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.

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.
