On November 3 a fairly large crowd gathered at the Niverville Heritage Centre for this year’s gala fundraiser.
Steve Neufeld, with the NivervilleHeritageCenter says their third annual fundraiser was a success.
“The fundraiser was held to raise money to purchase to equipment for the personal care home,” stated Neufeld. The group hopes to raise $500,000 before June. So far they have raised $260,000. “It was a tremendous success.”
While the exact figures on how much was raised during the evening are not available, Neufeld says over $60,000 was pledged before the doors opened.
Money is still being collected in support of this project. Donations can be made or rooms can be sponsored. So far thirty rooms have been sponsored.
The new 80 bed Niverville Personal Care Home is expected to be ready for occupancy in June 2013. Applications are now being accepted for residents to move into the personal care home.
