Fundraising temperature rising for Picton hospital

REMAX-hospitalThe “funding temperature” will rise at RE/MAX Quinte as realtors revive a plan to help improve health care in Prince Edward County

Realtors at RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. are reviving their support to help improve care patients receive at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.

Sean McKinney, Broker of Record, along with fellow brokers and sales representatives announce a renewed partnership with the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation.

Realtors are re-launching their commitment to patient care at PECMH by donating a percentage of each real estate transaction to the foundation. In 2000, RE/MAX committed to raise $98,600 which reflects a perfect body temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit in support of the hospital. Over the next nine years, that goal was met and exceeded with $105,358.81 being raised for priority medical equipment needs at PECMH.

Today, a new thermometer was installed outside of the RE/MAX office in Picton as a testament to their commitment to support priority medical equipment needs at the hospital by pledging an additional $145,000.00 bringing their cumulative giving total up to the $250,000 mark.  The brokerage kicked off this major gift pledge with an initial installment of $2,500.

“We are excited and truly grateful to the brokers and sales representatives at RE/MAX for this tremendous support to our hospital,” said Hazel Lloyst, interim director of development with the PECMH Foundation. “We applaud them for once again stepping up to the plate and making yet another ‘stretch’ gift commitment.  We wish them every success in reaching their quarter of million dollar target and look forward to celebrating this milestone with them. This is a wonderful opportunity to work together to purchase new and replacement priority equipment for our hospital. Each and every year, we are challenged with raising in excess of $500,000 for priority equipment needs at PECMH.  The government does not fund priority medical equipment, the community does. We are very much looking forward to this continued partnership with RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. and we challenge others to step up to the plate as well.”

“We are incredibly grateful to be the beneficiaries of this significant commitment,” said Leo Finnegan, chair of the PECMH Foundation. “On behalf of the hospital, I’d like to thank RE/MAX for their ongoing and renewed support in helping us acquire new and replacement equipment for our doctors, nurses and technologists.”
