Balmoral (N.-B.) – The Daughters of Isabella – Saint-Benoit Circle of Balmoral held a Ham Bingo event on March 13 for the Together for OUR Health Radiothon of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation in partnership with CIMS FM, CKNB and CHRQ. The event made it possible for them to raise the amount of $1,521 for the Radiothon.
As indicated by Mr. Jean-Luc Landry, Executive Director of the Foundation, “We would like to say a special thank-you to the Balmoral Daughters of Isabella for their ongoing support to the Foundation and their commitment help maintain and improve health care in the Restigouche. We would also like to thank the people of our community for participating year after year.”
We would like to take this opportunity to invite the entire population of the Restigouche to show initiative like the Daughters of Isabella by also holding fundraising events for the next Together for OUR Health Radiothon, which will be held in April 2017 on CIMS 103.9/96.7 FM, 95 CKNB and CHRQ 106.9. This will be once again an opportunity to learn more on medical equipment purchases made by the Friends of Healthcare Foundation”, said Mike Doiron, Chair of the Radiothon Committee.
In closing, the Foundation’s success is due to a joint effort by us all. Each donation, big or small, helps maintain and improve health care for the people of our community, as all funds collected are invested right here, in the Restigouche region.
