Masquerade to support Elk Valley Hospital Foundation

The upcoming Mardi Gras masquerade themed gala will raise funds for the Elk Valley Hospital Foundation.

The Elk Valley Hospital Foundation’s upcoming fundraising gala will give the community a chance to get out of the house and support health in the Elk Valley at the same time. The Mardi Gras masquerade themed event is taking place at the end of October and will include dinner, dancing, and a silent auction.

“Our mission is to raise funds to supply equipment to the hospitals of the Elk Valley to allow for better care given to the residents,” explained Lori Gadsden, President of the Elk Valley Hospital Foundation. “It’s a super fun event. We’ve been able to do very good things, and it’s not just for Fernie, we do support Sparwood and Elkford as well.”

The foundation is a charitable society that has actively fundraised upwards of $50,000 for Elk Valley hospitals over the last 12 years. Gadsden remarked, “We’ve added a lot to the care of the Valley and we’d like to keep going.

All the proceeds of the event will go towards the Elk Valley Hospital Foundation and the ‘A Clear View’ mammography campaign for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.

The Mardi Gras Masquerade is happening Saturday, October 27 at the Fernie Community Centre starting at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at Ghostrider Trading, Stephanie’s Art & Glass, the Elk Valley Hospital, or from any member of the Elk Valley Hospital Foundation.
