Raises a handful of money for Norfolk Hospital Foundation


Simcoe, ON – It’s not what goes into the handbags, it’s what came out of them, all in support of two great causes including the Norfolk General Hospital Foundation. For the fifth year in a row the Waterford Lioness Handbag Auction was a rousing success raising $4,000 for the ‘Taking care Everyday’ campaign towards technology upgrades at NGH.


Nearly 200 guests attended the Greens at Renton on May 11, to browse through a large variety of handbags from around the world including Europe, Africa, Ireland and Italy. The handbags were part of a live and silent auction in which a total of $8000.00 was raised. The proceeds were equally divided amongst Norfolk General Hospital and the Juravinski Centre in Hamilton.


“What a creative and fun way to raise funds for our hospital,” said Julie Powell, director of development at the NGH Foundation. “We really appreciate that our hospital foundation was top of mind that night and thankful to the Waterford Lioness for all of their great work in supporting our community hospital.”


The 34 member Waterford Lioness Club thank all those who attended and supported these most worthy causes and look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
