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!
