Hospital campaign launched
OnFriday, the 2012 financial campaign the Memphremagog
Hospital Foundation was launched in the presence of a few of the mayors of the municipalities in the MRC who have confirmed their commitment to the campaign: Ayer’s Cliff, Bolton East, Eastman, Hatley, Hatley Township, Magog, Orford, St. Benoit du Lac, Ste-Etienne de Bolton and Ste-Catherine de Hatley. Each of these municipalities has agreed to donate $2 per citizen to the campaign, bringing the campaign’s total to date up to over $400,000, very close to the campaign’s objective of $500,000. Magog alone will hand over a cheque of $257,000.
The previous two campaigns netted $130,000, in 2010, and $86,400, in 2011; money that was collected through door-todoor soliciting and letters sent. The money raised in this campaign will be used for the treatment of cancer patients.
