FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The 17th Annual Rhyason Contracting ‘Light a Moose’ will be taking place this week, November 18th, 19th, and 20th, from 6 am to 6 pm, in the Murray GM Parking lot.

This year, NorthRiver Midstream has signed on to match the first $20,000 worth of donations for the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation goal of raising $100,000. This is a significant fundraiser for the Hospital Foundation as the current COVID-19 pandemic has affected the Foundation’s usual fundraising efforts. The money raised from previous years’ events and fundraisers have gone towards buying machines for the Hospital so residents can save money travelling for appointments for things like CT Scans. The Foundation purchased one for the Hospital 10 years ago that has helped serve over 30,000 patients. The Foundation also helped the Hospital in purchasing an MRI machine in 2017.

The community is invited to participate in the campaign by calling the FSJ Hospital Foundation at 250-793-0998 to donate VIA a credit card. You can also come down to the Murray GM parking lot and donate in person with cash, cheque, debit, or credit.

Health and safety protocols will be in place.

Murray GM will also be donating $20 from every oil change during the campaign to the Foundation.

Local Fort St. John resident, Sarah Byford, has also donated five mugs that she has designed and the Hospital Foundation has filled them with various items, at different price ranges that will be a part of a silent auction. All proceeds will be going to the Hospital Foundation, and you can see the items and bid on items on the Facebook group, Light a Moose Hospital Foundation Auction.
