Yorkville sponsored and attended for the fourth year in a row the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH) Foundation's National Philanthropy Day Celebration which took place on Thursday November 12 at the Casablanca Winery Inn in Grimsby, ON. With over 100 guests in attendance the Hospital and Foundation were honoured to pay tribute to the community philanthropists supporting WLMH.
Yorkville also provided the keynote speaker for the evening, Ms. Hélène Campbell. At only 24 years of age, she is a double lung transplant recipient and told the audience her ‘lung story’ and her appreciation and deep gratitude for donors … organ donors but also donors who enable medical research, advanced equipment and technology, and the many tools needed by a healthcare team to save a life such as hers.
