18th Annual Starlight Gala Raised Over $215,000

The 18th Annual Starlight Gala, held on May 26th, 2018 at the Harriston-Minto Community Centre, was a resounding success.  The event raised over $215,000 and reached the goal of being able to replace the Defibrillators with Crashcarts and Infusion Pumps that are used throughout the hospital.  The Gala's success is a testament to the true rural community spirit that exists in this area.  Thank you to all who supported the event, your generosity is greatly appreciated.
