Thank you to our sponsors

Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed the great tunes of Eddy and the Stingrays for the Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor Foundation’s Spring Dance. A sold out crowd, a huge success, all due to you and our partners that made this year so much fun.

A special thanks to C.R. Gamble for presenting the band, Unposed for being our award-winning photographer, Red Oak Retirement our corporate table sponsors and to our SpotLight Dance partners; Coadys Car Care, Carleton Place Terrace and Ryno Motors. And a shout out to Prior Engagement for the linens and to the Daily Scoop for the delicious Sundae Bar.

To our amazing volunteers, Heather Pettipas, Betty Preston, Cheryl Moore, Nick Love, Ken & Joanne Beaton, Ian and Bonnie McBain, Arvilla and Dick Shouldice – thank you! Charlie Kitts for the best voice ever – our MC of the evening. And a wonderful experience in working with the Civitan Club, for your help and the great food.

The air was electric and so much fun. Thank you to all for supporting healthcare close to home.

In support of local healthcare

Lake 88 presents our first Radiothon – a 1-day on-air fundraising event to increase awareness and support for our local health care facilities, professionals, programs and services. The event features in-depth interviews with our local doctors, nurses, patients and healthcare providers. The goal is to raise funds to help our area hospitals and community health centres address shortfalls in funding for specific programs and equipment needs.

Support the Lake 88 Radiothon on May 23rd with a donation to our local healthcare partners!
