Though the COVID-19 pandemic has made public large-scale events like the annual Belleville General Hospital Foundation (BGHF) Gala impossible to host, organizers did not throw in the towel. Instead BGHF pivoted and hosted an “UnGala Gala” on Wednesday night. Over 120 viewers joined online to pledge over $163,000 for priority medical equipment at Quinte Health Care – Belleville General Hospital.
BGHF’s “UnGala” invited the public to an online auction that ran from Dec 7th and wrapped up Dec 16th. The Foundation also livestreamed a “Fund a Need” segment with host Mark Philbin of 95.5 Hits FM that featured special guests from around the community, including a behind the scenes look at the oncology and ICU departments at the hospital.
Belleville General Hospital Foundation Executive Director Steve Cook says, “In these unprecedented times BGHF has had to evolve and adapt rapidly, looking to alternative methods in order to meet our fundraising goals. We still have our yearly commitment to QHC to provide much needed medical equipment of which we have already given $1.5m.”
Cook went on to say, “Our community has shown tremendous support to our hospital not just during the pandemic but all year long. We appreciate everyone who bid on auction items, donated an item or made a pledge during the livestream fundraiser. Together we are keeping our hospital strong.”
