Annual CFOS-Sun Times Christmas Fund Broadcast Surpasses $30K

Grey Bruce | by Matt Hermiz  

Donations still open until end of January to support over 20 local charities and organizations

Donations continue to pour in to support the 79th CFOS-Sun Times Christmas Fund Broadcast, with the fundraising total now in excess of $30,000.

That is well past the annual goal of $25,000 and clear of the $26,144.50 raised in the event in 2017.

This year, the campaign by local hospital foundations to purchase a new MRI at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital received half of the first $10,000 raised, while Big Brothers Big Sisters Owen Sound and Area and the Rainbow Program for Traumatized Children -- local chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association each got $2,500.

All funds raised beyond the first $10,000 are split evenly among 20 local charities and non-profits.

You can still make donations to support the 2018 Christmas Fund Broadcast at any RBC branch in Grey Bruce until the end of January.
