Grass Roots and Cow­boy Boots set for Sept. 9 in Sum­mer­side

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - HEALTH -

“Our foun­da­tion board and staff are truly for­tu­nate to have the El­lises and Sum­mer­side Chrysler Dodge back this year. Be­cause War­ren and fam­ily take care of the ex­penses and tick­ets sales, it means our foun­da­tion can ded­i­cate 100 per cent of the dol­lars raised to our mis­sion of pro­vid­ing med­i­cal equip­ment for Prince County Hos­pi­tal.” Pa­trick Mc­Sweeney

The Prince County Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion has an­nounced that the ninth an­nual Grass Roots and Cow­boy Boots will take place Sept. 9 at Credit Union Place in Sum­mer­side.

Once again it will be pre­sented by Sum­mer­side Chrysler Dodge and or­ga­nized by War­ren El­lis and fam­ily in con­junc­tion with the PCH Foun­da­tion.

This event sup­ports the med­i­cal equip­ment needs of pa­tients at PCH. This year alone, the PCH Foun­da­tion is work­ing to raise $2.5 mil­lion to pur­chase med­i­cal equip­ment at PCH which in­cludes $1.4 mil­lion needed to re­fit the op­er­at­ing rooms.

“Our foun­da­tion board and staff are truly for­tu­nate to have the El­lises and Sum­mer­side Chrysler Dodge back this year,” said PCH Foun­da­tion pres­i­dent Pa­trick Mc­Sweeney. “Be­cause War­ren and fam­ily take care of the ex­penses and tick­ets sales, it means our foun­da­tion can ded­i­cate 100 per cent of the dol­lars raised to our mis­sion of pro­vid­ing med­i­cal equip­ment for Prince County Hos­pi­tal.”

Guests will be treated to an evening filled with mu­sic and laugh­ter at one of the largest fundrais­ing events on P.E.I. this fall. En­ter­tain­ment will in­clude Pa­trick Led­well, Cather­ine Ma­cLel­lan, Lau­rel Drake and Neon Moon, among oth­ers. The ticket price of $100 in­cludes a lob­ster and steak din­ner, mu­sic, com­edy, live auc­tion and a chance to win a new Jeep Wran­gler Sport courtesy of Sum­mer­side Chrysler Dodge.

“It’s the big­gest event of the fall sea­son, and we’re thrilled to be back for an­other year,” said El­lis. “The com­mu­nity has made an in­cred­i­ble im­pact through this event and since 2008 we’ve raised $4,175,000.00 for im­por­tant life-sav­ing med­i­cal equip­ment. We can’t wait to see how our sup­port­ers come on board this year.”

Tick­ets are on sale now and can be ob­tained by call­ing 902-853-7160, vis­it­ing Sum­mer­side Chrysler Dodge or by con­tact­ing the PCH Foun­da­tion at 902-432-2547 or vis­it­ing their of­fice in the lobby of PCH.
