Radiothon a huge success – over $110,000 pledged


The Kin and Friends Radiothon Sunday afternoon realized a whopping $110,000 for the Burin Peninsula Health Care Foundation’s Caring Campaigns.

Funds raised will be used to support health care projects at the Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre, Grand Bank Health Centre/Blue Crest Home and the United States Memorial Health Care Centre in St. Lawrence.

Donations, big and small, made the radiothon on CHCM Radio, hosted at the Marystown Municipal Centre, a huge success.

Major contributions were received from a partnership of Suncor Energy and Kiewit Offshore as part of the Safety and Performance Record Program promotion everyday safety on the Terra Nova FPSO upgrade project last year. A cheque for $35,000 was presented to the radiothon.

The provincial government, through the joint efforts of Burin-Placentia West MHA Clyde Jackman and Grand Bank MHA Darin King, provided $20,000 for the three health care centres.

Company president Kelly Hickman made a major contribution of $2,500 from South Coast Insurance Agency Ltd., marking its 35th anniversary.

Eastern Health CEO Vicki Kaminiski attended the radiothon to make a donation of $500. Individual donations from the Kinsman Manor for Seniors in Marystown realized an annual $200 presentation in total.

Phone lines were manned throughout the afternoon as volunteers accepted individual donations of $5, $10 and more to obtain the overall total for the project.
