Campbell River…come on down!

Hospital Foundation fundraiser based on popular TV game show

Mark your Calendars for Thursday, April 28 for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation’’s (CRHF) version of the popular game show The Price is Right at the Tidemark Theatre.

“We were overwhelmed with the response and support last year,”” says Carol Chapman, the Price is Right Committee Chair.  “”I was behind the scenes with our stage team and we knew the audience was having a great time, the noise level was off the chart and we had a blast too.”

Contestants from last year will notice a change or two, a new game has been added, but what hasn’’t changed are all of the outstanding prizes to be won. A Trip with flights, whale watching, furniture, and a camera are just a few….and the Showcase, well you won’’t be disappointed, organizers say.

The Campbell River Hospital Foundation is committed to raising funds that enhance the services and facilities of the Campbell River Hospital and Yucalta Lodge.  The funds raised from this event will be used towards the purchase of a ventilator for the Respiratory Therapy Services Department.  A ventilator provides life support by mechanically assisting patients that are unable to breathe on their own or who need assistance to breathe while recovering from various medical conditions.

Anticipation has been building since the event last year, so get your tickets early. Doors open at 5 p.m. to register and the game starts at 7 p.m. sharp. Tickets are $50 per person and are available through the Tidemark Theatre box office or you can call (250) 287-7899. Participants must be 19 years or older.
