FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The 18th annual Rhyason Contracting Light a Moose Radiothon raised $170,000 through three days, a new record for the campaign.
By the end of the second day, over $100,000 was raised to help with the cost of a comprehensive patient monitoring system in the Emergency Room and the Inpatient Unit at the Fort St. John Hospital.
The radio show was broadcast from the Murray GM parking lot on November 17th, 18th and 19th.
Businesses, families and individuals dropped off donations or phoned in to what has become a tradition in Fort St. John.
Two corporate donors, NorthRiver Midstream and Mustang Rentals, matched the first and second $20,000 with donations of their own.
Six more businesses made donations of $10,000: Shell Canada, Pembina Pipeline, Rhyason Contracting, Enbridge, Peace Country Rentals and Petronas.
“The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation is so grateful to the community of Fort St. John for the incredible support, and we would like to thank everyone who donated,” reads the release from the Hospital Foundation.
