A sold-out BMP Brunch!

Participants were out in force Sunday April 21st, 2024 for the 33rd edition of the BMP Brunch! For the first time since 2019, both services were sold out, much to the delight of the BMP Foundation team. Bacon and croissants were in abundance at the Auberge West Brome, and several prizes were won in a draw held during the event. A festive, family-friendly day, in the spirit of the close-knit community of Brome-Missisquoi!

Thanks to the 340 participants on both services, sponsors, and raffle tickets, we’re delighted to announce that we raised $28,250 in benefits! Thank you, everyone!

All proceeds from our 2024 events will be invested in the acquisition of a second arthroscopy tower for the OR. This new investment, valued at over $200,000, will allow orthopedic surgeons to work in two operating rooms simultaneously. The BMP Hospital will therefore be able to schedule two orthopedic surgery rooms four days out of five, improving the fluidity of these procedures for the population of Brome-Missisquoi.

Thanks to the BMP Brunch sponsors and collaborators: Desjardins, IGA Gazaille, Papeterie Cowansville, Familiprix Lac Brome, Centre santé dentaire Lac-Brome as well as Isabelle Charest, deputy for Brome-Missisquoi at the Quebec National Assembly, the Knowlton Lions Club, Auberge West Brome and M105.

A George Bristol Award rooted in the BMP Hospital

In honor of Mr. Bristol, creator of the BMP Brunch in 1988, the BMP Foundation has presented the George Bristol Award since 2016 with the goal of promoting, developing, and recognizing the exceptional and sustained commitment of men and women who volunteer tirelessly with the well-being of the BMP Foundation and BMP Hospital community in mind.

This year, we were pleased to present the George Bristol Award to Nicole Arbour, volunteer manager of the BMP Auxiliaries Boutique and member of the BMP Foundation Board of Directors.

The merger of the Auxiliaries’ Boutique with the BMP Foundation was the occasion for a complete overhaul of the boutique’s volunteer operations. Nicole, who has been with us since the beginning of this transition, has worked hard to modernize and improve the boutique’s offer. With this George Bristol Volunteer Award, the BMP Foundation wanted to formally thank her for her time and efforts. On behalf of all the employees and customers of the BMP Hospital who benefit from the boutique’s services, thank you Nicole!

Since 1954, the BMP Hospital Auxiliaries have been donating their time and raising dollars that are directly invested in the acquisition of equipment for the Hospital. Offering patient essentials such as first-aid products, shawls and books, the Auxiliaries’ Boutique also offers wonderful gift ideas and sweet treats. In addition to running the day-to-day business of the Boutique, volunteers also organize fundraising events on special occasions.
