CANCELLED: BLINGO with Tiffany's!

21-5-2020

Hello Blingo-ers!

 

After receiving your responses to our Blingo with Tiffany's online option, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the Thursday, May 21st online event. 

 

These events have been a source of so much fun and joy, and we look forward to the day when we can come back together again to play.  

 

We are so grateful for your support of the CEHHC Foundation, and your commitment to making health care a priority. We are working hard to lessen the impact of the pandemic in our community. As is the case for so many, the health centre finds itself in the position where the needs are greater than ever, with requests for urgent equipment coming in daily, and yet our donor community is in peril.  

 

In the past weeks we have received requests of, and provided funding for, more than $190,000 in equipment for our COVID-19 unit. This equipment is critical to COVID-19 patient care – telemetry monitors, patient monitoring, and a portable ultrasound. When motioning his approval for these purchases, Dr. Donald Pugsley, Vice Chair of the CEHHCF Board of Directors, said, "We are likely never to see a more compelling need during our tenure on the foundation board. Please proceed immediately".

 

We are committed to refund all registration fees, if that is what you prefer. However, other ways to offer your support include:

 

 1.     Turning your registration fee into a donation, and receiving a full tax receipt. If you are in a position to help and are willing to donate your registration fee to the Foundation, you will receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation. This will help immensely in allowing us to keep up with urgent and emerging equipment needs;

 

2.     Exchange your Blingo ticket for a Louis Vuitton handbag raffle ticket. In addition to this raffle, you will be eligible for the BONUS DRAW for a "Return to Tiffany Round Heart Charm in Silver on a Bead Bracelet" valued at $350;

 

3.     Defer your registration to our next in-person Bingo event;

 

4.     Request a refund. Refunds will be issued by original method of purchase. If one person booked for a group (two or more), the entire group’s refund will be given back to the person who made the initial booking. Cash refunds will be available at the Foundation office starting May 27th.

 

As we learn how to navigate these unprecedented challenges, we appreciate your understanding. If there is any information you would like on ways to support or assistance we can offer, please do not hesitate to contact us via reply email. Please let us know how you would like to proceed. 

 

We are looking forward to a day when COVID-19 is behind us, but if there is one thing we can be grateful to COVID-19 for, it’s that it has helped to bring out the best in people and help to build a sense of community. Here’s to hoping that can be its lasting legacy.

 

Again, thank you.

 

Sincerely, 

 

Your CEHHC Foundation Team

 

Sharon Crowe, Erin Vandermeulen, AJ Cunningham & Connie Castle
