Southampton | by Ken Hashizume  

$225,000 was raised for the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation.


The Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation blew away their fundraising goal.

The Foundation raised $225,000 through their Light the Way Campaign.

Executive Director Tracy Murray says everyone was "blown away" when they passed their goal of $150,000.

She says the generosity by the members of the Saugeen Shores community has left them speechless.

New this year was the option to donate towards a new MRI machine at Owen Sound Hospital.

That goal was $100,000.

Murray says some of the residents also go to Owen Sound Hospital.

She says the MRI is nearing the end of its life and needs to be replaced.

Of the total money raised, $80,986 was from the 12-hour radiothon hosted by 98 The Beach.
