The 2nd annual Meaford Hospital Foundation Online Auction is underway. With 112 donated items, the foundation is overwhelmed with the response from local businesses. Jen Wright, the new Executive Director of the foundation says this year’s auction will help raise funds that are needed for a vital piece of equipment in the Operating Room at the Meaford Hospital, the replacement of the Anaesthetic Machine that is currently in use in the Operating room. At a cost of $162,000, the foundation knows it has a lot of fundraising to do to raise that amount of money, but with the online auction and the Christmas campaign they hope to get close to their goal. The online auctioncloses November 24th at 8 p.m. Bidders can go online to register before the bidding starts at mhfoundation.ca. (Source: Jen Wright, Meaford Hospital Foundation)
