Shine Your Light Sunflower Tour

Leona and the children have planted the sunflowers!  This summer, we want to gather more people than ever together for the Shine Your Light Sunflower Tour!  The tour is happening on Saturday, August 20th from 9:00am - 6:00pm (last time slot is 5:00pm) on the Ottens Farm near Moorefield.  This year each time slot will have 10 available time slots of 5 people each. Donation amount for each time slot is set at $50 for each group of up to 5 people.  Babes under 2 are allowed, and will not count towards your group of 5. 

There will be an optional "Homegrown and Handmade Market" at the farm too...bring cash if you'd like to purchase something to take home!  Local musicians will share their talents, there will be food available for purchase, and fun for the kids. This event will run "rain or shine"!  As the Ottens Family is considering the $50 a donation to the Palmerston and District Hospital Foundation, your address is needed to provide a tax receipt following the event.  

Thank you for helping us to share the gift of a beautiful, rural experience with friends and family, while we support our local hospital.  Funds raised will be used to purchase an ECG machine needed in the Emergency Room.

CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon 2022

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.  

This year the goal is to raise $125,000 for two colonoscopes and one gastroscope for Surgical Services.  It's through your support that we can purchase this needed equipment.  You can donate a number of ways; call in a pledge during Radiothon to CKNX at 1-877-227-3486 on October 15th, drop off your pledge at your local bank or our hospital's admitting desk, or by clicking here to donate through our website. 

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. 



Annual Starlight Gala

Usually the premier fundraising and social event of the year, our Annual Starlight Gala has not been able to be held in its usual format for the last three years.  In 2021 & 2022 we planned events with a "Gala flavour" including our popular Online Auction and sold out Take Out Dinner.  We are grateful to those who supported these new fundraising efforts.

We are hoping to hold an in-person event later in 2022.
