“This is a sure sign of the commitment this community has to its local hospital! Not only does the winner take away an amazing jackpot, but everyone wins as proceeds will support our new Urology program. Truly a win-win!!” Said Mary Lou Crowley, President and CEO of the CKHA Foundation. “Volunteers, sponsors, and staff worked so hard to make this initiative a success. I am so proud of the Chatham Kent community!”.
Robb Nelson, CEO of AgriRoots Capital Management Inc., a presenting sponsor said, “I’m a numbers guy, and wow am I impressed by this number! We are proud and thankful to have been given the opportunity to support such a great cause. We can’t wait to see if we can break another record next year!”
“The challenge was put out there, and Chatham-Kent came through once again. I am proud to be from this area, proud to be doing business here, and when I see the community rally together like this I know the best days of Chatham-Kent are in our future,” said, Carson Warrener, VP Sales and Marketing for Maple City Homes, another presenting sponsor for the draw.
Proceeds from the 50/50 draw will support the purchase of a new Holmium laser, a key piece of equipment for the new Urology Program at CKHA.
