Arleen 170x170 If you’ve had a test or procedure in any one of the hospitals or health centres operated by Nova Scotia Health Authority, chances are that some of the equipment used in your care was purchased by a healthcare foundation.

In the past five years alone, these 41 hospital foundations, have contributed more than $250-million to support patient care, education and research.

On November 27, provincial health care foundations and the Nova Scotia Health Authority are coming together as a collective to raise awareness about the essential work they do to support and enhance the delivery of health care and to thank the generous volunteers and donors who make that possible.

That is until his sister, Big Giver 2016 Recipient Emma Joudrey, stepped up to announce that Alex was indeed the 2017 winner.

At 16, Alex Joudrey is a long-time volunteer of the Health Services Foundation. The New Germany Rural High School student is a familiar face at both the Foundation's Radiothon and Hit It For Health golf tournament.

Fashion committee After nine years, Fashion for Our Future has had its final curtain call at Bridgewater Junior Senior High School.

The 2017 show, featuring soon-to-be graduates modeling stylish wears from Bridgewater businesses, raised $2,340 in support of the Operating Rooms at South Shore Regional Hospital. In total, over nine years, community-dedicated students have raised over $10,000 in support of local health care!
