Restaurants and pubs show their local love

Business owners throughout southern New Brunswick opened their patios and their menus last summer to support health care at the Saint John Regional Hospital.

The Patio Day fundraiser saw restaurants and pubs from Sussex to Saint Andrews offering featured menu items with a portion of the proceeds going to support an area of health care that was important to them. For business owners like Ruth McEachern of Knocks Café in Sussex, it was an easy decision to be involved.

“Having given birth at the Saint John Regional, I know how amazing the staff are. They did a wonderful job taking care of me and my family. Everyone I experienced was caring and compassionate and did their best to make us all comfortable,” says Ms. McEachern.

Participating restaurants and pubs raised more than $6,200 to support several areas of care, including women and children’s programming, mental health and addictions, and more.
