Every year, a group of community-minded men come together for Shroomfest. It’s an evening of fun and fundraising. Every year, a group of community-minded men come together for Shroomfest. It’s an evening of fun and fundraising. Once again this year, the Shroomfest team chose the WDMH Foundation as one of the charities to benefit from the event – and we are very grateful. In all, this energetic group raised $123,500 for local charities and initiatives.

Recently, the organizers presented the WDMH Foundation with a cheque for $5,000 for our General Equipment Fund.  It will be used to purchase equipment such as the two new autoclaves that are used to clean and sterilize medical equipment and instruments at Winchester District Memorial Hospital.

“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,” explains Justine Plummer, Manager of Direct Mail and Events. “Thank you to the Shroomfest Board members, sponsors, and volunteers – and to everyone who attended Shroomfest!”
