John Nichols 38th Annual Peak FM ~ Hospital Christmas Draw
December 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am - December 30, 2017 @ 12:00 pm| $2.00
John Nichols 38th Annual 95.1 The Peak FM ~ Hospital Draw
How the Draw began:
37 years ago, a few months before Christmas Mr. Gerhardt Breusche and his wife brought a picture of a handcrafted doll house into the Peak FM Radio Station (then it was CKCB 1400 ). Mr. Breusche hand made the house and all the furniture and Mrs. Breusche sewed all the curtains and bed and chair coverings. He was hoping to sell the doll house and donate the proceeds to charity.
John Nichols immediately thought to sell tickets in the community for a chance to win the doll house and donate the proceeds to the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital for the pediatric department.
The doll house was placed in the window of the radio station in Hurontario St and the goal for funds was set at $1400. (same frequency as the radio Station). And that goal was exceeded; the doll house raised $1488.
And so the tradition began. Since that date the Peak FM ~ Hospital Christmas Draw has raised over $818,000 for the Hospital. Please help us reach our goal of raising $40,000 this year by donating a prize and purchasing tickets.
How the draw works.
Individuals and members of the community donate items as prizes for the draw. These items are listed in the Prize List. You can watch this list grow by following the link listed below.
Tickets can be purchased for $2 each from several locations throughout the Georgian Triangle (see the ticket location list link below) and online at cgmhf.com.
On December 22nd following the 9:00am news on 95.1 The Peak FM, Volunteers, physicians and staff of the Hospital will randomly draw tickets collected and announce live on 95.1 The Peak FM the winner of each prize as it is drawn. Names will be added to the list and posted at 2pm the day of the draw to the Prize List available for viewing until Jan 31st 2018.
Prizes not collected by Jan 31st 2018 will be donated to another fundraiser for the Collingwood Hospital Foundation.
