Over $11,500 Raised For Hospital Equipment

An annual curling event hosted by the Foundation of the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance over the weekend has raised over $11,500 for their diagnostic imaging renewal campaign.

The seventh annual Charity Curling Classic was held at the Sydenham Community Curling Club in Wallaceburg on February 3.

Sixteen teams, made up of four players each raised money through pledges and fundraisers.

So far over $5.6-million has been raised for the foundation’s campaign, which helps provide 18 new pieces of equipment at both hospital sites in Chatham and Wallaceburg.

“We are thrilled with the support of Wallaceburg and area individuals and business that helped make the event a huge success,” said Mary Lou Crowley, executive director for the Foundation of the CKHA in a media release. “Events like this highlight that passion and raise much needed funds for our hospital.”

Matt Mapletoft, Larry Mapletoft, Erin Glasgow and Tyler Gauthier were dubbed the winners of Saturday’s curling event.
