The 25th annual Erie Shores Health Foundation’s gala “GALA25” took place on Saturday January 11th 2020.

In partnership with title sponsors Aphria Inc., Double Diamond Farms, South Essex Fabricating and Uni-Fab -This year, ESHF celebrated its 25th anniversary to a sold out guest list, and launched it’s ‘Care Happens Here’ Campaign – the biggest in the foundation’s history with a goal of raising $15 million for ESHC for a new Diagnostic Imaging Department and New
Health Information System.

Once completed, this campaign will be the greatest change to our local hospital since it’s inception. Funds raised through the course of the campaign will go to purchasing high priority medical equipment and infrastructure that is vital for patient care at Erie Shores HealthCare.

The night featured fantastic entertainment from Billy & Jody Raffoul, and the Ciao Band along with great food and silent and live auctions. The ‘Table Challenge’ segment was able to raise enough money to purchase a portable ultrasound machine that evening! Major donations continued to roll in – with a total of $520,000 raised in one evening!
