The Orillia Best Western Mariposa Inn and Conference Centre’s second annual New Year’s Eve event “80’s Bash” raised $4,494 in benefit of Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH). A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorship and the event’s 50/50 draw contributed to the donation.

“The Best Western is truly exemplary when it comes to their community generosity,” said Lisa Wanamaker, Development Officer, Annual Giving. “The funds raised at their annual New Year’s Eve event pave the way for improved patient care at OSMH.”

The event was sold out and the funds raised will go towards general needs at the hospital. General Manager of the Orillia Best Western, Michelle Weber, says she was thrilled with the outcome.

“It was another spectacular evening at the Best Western, all while raising money for a very important cause,” said Michelle. “Our employees and guests use the services of the hospital, and that’s why it’s an obvious choice for our support.”
