Light the Way campaign to kick off with a Gala fun evening

Once again, Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation is about to head into its ‘Light the Way’ campaign, a major fundraiser where funds raised help the local hospital maintain its equipment needs and helps to ensure close-to-home health care continues.

The Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation has partnered with the Power Workers Union (PWU) to bring a fun-filled evening at a “Return to Prom” gala, that will be kicking off the annual ‘Light the Way’ campaign this year.

“The Light the Way campaign is our biggest annual fundraiser so we thought it would be fun to kick things off this year with a community party. Our goal really is to get people to come out and have a great time while raising money for their local hospital. We are encouraging people to dress up however they like, whether it be old-school, retro from any decade or something more modern. We are really looking forward to seeing a variety of different kinds of outfits that night. We just want everyone to have lots of fun,” says Foundation Executive Director, Tracy Murray.

We value the work that they do to ensure that our members and their families are able to access quality healthcare here in our community.”
