SMGH Foundation Fundraiser A Success

We would like to thank everyone in the community who helped organize the Cirque Sublime Hospital Fundraiser held on Saturday May 2nd, 2009 at the Gemini Sportsplex.  The experience for us was exciting and one that required many people to work together.

When we started planning the event in February 2008, we didn’t know how readily everyone would come forward to help by volunteering, donating or organizing.  We are deeply moved by the commitment of the community to support the hospital and very impressed to see a full house at the show.  In total, $13,886.84 was raised for the hospital.

To each of the volunteers, we want to say thank you.  We know some of you are motivated to help because of the important cause of patient care at SMGH.  Others have been long-time friends and are always willing to lend a hand. We appreciate your time and effort to help make the evening so successful.

The incredible performance that Cirque Sublime put on would not have been possible without the tremendous support of our sponsors. Many of you returned to sponsor the hospital gala and your financial support helped to make the event a successful one.

We would also like to thank the many contributors to the silent auction and winning bidders.  Many partner companies also helped to make the evening run smoothly.

Finally, thanks to everyone who attended that night. We hope you enjoyed the incredible performance of Cirque Sublime. 

Thank you for your generous support,

Kathleen Anderson and Jen Veeke
