COMMUNITY EVENTS

Community Events

The Renfrew Victoria Hospital Foundation hosts a series of Community events throughout the year and is also fortunate to have organizations, businesses and volunteers host events on behalf of RVH.  2020/21 has been a very different year for the Foundation with the restrictions in place for the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are still playing some events which will be hosted with safety precautions and following COVID-19 guidelines.  Stay up to date on our events on this site and mark them on your calendar!

RVH Foundation CATCH the ACE – The Sequel!

Well, we went right down to the end and the ACE of SPADES was hidden in the very last card in play on the board ENVELOPE #38!  It was an exciting night with WEEK 51 draw taking place.  The weekly prize winner was Mussrat Shaheen from Barry’s Bay.  Mussrat purchased her ticket at EGANVILLE FOODLAND.  Mussrat chose ENVELOPE #41 which revealed the 6 of CLUBS.  The DRAW then proceeded and the next ticket drawn belonged to GERTRUDE MORROW.  Gertrude’s ticket had envelope #38 and the ACE of SPADES was revealed.

Our Foundation team would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to our merchants and volunteers who were the reason our draw was so successful.  Our Merchants will be officially recognized on a plaque that will be displayed in the renovated Emergency Department to indicate the difference their support has made on our community health care.  We live in an amazing community.

Our RVH FOUNDATION CATCH THE ACE TRILOGY will launch in APRIL of 2022 in conjunction with Cancer Awareness Month.  All proceeds from our CTA Trilogy will be directed to a new Mammogram machine! Stay tuned for updates and THANK YOU to everyone who purchased a ticket in CTA the SEQUEL!  

 
Many folks have asked why we do not sell online or a combination of cash and online. The answer is, because we wish to continue with our vendors, physical tickets & Live in person draws (streamed via Facebook Live) we are not permitted to sell online as per AGCO licensing guidelines.
We want to do everything we can to support our local vendors during this challenging time. When you are purchasing your ticket, take the time to support local.

Our 2021 “PUT YOUR BREAST FOOT FORWARD” 5km WALK/RUN for RVH Mammography went VIRTUAL once again this year!   The Virtual event  launched Sunday October 3rd and ended on Thursday October 14th.  We had a wonderful representation of participants and have posted some photos below.  

All participants who submitted a photo doing the walk were put into a draw for a customized RVH Foundation Breast Cancer Awareness sweatshirt.  The lucky winner was Karen Hubbert.  Thanks to everyone who sent in their “Paint the Town Pink” photos.

Participants were also encouraged to obtain pledges from friends, family and community members and for every $25.00 raised, they received a ballot into a draw for a beautiful prize package sponsored by Sylvie from PICK IT FENCE in Renfrew.  The prize package was valued at over $250.00  The winner of the PICK IT FENCE gift package was Christina Briscoe.

2021 GIVING TUESDAY

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Join the movement and give.

Our RVH Foundation runs a special “MATCH PROGRAM” in conjunction with our TREE of LIGHTS on GIVING TUESDAY.  For each dollar donated with the purchase of a LIGHT of LOVE, the dollar is MATCHED by Jon Pole of MYFM.  Our goal for GIVING TUESDAY to to LIGHT UP our beautiful RENDER’S FARM Christmas Tree that is displayed in the GAZEBO in our gorgeous and festive Healing Garden at the front of the Renfrew Victoria Hospital.  You can follow us on Facebook and here on our website to see our tree being lit with LIGHTS of LOVE throughout the day.  Jon Pole of MYFM has generously donated through the GIVING TUESDAY Match Program for the past four years!  An amazing show of community support for our local health care.
