Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation | August 8th, 2018

GBay Gals Give sees the results of their generosity first-hand


Local philanthropic group, Gbay Gals Give, recently visited Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) to see first-hand what the proceeds from their recent $24,000 donation purchased. With some of the funds, the hospital replaced an outdated piece of surgical equipment with new electrocautery equipment and a functional smoke evacuator – vital components for surgical procedures. The new equipment helps remove air contaminants caused during surgical procedures that cut, cauterize, or destroy tissue with heat-producing devices. The remainder of funds raised for GBGH is being directed to the Adopt-a-Room project to renovate and upgrade a room at the hospital.

GBay Gals Give is a group of local women dedicated to giving back their community through philanthropy. Meeting twice per year, each member contributes $200 per meeting and the money is directed to a local non-profit. The next social is taking place October 15 and the group is looking to add to its 142-person membership. For more information or to join, visit www.gbaygalsgive.com.

Checking out the new equipment in GBGH’s Ambulatory Care department are (from left) Gail Hunt, president and CEO, GBGH; Lyn Wolfhard, GBay Gals Give; Kathy Elsdon-Befort, interim executive director, GBGH Foundation and GBay Gals Give; Jennifer Lalonde, team lead, Ambulatory Care, GBGH; Theresa Hartley, manager, Ambulatory Care, GBGH; and Cathy Siekierko, GBay Gals Give.
