Simcoe, ON – The Simcoe Knights of Columbus, Martyrs Council 4502 are the latest community group to support the Norfolk General Hospital operating room revitalization project with a $500.00 donation to the NGH Foundation.

“This isn’t everyday equipment that you can pick up at the hardware store,” said Jim Vynckier, Grand Knight, who shares the clubs interest in supporting local health care. “We’ll all need this hospital at some point in our lives.”

Jim Vynckier and George Lubrick, Simcoe Knights, financial secretary, personally delivered their donation to NGH and brought warm greetings on behalf of their club to Kelly Isfan, NGH CEO. They expressed gratitude to all the health care professionals at NGH.

“We appreciate the fundraising efforts of the Simcoe Knights of Columbus and thank them for helping us equip our surgical team with the tools they need,” said Isfan.

Proceeds raised by the Simcoe Knights are generated through Monday Night Bingo’s which are held the second, third and fourth Monday’s of the month at the Royal Canadian Legion in Simcoe.
