Current & Upcoming Events

Tickets for the Twenty-First Starlight Gala - May 25, 2024 in Harriston

Gala Sponsorship Campaign is in motion from January 1st – March 22nd.  Sponsorships are available starting at $3000, and if you are interested in sponsoring a table please email Dale Franklin at [email protected]

Individual tickets for Gala are priced at $150 each, and are distributed beginning April 1st, BUT you may request a spot on the ticket wait list now. Emails MUST be directed to [email protected] so that tickets can be distributed in the order that the requests were sent in. People who request tickets will not hear from the ticket chair until April 1st at the earliest (unless they have a question about your request for tickets).  Tickets are not guaranteed until all the sponsor tickets have been distributed and we determine the number of individual tickets available.

The ticket wait list is the only way to reserve individual tickets. Our Starlight Gala is always a sell out, and if you would like tickets, we recommend you email your request early to avoid disappointment.  If you have a group that would like to sit together, please have 1 person email the request for the table (we can split payment and tax receipt details).

We are looking forward to an exciting evening with all our guests, as we celebrate the Twenty-First Starlight Gala in support of our local hospital.

CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon 2023

Held on the third Saturday in October, the Health Care Heroes Radiothon raises funds for local area hospitals. 

During Radiothon, tune in to the broadcast all day on AM920 and, or catch updates on the hour on 101.7 The One and Cool 94.5.  Listeners will hear heartwarming patient stories and descriptions of equipment needed at each participating hospital.  

For 2023, the goal was to raise $175,000 towards our $8 million goal for our MRI Campaign, and we met our goal!  Thank you to everyone who donated to Radiothon 2023! Last year we raised over $167,000 which enabled us to purchase two colonoscopes and one gastroscope for Surgical Services.  We cannot thank our community enough for the generosity shown to this campaign and our hospital.  It's through your support that we can purchase this needed equipment.  

More information about the CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon can be found here.  Be part of local healthcare in your community and support the Foundation through the Radiothon. 


Twentieth Starlight Gala

We couldn't be more pleased to announce that our Twentieth Starlight Gala -  The Roaring Twenties - raised over $320,000, enabling us to purchase the new Chemistry Analyzer for the Lab!!  Our generous community has once again exceeded our expectations, and we couldn't be more grateful for all the support.  Thank you!!

The profit from each Gala is directed to the highest priority needs of the hospital.  Our Gala fundraising efforts will be focused on ensuring that our medical professionals receive the vitally needed equipment.  Without the fundraising efforts of the Foundation and the support of our communities, we would be unable to ensure that our hospital has the best equipment possible to care for our patients.  Our Foundation is committed to supporting our hospital in its quest for excellence in rural health care and providing "Quality Care Close To Home".
