#2 Brighten their Day with Breakfast
On February 2, 2023, treat your loved ones to a memorable brekkie and a mood-boosting talk with tickets to our 10th anniversary edition of A Mental Health Morning, presented by ArcelorMittal Dofasco. This year, Métis-Cree historian and author, Jesse Thistle, will be delivering an inspirational keynote address. Jesse is best known for authoring the Canadian bestseller From the Ashes, a memoir that chronicles his struggles with addiction and homelessness while also sharing his journey towards recovery and resilience. Join us from the comfort of your home or in person for breakfast at Michelangelo Banquet Centre.
#3 Score them a Purse Bingo Spot
Love designer bags? Know how to BINGO? Great! Because on February 10, 2023, Maria Dorego and St. Joe’s Foundation will be hosting our very first Purse Bingo! This charitable event combines bingo dabbers with designer handbags, all in support of the Mental Health and Addictions program at our Hospital. Join us at St. Naum of Ohrid Macedonian Orthodox Church in Hamilton. From super-chic clutches to cross-body bags, don’t miss the chance to win a perfect purse while fun-draising for St. Joe’s!
#4 Give the Gift of Hope
The hardest people to shop for are those who seem to have it all. So, why not give them the gift of a healthier future with a gift to our Holiday fundraising appeal. This year, we’re raising funds to bring the latest in breast cancer diagnostic and surgical equipment to St. Joe’s. Items like a Digital Breast Tomosynthesis machine that provides 3-D mammograms to our patients and a breast coil to support MRI screening for high-risk cancers. Equipment like this isn’t covered by the funding we receive from the province, but you can help. And, if you act fast, thanks to the Ever Hopeful Fund, every gift to St. Joe’s this holiday season will be DOUBLED! Give $50 and it turns into $100. Give $100 and it turns into $200. Just like that. You can even send a holiday e-card to let the recipient know a holiday gift has been made (and matched) in their honour.
#5 Give the Gift of Time Together
If getting together with friends and family to raise a glass (and funds for St. Joe’s) is more your idea of holiday cheer, pay a visit to Fairweather Brewing! Every Monday throughout the month of December, $1 from each draught pour will go toward supporting our Hospital. Hoppy holidays!
