Third Party Events

Are you interested in organizing a fundraising event in your community to support health care?

Fundraising events organized by community members are important to the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation. In addition to the funds raised for a great cause, it is an opportunity to make new connections within our community.

The funds raised can be allocated to an area of your choice – a department, a specific piece of equipment, an area of research – and can be done in memory of someone who was cared for by the Valley Regional Hospital, or to recognize the good work done by a staff member, team, or simply supporting Valley Regional Hospital. The reason is yours to choose.

Need some ideas? Here are some to get you started:

  • Trivia night
  • Golf tournament
  • Garage Sale
  • Cocktail Party
  • Birthday/Anniversary/Holiday Party
  • Workplace Casual/Jeans day (workplace)
  • Sports/Games Tournaments
  • Bake Sale
  • Employee Match Program
  • Recycle Drive
  • Book Drive/Book Sale
  • Car Wash
  • Chilli Cook Off
  • Pumpkin Carving Contest
  • Craft/Plant Sale
  • Head shave
  • Raffle for a vacation day (workplace)
  • “A-Thons” (Walk, Bowl, Dance)
  • Bluenose marathon (Charity Challenge)

Please ensure the fundraising activity fits with the values, mission and strategic objectives of the Foundation. Feel free to contact us if you’re unsure.
