Meaford Hospital Foundation 2nd Annual Online Auction
We are about to go live with over 100 donated items the foundation is overwhelmed with the response from local businesses. THANK YOU! The timing of this auction couldn’t be more perfect as this year’s auction will help raise funds that are needed for the Operating Room at the Meaford Hospital. The foundation needs to fundraise for a vital piece of equipment, an ANAESTHETIC MACHINE. The operating staff and doctors in Meaford are fully supportive of this new purchase for many reasons; the current is considered vintage and was manufactured in 2002, and the current provider will no longer support the machine. This past year has been a challenging but successful one for Meaford Hospital, particularly for its operating room. Thanks to a strong and determined community voice we have been able to retain this essential part of our hospital and keeping care close to home. With the governments lack of funding for capital equipment items such as this, becomes the responsibility of the community. At a cost of $162,000 the foundation knows it has a lot of fundraising to do to raise that amount of money, but with the online auction and the Christmas campaign we hope to get close to our goal.
The online auction starts at 8 a.m. on November 13 and closes on November 24th at 8 p.m.
Thank you for your support! Happy bidding!
