Christ­mas Tea and Sale this Fri­day evening

The Casket - - Local -

The In­ver­ness Con­sol­i­dated Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal (ICMH) Aux­il­iary is pre­par­ing for the an­nual Christ­mas Tea and Sale.

The event will take place Fri­day, Nov. 30, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the In­ver­ness Fire Hall

Mem­bers have been meet­ing and con­trib­u­tors have been busy pre­par­ing for this much an­tic­i­pated event.

Twice yearly, for more than 40 years, the aux­il­iary hosts a tea and sale as its main fundrais­ers. Res­i­dents from the en­tire catch­ment area, span­ning the Mar­ga­rees to Why­co­co­magh, Judique and all ar­eas be­tween, con­trib­ute and at­tend, en­sur­ing the suc­cess of the events.

This, of course, en­ables the aux­il­iary to pur­chase much needed equip­ment for ICMH.

The hos­pi­tal’s most re­cent ac­qui­si­tion through the aux­il­iary was a portable ul­tra­sound ma­chine.

The first portable ul­tra­sound ma­chine was pur­chased in 2012; this piece of equip­ment is still very func­tional and will con­tinue to be use­ful.

This new and up-to-date di­ag­nos­tic tool will sig­nif­i­cantly as­sist physi­cians in di­ag­nos­ing pa­tient ill­ness. The new equip­ment comes with a price tag in the area of $60,000.

This fall, all of the aux­il­iary’s fundrais­ing ef­forts will be di­rected to pay for this valu­able new as­set to our pa­tient care.

The aux­il­iary also has raf­fle tick­ets for sale on a Christ­mas Cheer and Char­cu­terie pack­age which will be drawn Dec. 14, ‘just in time for Christ­mas.’

The aux­il­iary ac­knowl­edged the “gen­er­ous” con­trib­u­tors on this pack­age; Larch Wood, Glenora Inn & Dis­tillery, Shean Co-op, Truf­fle­bar Choco­lates and aux­il­iary quil­ters.

The ICMH Aux­il­iary was a re­cent nom­i­nee and award win­ner at the 100 Women Who Care Ru­ral Cape Bre­ton event.

The aux­il­iary ac­knowl­edged the won­der­ful work of this or­ga­ni­za­tion and ex­pressed their ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the recog­ni­tion and award of $16,300; funds which will go to­wards the ben­e­fit of those who use the hos­pi­tal.
