Fifth Bluegrass festival supports Picton hospital equipment needs

The Quinte’s Isle Bluegrass Celebration will draw talent from near and fair for the fifth annual fundraiser for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital equipment needs.

The celebration, located on Pebble Beach at Quinte’s Isle Campark, is set for the weekend of May 31 – June 2 and features 100 per cent Canadian Bluegrass talent from all over Ontario. Acts appearing this year include Hard Ryde, Concession 23, Blue River Band, Bill MacDonald, Sweetgrass, Maple Hill, Acoustical Strings, Jim Hayward and Willowridge and Higher Ground.

There will also be a silent auction on site. Weekend passes, including rough camping are available as well as day passes. Throughout the weekend, food will be provided by the Cherry Valley Lions Club.

“When wonderful people gather, with a common passion it can only be amazing.Bluegrass is more than a genre of music, it is a lifestyle and family. Come see for yourself,” said Melissa Sherman, organizer of the celebration. “Again this year, the Quinte’s Isle Bluegrass Celebration is pleased to support Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital through donating the proceeds from the accompanying silent auction to the PECMH Foundation to support priority medical equipment needs at Picton Hospital. Since 2010, the Quinte’s Isle Bluegrass Celebration has donated over $1,700 to the PECMH Foundation.”

The PECMH Foundation supports the hospital by raising funds and awareness of the need to assist in the provision of priority medical equipment and services for all patients and members of the community. It is through the generosity of donors that the County’s doctors, nurses and technologists can provide quality health care to the patients at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital by purchasing state-of-the-art medical equipment.

“This type of community support is vital as the government does not provide funds to purchase medical equipment. It has always been the responsibility of the community, through the Foundation’s fundraising efforts, to fund capital medical equipment needs,” said Anna Marie Ferguson, executive directore of the PECMH Foundation. “It is because of organizations like Quinte’s Isle Bluegrass, that the Foundation is able to fulfill its mission of raising money to advance health care for the people of Prince Edward County.”
