliary’s major annual garage sale fundraiser happen every year.
Approximately 70 volunteers of all ages attended the second annual pizza party, enjoying the opportunity to visit with each other in a relaxed setting away from the hustle and bustle of the fundraiser. KDH’s VP of Corporate Services, Lana LeClair, expressed the hospital’s appreciation, with special mention of Jolene Stover, Convener for six successful years now.
“On behalf of our staff, physicians, and our Board of Directors, please accept our gratitude for your longtime commitment,” she said. “Funds raised at Hey Day are used to purchase essential medical equipment for patient care – this means that your efforts put the best tools into the expert hands of our healthcare teams.”
