Grass Roots and Cowboy Boots returns for seventh year
Event in September to benefit Prince County Hospital in Summerside
Warren and Brody Ellis of Summerside Chrysler Dodge recently donated a new Jeep Wrangler Sport to the Prince County Hospital Foundation for the upcoming seventh annual hospital fundraiser, Grass Roots & Cowboy Boots.
Warren Ellis, the founder, organizer and financial supporter of this community event, has raised more than $2.75 million in cash and pledges over the past six years. All funds raised from this event are used to purchase important medical equipment for the Prince County Hospital, a cause near and dear to the Ellises.
This year, the successful event, attended by over 1,100 people annually will be bolstered by a chance to win this new Jeep Wrangler Sport donated by Summerside Chrysler Dodge. In addition, the Jeep draw and a portion of the fundraiser will air live on Eastlink TV, 7-9 p.m. As part of the telecast, groups, businesses and individuals who have been raising funds for PCH will have an opportunity to present their donation during the event and to challenge others to do the same by calling in their donations live on Eastlink TV.
The seventh annual fundraiser will take place in Eastlink Arena at Credit Union Place in Summerside on Saturday, Sept. 12, beginning at 4:30 p.m.
Tickets to the event are $100 and include dinner, entertainment and a chance to win a brand new Jeep Wrangler Sport.
Group and individual tickets can be purchased by contacting Warren Ellis at 902-853-7160 or the foundation office at 902-432-2547.
