FUNDRAISING FOR INFANT INCUBATOR ISOLETTE
We are fundraising for an Infant Incubator Isolette for Shuswap Lake General Hospital. This piece of equipment is needed to replace the existing Isolette which was purchased nearly 20 years ago in 1995. The Isolette is used for those unstable or sick newborns, to keep them stabilized while waiting for transfer to larger facilities. The cost of the isolette is $25,000 and that will be our fundraising goal for the day!
LOCAL ENTERTAINMENT AND DIAMOND DIP
Along with a lineup of great local entertainment there will be the chance to win a diamond!….you can participate in our Diamond Dip event by purchasing a stone for $10.00 each from a bowl of water. You then take your stone to Arthur’s Gem Set Studio on Friday or Saturday to have your stone tested. There will be 199 cubic zirconas and one diamond in the bowl valued at over $500!……you could be the lucky one to pick the diamond!. The Diamond Dip is sponsored by Arthur’s Gem Set Studio and Canadian Rocks Diamonds.
FUNDRAISING GOAL OF $25,000
There will be hot dogs and burgers available as well as other treats. We will have two nurses from the hospital on hand to do blood pressure and blood sugar tests. At the Radiothon last year we raised almost $20,000 and we would love to raise the necessary funds of $25,000 to purchase the Isolette during the Radiothon. If you are unable to attend you can still make donations for the Isolette by phoning in to the Radiothon number which will be broadcast from the Radiothon or by going online and donating through our website. Come on down on May 1st and enjoy the festivities!.
