Campbellton, (NB) – It is with great enthusiasm that Ms. Kathy Carlisle donated $2,808 to the Friends of Healthcare Foundation to support smoking cessation.
This amount was collected following a ticket sale organized for the giveaway of a magnificent quilt presented by Ms. Carlisle. The happy winner of the quilt is Mr. Léonard Bujold of Campbellton.
“I wanted to ensure that the funds collected would remain in the Restigouche area and be used towards Region Addiction Services,” said Ms. Kathy Carlisle, “and Mr. Jean-Luc Landry of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation has assured me that my request would be granted.” Also, Ms. Carlisle would like to thank those who helped her sell tickets: Gail McIntyre, Doris Cameron, Clarence Huard, Linda Bergeron, Judy Gionet and Mario Boulay.
“I want to sincerely thank Ms. Carlisle for choosing to offer the proceeds of the ticket sale for the gorgeous quilt to the Foundation,” said Mr. Jean-Luc Landry, Executive Director of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation. “I am always pleasantly surprised when people of the community take such wonderful initiatives to organize fundraisers in order to support us in our efforts to maintain and improve healthcare services in our region. I invite the public to do the same, as it is together that we can make a big difference.”
