Feeling the love from Radio-thon

The 11th annual Love Your Hospital Radio-thon on Valentine’s Day was a success, thanks to donors just like you.

Donors opened their hearts and showed their love in support of the New Brunswick Heart Centre. Volunteers assisted with taking calls from those donors.

Janine Doucet, Administrative Director for the New Brunswick Heart Centre, is presented with a cheque for the proceeds of the Radio-thon by Jamie Gallagher, President & CEO of the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation, and Derek Dobson, Foundation Chair of the Board.

It was an exciting day marked by a large fundraising total. More than $237,000 was raised to fund innovation and advancements in heart care, including $100,000 in matching donations from the Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation.

Volunteers filled the boardroom throughout the day, taking calls from incredible donors during the 11th annual Radio-thon.

In its 11th year, the Radio-thon is a partnership with Acadia Broadcasting. It celebrates the work taking place at the Saint John Regional Hospital through inspiring stories from patients and physicians who have benefited from the generosity of donors.

This funding this year will provide the clinicians and physicians with the most up-to-date tools and will continue to position the New Brunswick Heart Centre as a centre of excellence for heart care.
