Throughout the year, the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Foundation hosts a number of Signature Events including:


GIVING TUESDAY is a global movement that commemorates the opening day of the Giving Season. Once again this year we will partner with MYFM to LIGHT UP our Virtual Tree of Lights.

During the entirety of Giving Tuesday all donations we receive for our 2022 Tree of Lights campaign will once again be MATCHED by Jon Pole/MYFM. “LIGHTS OF LOVE” are purchased for in memory or in honour of a loved one and will light up our gorgeous RENDER’S TREE FARM Tree in our Healing Garden Gazebo tree with precious memories and putting the glow of love on our tree.  This year, we will also customize a lovely ornament with your tribute’s name on it that will be placed on the tree for all to see.

2022 Tree of Lights

The 32nd  year of our the RVH Foundation Tree of Lights tradition is planned for Friday December 2nd and we are returning this annual event to it’s origin on the grounds of the Renfrew Victoria Hospital.

This year, our event will feature a TREE OF LIGHTS FESTIVAL which will include trees lit and decorated by businesses and/or members of the community.

The RVH Foundation “TREE OF LIGHTS”, lit with LIGHTS OF LOVE purchased In Memory/In Honour of loved ones will be our focal tree and will have a place of honour in our LEGACY CIRCLE GARDEN located in the central part of our RVH Healing Garden.  In addition to the “LIGHTS OF LOVE” purchased, this year our tree will also depict the names of those remembered and honoured on beautiful ornaments on the TREE OF LIGHTS.

Our 2022 TREE OF LIGHTS FESTIVAL will commence at 6:00pm with the official lighting of the TREE OF LIGHTS.  SANTA CLAUS will be in our gorgeous festive GAZEBO and will be available for family photos.  J& J Chocolates HOT CHOCOLATE will be available as well as tasty smores.  We will also be serenaded with songs of the season by local artists.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone where it all began, on the grounds of RVH.  Our gorgeous trees will remain on site for the remainder of the festive season and can be viewed by our patients, visitors and community.

Our 2022 Tree of lights card will feature the talents of local artist JILL ALEXANDER.  Stay tuned for a sneak peek of our 2022 RVH Foundation Christmas card highlighting Jill’s artwork.

Our 2022 RVH GOLF CLASSIC was an Outstanding SUCCESS

We were excited to bring our RVH Golf Classic back to the month of June!  Our event took place Friday June 10, 2022 at the Renfrew Golf Club.  Although the day was a day of “changing Fashions” from sunny and hot attire to donning our new RVHF Rain jackets, a great day was had by all.  The day commenced with a networking breakfast at the Renfrew Golf Club and featured a talk from Sarah Anderson, Medical Imaging at RVH who informed the golfers about the new Tomosynthesis mammography machine, the focus project for the funds being raised by the  24th Annual Golf Classic.   The addition of the PINK BALL Challenge added quite a bit of humor and fun to the day as each team tried to keep the infamous PINK BALL throughout the round of golf.  Congratulations to the 12 teams who succeeded and handed in their PINK BALLS and to the team who’s pink ball was drawn from the bucket for a prize.


This year’s tourney champions much to the chagrin of long time favourites, DI AND DOCS were the team captained by Sean Crozier.
