Spokesperson Carol Wiggins.

DETAILS ON WHERE THE MONEY GOES
The government does not buy medical equipment for hospitals, donors do. The Fund-a-Need portion of this year’s Heroes vs. Villains Gala will support the purchase of “tools of human carpentry”. Formally known as new Arthroplasty Power Sets (APS), this equipment will change the lives of countless patients with deteriorating joints, who struggle with pain and immobility in Quinte. The long-term results of replacement knees, hips, and shoulders will increase the health and vitality for many, along with a renewed hope for an improved quality of life and active living.
