The Brockville and District Hospital Foundation’s June 16th Heart and Solstice evening was a resounding success. Thanks to the hard work of the organizing committee, the eighth annual Heart and Solstice event raised $20,000 for the Brockville Cardiovascular Program (BCP) located at the Brockville General Hospital. The sold-out event took place on Poole and Jeroy Islands on the St. Lawrence River.
The Brockville Cardiovascular Program has annual costs totaling $181,000, but does not receive government funding. Through the generosity of the local community, fundraisers such as Heart and Solstice , the BCP is able to continue supporting patients in Leeds and Grenville. Since 2009, the Heart and Solstice event has raised nearly $200,000 for the BCP.
