Victoria Hospitals Foundation campaign focusing on cardiac equipment

Marty the Marmot is feeling a little better after a visit to the Royal Jubilee Hospital yesterday to promote a fundraiser for Victoria Hospitals Foundation.

The Royals will support the foundation Jan. 27 with their fourth annual Hockey For Hospitals game, against the Calgary Hitmen at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre . A portion of ticket sales, 50/50 tickets on game night, and proceeds from the popular Chuck-a-Puck contest will go toward purchasing a cardiac rhythm monitor for the Royal Jubilee Hospital emergency department.

Proceeds from Hockey for Hospitals this year will support the Victoria Hospitals Foundation’s $3.2 million Campaign for Cardiac Care, In a Heartbeat: Everyday Miracles.
