Hospi­tal, hos­pice in com­pe­ti­tions for cash

North Bay Nugget - - NEWS -

With a few clicks on a com­puter key­board or cell­phone, Nipiss­ing Seren­ity Hos­pice and the North Bay Re­gional Health Cen­tre have a chance to win some cash. But your help is needed. The hos­pice’s board of directors is ask­ing for sup­port across Nipiss­ing and East Parry Sound districts for an op­por­tu­nity to win $100,000 in the na­tional Aviva Com­mu­nity Fund con­test. The health cen­tre is vy­ing for a prize of up to $50,000. Both are com­pet­ing against hun­dreds of char­i­ties to win a Aviva Com­mu­nity Fund grant. The hospi­tal said the money will be used to pur­chase “ur­gently needed lab equip­ment to di­ag­nose cancer” and the hos­pice stated the funds would go di­rectly to the cap­i­tal con­struc­tion cam­paign, which would fund the to­tal cost of one com­plete room. Vot­ing be­gins con­tin­ues through Oct. 19. Each voter has 18 votes that can be cast at any time dur­ing the vot­ing pe­riod. The 35 fi­nal­ists will be eval­u­ated by an in­de­pen­dent panel of judges. Fi­nal­ists that fail to win a grand prize win­ners will re­ceive a $5,000 do­na­tion to a char­ity of their choice.
