Best Western New Year’s Eve Bash nets big donation for OSMH

Best Western presents a cheque to Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital Foundation

The Orillia Best Western Mariposa Inn and Conference Centre’s annual New Year’s Eve Disco Inferno raised $6,813 in benefit of Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH). A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales, table sponsors and the event’s 50/50 draw contributed to the donation.

“This is the third year Best Western has hosted this fantastic event in benefit of OSMH, and we could not be more thankful for their ongoing support,” said Lisa Wanamaker, Major Gifts Officer, OSMH Foundation. “This generous donation will go a long way to improving patient care at our Hospital.”

The event was completely sold out and the funds raised will go towards the Hospital’s greatest needs. General Manager of the Orillia Best Western, Michelle Weber, says she was thrilled with the result.

“It was a fantastic evening and we are so grateful to be able to support such an important cause, close to home,” said Michelle. “We really want to thank all of the sponsors and attendees who made it such a great success. The team at Best Western are already looking forward to next year!”

This donation brings the Best Western’s total lifetime giving to over $15,000 to the Hospital. If you would like to support the purchase of vital equipment at OSMH, please contact the Foundation office today at 705-325-6464 or [email protected]
