A fundraising dinner, to benefit the Black River Hospital, will be held this Saturday (Nov. 4) at the Port of Call Hotel in the town starting at 3:00 p.m.
The event is being organised by Friends of the Black River Hospital (FBRH), a local non-governmental organisation.
President of FBRH, Eleanor Evan, told JIS News that the aim of her organisation was to raise funds to rehabilitate all the hospital’s wards. “From the funds we receive this time around, we will be making a start with the male ward,” she said.
She urged the public to support the event noting that it was in aid of a worthy cause. “We maintain as a group that it is the right of all patients to have a clean, modern, safe environment with adequate supplies and a caring staff,” she pointed out.
Patrons, she said, would benefit from good entertainment provided by a Mento band, and a tasty meal at a reasonable cost.
Persons, who wish to purchase tickets for the event, can contact the FBRH at 963-1545 or 463-6520.
