Charity Curling Classic

The Annual Charity Curling Classic took place at the Sydenham Community Curling Club in Wallaceburg on Saturday February 1st. The bonspiel brings curlers together to team up, sweep the ice and raise pledges for Chatham-Kent Health Alliance. The day also includes a silent auction, 50/50 draw, and prizes for the top teams and fundraisers. This year’s winning team was Tobin Richardson, Lisa Richardson, Jennifer Demars, and Paul Demars, and our top fundraiser was Wayne Negrave, raising $753 in pledges.


Christmas Wish Tree

This year’s Annual Christmas Wish Tree Lighting Campaign supports the purchase of two new patient ventilators and three new pediatric cribs for CKHA’s Emergency and Women and Children’s departments. Through this campaign, members of the community publicly honour family members and friends by making a donation to illuminate one of three different coloured tree lights in support of their local hospital. In addition to the lighting of the tree, a candle lighting ceremony is also featured to pay tribute to our loved ones.

17th Annual Parade of Chefs

This year’s 17th Annual Parade of Chefs took place on October 3rd. We were thrilled to have celebrity host, John Catucci, as well as local talented chefs, wineries, breweries and farmers at this year’s event. The event raised almost $150,000 in support of the return of the Urology program to Chatham-Kent Health Alliance.

First launched on May 6, 2019, Southwestern Ontario’s very first charitable, online 50/50 fundraiser was a tremendous success! Our Igniting Healthcare 50/50 Fundraiser raised an overall pot of $294,360.00, breaking the old 50/50 draw record of $168,000.00. Tickets were sold at various events across Chatham-Kent as well as online. Our lucky jackpot winner, Bert Vanderheide from Blenheim, took home a cheque for $149,180.00 on July 27. The proceeds from this draw went towards purchasing a new Holmium laser, a key piece of equipment for the new Urology Program at CKHA.
