The Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation were recipients of more than $2,700 thanks to Ocean Park Ford's annual Hot Rod show Aug. 4.

The annual event, spearheaded by Ocean Park owner Ron Ford and staff, drew in dozens of people to admire a slew of Ford convertibles from 1939 to 1950.

Since 2000, the show has raised nearly $40,000 for Peace Arch Hospital's cardiac rehab program.

Funds from the program go to purchasing equipment for the hospital, and most recently, helping to pay for the Centre for Active Living.
