Foundation ready to make some ‘magic’


The Riverside Foundation for Health Care’s special events committee is looking to conjure up funds in support of district health next month.
“Making Magic for District Health Care” will take place Saturday, Oct. 14 at La Place Rendez-Vous, with tickets going on sale last week.
Given past Foundation fundraisers have proven to be remarkably popular, those who want experience this enchanted evening had better act fast before all of the tickets “disappear.”
Only 180 tickets are available at $55 each (tables of eight or 10 also are available).
The evening will feature cocktails at 5 p.m., dinner at 6 p.m., followed by special guest entertainer, “The Great Gregoire, Magician Extraordinaire.”
There also will be auctions, a penny table, fun games and ways to win prizes, and a grand prize draw.
Businesses, organizations, and individuals also can help by sponsoring the event and/or donating items for the auctions and penny table.
The funds raised at this year’s event will go towards the purchase of new beds for the Emo, Rainy River, and Rainycrest sites.
These beds are ergonomically- and therapeutically-designed for long-term care residents.
