It was a close race, but, in the end, Carefor Carl made it to the finish line first. He was followed closely by Princess Naomi, Sgt. Sapper, Hoedown Harold, Community Food Cher – and the WDMH Foundation’s ICU Irene. All of these Dairyfest cow racers had one goal – to help raise funds for local charities.
Recently, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 108 Winchester presented the racers with donations to their six local charities. As the winner, The Carefor Nor-Dun Seniors’ Support Centre received $1,000, and the runners up, including the WDMH Foundation, each received $700.
“The Dairyfest Cow Race is a highlight of the summer and we are happy to be part of it,” noted Cindy Peters, Manager of Events and Direct Mail. “Thank you to the Winchester Legion and everyone who purchased a ticket for the race. Money will be directed to our Family Care Fund.”
“We are thrilled to be supporting the WDMH Foundation with these proceeds,” added Tina Asselin, Legion 2nd Vice President/Lottery Chair and WDMHF Board Member. “Maybe next year your jockey will WIN!”
The Family Care Fund does just that – supports families just like yours’. Donations to the Family Care Fund will be used where your gift is needed most: to buy new medical equipment, upgrade existing equipment or meet other urgent needs at WDMH. We work with our donors to help ensure compassionate, excellent health care.
