Mixing Corvettes and Christmas Trees was a Fundraising Success
The Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation is celebrating the efforts of Lynda and Kirk Dobbs who once again generously opened their fabulously decorated home to more than 250 people in a one and a half day fundraiser bringing in $4,435 in support of rural health care.
“Our Foundation is touched by the generosity shown by Kirk and Lynda Dobbs who hosted this fundraiser for the second year in a row,” said PRH Foundation Board Chair, Barb Schoof. “This is such a fun and festive way to give back to the community and to help create a better future for everyone that our regional hospital serves."
This year Lynda transformed their home into a Winter Wonderland, featuring ten beautifully custom decorated Christmas trees and over twenty individually themed rooms. Guests were also able to view Kirk’s coveted Corvette collection as Kirk unveiled his Corvette garage for the first ever public tour. Tours were held Friday, December 16th from 5 to 9 pm and Sunday, December 18th from 10 am to 4 pm.
“As our hospital strives to advance services like our new Orthopaedics program we all benefit, so Kirk and I thought opening our home and Kirk's Corvette garage for a second year was one way we could help. It was also an opportunity for the volunteers and everyone who attended to pitch in too. Over the past two years this event has raised over $12,000 and we are proud of that,” shared Mrs. Dobbs. “Thank you to everyone who dropped by and helped make it another successful fundraiser.”
The Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation supports the regional health care services available to the over 100,000 people in its catchment area. Proceeds from the Dobbs Family Festive Home & Garage Tour are being directed to the Orthopaedic and Surgical Patient Room upgrades.
