XFM Presents Hospital Help Day


Each October XFM, in partnership with St. Martha’s Regional Hospital Foundation hosts an annual Hospital Help Day. This event consists of a raffle with a chance to win various prize packages donated by the community. Tickets can be purchased over the phone or in person on the day of the event. All proceeds from the sale of tickets go to the Hospital Foundation and aid in purchasing equipment for the hospital.

This year’s 2018 Hospital Help Day Raffle has drawn to a close but it was definitely one to remember! With your generous support, the Foundation was able to raise $66,190.00!

This year’s funds raised will support the purchase of a piece of equipment for the St. Martha’s Regional Hospital Ophthalmology department.

The St. Martha’s Regional Hospital wishes to thank all of our partners, supporters, volunteers, sponsors and donors for another incredible raffle.

Stay tuned for information on next year!!
