It was an evening of celebrating special people who have made a difference in their community – and the WDMH Foundation was honoured to be part of it!

On April 1st, the Dundas Federation of Agriculture hosted its Hall of Fame and Gala at Matilda Hall in Dixon’s Corners. Estella Rose and the late Stan Vanden Bosch were announced as the 2023 inductees. In addition, $6,500 was raised for the WDMH Foundation’s General Equipment Fund.

“Estella Rose and Stan Vanden Bosch have been pillars in our community, so it was particularly special to be the chosen charity at this year’s gala,” notes Managing Director Kristen Casselman. “We are grateful for this donation to help us purchase much-needed medical equipment to help the Winchester District Memorial Hospital team care for our patients.”

Many people are surprised to learn that the provincial government does not fund the purchase of medical equipment for Ontario hospitals. To help ensure that WDMH has the right tools to provide excellent health care for our patients, the Foundation works with donors who care about WDMH and who want to make an impact.
