Roebuck Community Centre was definitely the place to be Saturday, February 15th! George Elliott of Augusta Township solicited some friends and organized a fundraising dance in support of the equipment fund at Kemptville District Hospital. The team helping George and his wife Cathy were Cliff and Pat Young, John and Charol Baker, John and Carole Ross, Lee and Val Armstrong and Lumpy Burnett.

Music was the highlight of the evening, with the band starting at 8:30 and the dance floor was busy all night. The Texas Tuxedos from Napanee entertained, playing excellent country music, new and old, even mixing in some classic rock.

George noted “Everywhere I went to ask for support, it was given.  I heard great stories and high praise about Kemptville District Hospital.”

Ken McNeely donated his auction services for a great assortment of items ranging from ice cream to top soil.  Pat Young donated an apple pie purchased by her husband for eighty dollars, which by the way works out to ten dollars per slice.

$6,815 was raised in support of the equipment fund at Kemptville District Hospital.

Mary Boucher, Director of Development for the KDH Foundation said that “this type of community action and generous community members like this are essential to the Foundation and we are very grateful to George and his team for this fundraising effort on our behalf.”
