The Kemptville District Hospital Auxiliary (KDHA)’s annual giant garage sale, Hey Day, has been their single largest fundraising effort for over 60 years. Hey Day Co-ordinator, Jolene Stover, today announced that the KDHA has stepped up to the challenge and their Hey Day 50/50 fundraiser is going online to benefit Kemptville District Hospital (KDH).

Tickets are available at $10 buys you 10 tickets, $20 gets you 60 tickets, or you can get 200 for $40. Every month, there will be a Grand Prize Winner and an Early Bird Winner ($500). Every Ontario resident over the age of 18 can purchase tickets.

For more than 60 years the KDHA’s volunteers have worked tirelessly to raise much needed funds for KDH.  Funds raised are used to enhance the excellent care that residents of North Grenville and beyond have come to expect.  KDH does not receive ongoing government funding for equipment, and relies heavily on the KDHA’s fundraising efforts to acquire essential capital equipment, such as a mammography machine, smart beds, and ECG machines, to name a few.

The KDH Auxiliary needs your support!  Help to spread the message: this is a win-win opportunity – you win and our hospital wins!  You can’t win if you don’t have tickets!
