The Sensenbrenner Hospital Foundation is inching close and closer to its fundraising target for a second operation room at the hospital. Coordinator Mireille Dubosq says the foundation is now $9,000 away from the completion thanks the golf tournament and a surprise donation.
“We received a thousand dollar donation from a former resident of Harty, who still has ties to the Kapuskasing area,” she said. “That donation brought our total down to $9,000.
Dubosq says the foundation is hoping that local residents make a donation and help get them over the top
“Possibly some people are going to organize their own little fundraisers to raise money for the foundation as well,” she said. “We’ve seen that happen at the end of our projects. We’re hoping to reach our goal within the next month.”
Ticket sales for the hospital foundation’s next 50/50 start on Monday, Aug. 29 with the winning ticket pulled on Friday, Oct. 7th.
