The BMP Foundation is delighted to announce the results of the 29th Edition of the BMP Annual Sunday Brunch. Thanks to the generosity of our partners and sponsors, as well as the 300 attendees, this event raised a final amount of $14,500. The funds will help support an important BMP Hospital Recruiting and Training Program for graduating nursing students.
Held at the Auberge West Brome on April 30 2017, the event celebrated the outstanding contribution of the BMP Hospital Auxiliary. For more than 100 years, these volunteers have made our hospital a more warmhearted and welcoming place for both patients and their families. Their assistance to the vitality of the hospital is undeniable.
The event also marked the first presentation of the George Bristol Award for Volunteering Excellence aimed to recognize the longstanding and exceptional involvement of volunteers in our hospital.
- The 2016 George Bristol recognition was awarded to a group of volunteers for their extraordinary work as sellers for the BMP Car Draw. The recipients are Helen Davis, Keith Enright, James Fulford, Claire Noiseux, Guy Noiseux, Linda Patten, and the late Danielle Rancourt.
- The 2017 George Bristol award was given to three volunteers for their sincere commitment and continued support to the Foundation. The recipients are Patricia Gilbert for her work as a volunteer for the past 20 years, Charles Fournier as a Bike-O-Thon’s advocate and pledge champion, and finally Dr. Robert Pincott as a BMP-Heritage Museum’s curator, Bike-O-Thon’s advocate, School Visits guide, and more.
The BMP Foundation has been privileged to benefit from the support of the Knowlton Lions Club in the organization of this fundraiser. A very special thank you to the members of the Club for their support and help in making this event possible.
A heartfelt thank you to our partners – Pierre Paradis, Deputy for Brome-Missisquoi, Chasco Inc., and Scierie West Brome – and our sponsors for their generous contributions.
Thank you also to the Auberge West Brome for welcoming us again this year.
