Fundraising effort helps hospital

Urology department has received a boost thanks to two local women joining forces to support community health care.

Peace Arch Hospital’s urology department has received a boost thanks to two local women joining forces to support community health care.

Kirsten Fischer of Cut and Colour Salon held a 10th anniversary open house at her salon in April following a renovation, with Susie Brown from Silpada Jewellery on hand with sterling silver jewelry selections.

Proceeds totalling $1,000 from hair treatment and jewelry sales were donated to Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation last week.

“Events like this are a tremendous showing of community support for the hospital,” foundation executive director Jackie Smith said in a release. “We truly appreciate the initiative that Kirsten and Susie demonstrated in hosting his event.”

Proceeds from the fundraiser will help fund priority medical equipment for the hospital’s urology department during the coming year.
