Local philanthropic group, Gbay Gals Give, recently visited Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) to see first-hand what the proceeds from their recent $24,000 donation purchased. With some of the funds, the hospital replaced an outdated piece of surgical equipment with new electrocautery equipment and a functional smoke evacuator – vital components for surgical procedures. The new equipment helps remove air contaminants caused during surgical procedures that cut, cauterize, or destroy tissue with heat-producing devices. The remainder of funds raised for GBGH is being directed to the Adopt-a-Room project to renovate and upgrade a room at the hospital.

GBay Gals Give is a group of local women dedicated to giving back their community through philanthropy. Meeting twice per year, each member contributes $200 per meeting and the money is directed to a local non-profit. The next social is taking place October 15 and the group is looking to add to its 142-person membership. For more information or to join, visit www.gbaygalsgive.com.

 


 

On June 7th, Gbay Gals Give hosted their first fundraising social at the Midland Golf & Country Club.  With more than 100 women in attendance, the group raised $24,000 for Georgian Bay General Hospital, to renovate a 1-bed patient room and purchase a new Electrocautery unit for the Operating Room. 

Thanks Ladies!
