On behalf of the foundation and hospital board and staff, thank you Lifesavers so much for your continued support even without our beloved event!  The response was truly remarkable and we couldn’t be more blessed to have our Lifesavers wrapped tightly around us! The support of our donors has kept our spirits high as we watched our busy summer event season evaporate with the pandemic.

Thank you to Lisa Paterson who went above and beyond for us this summer.  She was our voice and champion who spoke from her heart and inspired many to join her.

Thank you to our committee of Aynsley Cockshott, Catherine Konantz, Lisa Heimbecker, Kaleigh Roscoe, Kate Paterson, Dominique Kyle & Lisa Paterson whose passion and dedication to the event that never was drove us forward to our virtual outcome.

Thank you to all of our Lighthouse Families whose support guided us through the storm.

Thank you to Mayberry Fine Art who put on a spectacular on-line art sale “at the lake” in support of LWDHF and to all those who added new art to their collection!

Thank you to our “door prize” donors and to Innovair Group for donating the grand prize of the AED!

Thank YOU for your generosity and commitment to your hospital at the lake.  I cannot express accurately enough just how much your kindness and philanthropy has helped us through this uncertain time.  You are our lifesavers!

Lifesavers Dinner & Auction

The Lifesavers Dinner & Auction originally started at Smith Camps before finding its home at the Royal Lake of the Woods Yacht Club.  With many thanks to founders Bob Kozminski and Nicki Douglas and to our current and past committees for their hard work and dedication, Lifesavers has become the single largest annual fundraiser for the Lake of the Woods District Hospital.

Since it began, Lifesavers has raised over $2.5 million for capital infrastructure and new medical equipment at the LWDH.  The proceeds from the annual Lifesavers Dinner & Auction plays an important role in our partnership with Lake of the Woods District Hospital.

Our Lifesavers patrons, sponsors, donors, and volunteers continue to amaze us with their generosity and commitment to our cause. Your help not only ensures quality medical care remains available for year-round residents, it also ensures seasonal residents can have peace of mind at your home away from home; knowing that should something happen, quality medical care is available for you and your family.

We are honoured to share that last year’s 14th Annual Lifesavers Dinner & Auction held August 10th at the Royal Lake of the Woods Yacht Club raised $341,000 for your hospital.

We couldn’t do it without the dedication and support from our loyal donors, patrons, sponsors, volunteers and committee.  Thank you for your commitment!

This year at the annual Lifesavers Dinner we raised $341,000 to support the Lake of the Woods District Hospital!  That is an absolutely phenomenal achievement!  This would not be possible without the involvement of each and every one of you!  Your enthusiasm, generosity and commitment to the community hospital is amazing!  Together we are making a difference in healthcare in Kenora!
