Catch the Ace

Due to the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, the Chapleau General Hospital Foundation has decided to temporarily put its Catch the Ace raffle on hold. We will inform the public when we are starting back up and the progressive jackpot will start at the same amount of $363. Thank you for your understanding.

The Chapleau General Hospital Foundation has started another "Catch the Ace" progressive raffle with our first draw of 2020 taking place on Feb. 12. This raffle is a fundraiser to help purchase a new telemetry machine for the hospital. Fifty per cent of all ticket sales will go towards this cause.

Tickets are $5 each and are available at Chapleau General Hospital, Chapleau and District Family Health Team Clinic, Saari Medical Clinic, Syd's Esso, Pimi Kamik, Aux Trois Moulins Confectionary, The Big Pawn Shop, Brokerlink, and Formation Plus.

There will be a maximum of 45 draws this time around. Check out the draw on our Facebook page every Wednesday at 3:30 pm.

For more information, please visit our Facebook page or contact us directly at foundation@sschs.ca or 705-864-1520 ext. 1053.


The Caring Project

Furniture

The local effort to replace furniture for Chapleau's long-term care residents is now complete.

The Chapleau General Hospital Foundation launched The Caring Project in December 2016 and successfully refurnished all 25 rooms at the Bignucolo Residence over the subsequent three years. Each room received a new low bed, mattress, dresser, wardrobe, and chair for our friends, neighbours, and family members in long-term care to enjoy.

We were able to reach our goal with thanks to United Way, various raffles, a yard sale, the Golf Classic, our first Oktoberfest in 2019, as well as many generous donations by community members.

The cost to replace the furniture in an entire suite is $7,100. Anyone who donated the full amount for a suite will have the room renamed in their honour. Donors will also be recognized in the main lobby of the Chapleau General Hospital on the Donor Recognition Wall. The Foundation is grateful for the community's ongoing support over the course of The Caring Project campaign.
