Niagara Motors makes major donation to OneFoundation

Dick Family

Christmas has arrived early for OneFoundation.

Dave Dick, Owner and Dealer Principal of Niagara Motors has donated $50,000 in memory of Dave and Ella Dick to OneFoundation for Niagara Health System today.

The $50,000 will be directed towards the purchase of a Stainer for the Laboratory at Niagara Health’s St. Catharines Site.

The cheque was presented at Niagara Motors, which is celebrating 70 years in business, to OneFoundation’s Board of Directors Chair, Joe Maggiolo, Mary Sergenese of OneFoundation and Dr. Janice Giesbrecht, Medical Director of Walker Family Cancer Centre.

“This very generous gift today is greatly appreciated,” says Maggiolo. “We are thrilled that the Dick Family and Niagara Motors are partnering with OneFoundation and Niagara Health to help build a healthier Niagara.”

The donation, along with funds from other OneFoundation fundraisers, will help purchase a special Stainer that will be used to stain tissue samples used by pathologists at Niagara Health to inform diagnosis of Prostate Cancer, Lung Cancer and other cancers.

Another $25,000 still needs to be raised for the equipment, so the Dick family is reaching out to the community for their support in this initiative.
