Annual Elimination Draw raises over $40,000 for Welland Hospital

On January 29, over 225 people gathered to ‘Break the Bank’ at Niagara Health Foundation’s Annual Elimination Draw at the Croatian National Home in Welland. Community partners and attendees helped to raise over $40,000 in support of the Welland Hospital Site of Niagara Health.

“Our signature events are crucial fundraisers that support Niagara Health Sites and their patients,” says Roger Ali, President & CEO of Niagara Health Foundation. “Funds raised at the 2020 Elimination Draw will support Niagara Health’s Pharmacy Upgrade at the Welland Hospital, providing the best possible care for patients by using the latest medication distribution technology.”

The evening was championed by John Clark of M.T. Bellies and Michael Grocholsky of the Roman Grocholsky Team who helped promote the event and recruit an overwhelming 14 corporate partners. Through their leadership and outreach, Niagara Health Foundation surpassed its fundraising goal for the evening.

“Welland is a tight knit community,” says John Clark. “Once we told businesses about the cause, they were happy to participate and support the Welland Hospital.”

Niagara Health Foundation and Niagara Health would like to thank our generous corporate sponsors, prize donors, volunteers, and everyone who contributed to the success of this year’s event.

A special thanks to our Gold Sponsors Canadian Tire Associate Store 118, Fallsview Casino (NC Community), M.T. Bellies and Precise Parklink.
