The theme for the major fundraiser for Belleville General Hospital, a “British Invasion,” was announced at the Belleville Club yesterday.
Co-chair of the annual B-G-H Foundation Gala, Karen Baker, says the Foundation raises about one-point-two million dollars a year to buy equipment that is not funded by the provincial government.
She says the new young doctors coming to Belleville have been trained on new equipment and won’t come here if it isn’t available.
The goal of the September Gala is to raise 300-thousand dollars while dancing to the “British Invaders” such as the Rolling stones, The who, and Gerry and Pacemakers.
