Chatham-Kent Nurses in Support of Chatham-Kent Hospice


 The initiative “Chatham-Kent Nurses in Support of Chatham-Kent Hospice” organized by retired nurse, Bonnie Sunnen has met their goal! It was Bonnie’s dream to try to raise $50,000 by December 1st by encouraging local nurses, working or retired, to show their support of the project by making a donation. They did that by raising $51, 371.00!

 To recognize the important work done by the Nurses of Chatham-Kent, the nurse’s station in the future Chatham-Kent Hospice will be named in their honour.

 To help encourage donations, Bonnie also arranged for some draw prizes for people who donated by December 1st. The first prize was a week’s stay in their private vacation home in Florida. This was won by Ron and Joanne Sullivan. The second prize was tickets to a Red Wings/Maple Leafs game and this was won by Sheila and Herman VanBoxtel. The third prize was a Mani/Pedi gift certificate from Gentry Manor which was won by Jayne Park.

 Show here receiving the hockey tickets from Jodi Maroney, Director of Development is Sheila and Herman VanBoxtel. Sheila is a retired palliative care nurse.

 Anyone still wanting to contribute to this initiative can visit to make an on-line donation or call (519) 354-3113 for more information.
