Members of the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) Auxiliary were recently at storefronts in Barrie, Angus, Alcona, Springwater and Craighurst raising money through their annual tag days fundraiser.
The RVH Blue Brigade were accepting donations toward their $2 million pledge to the health centre’s Hearts and Minds campaign – specifically supporting the health centre’s new advanced cardiac care program and the child and youth mental health program, two services previously not available in the region.
“On behalf of the RVH Auxiliary, I would like to extend a huge thank you to the community for their incredible support of our tag days event,” says Lise McCourt, Auxiliary president. “We raised $12,586.50 over the two days toward our pledge to the Hearts and Minds campaign”.
The tag days fundraiser has been running for more than 30 years and, in that time, has raised nearly $450,000.
