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 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, accounting for 35% of the annual funds transferred for medical equipment last year (2017).
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 this year’s 13th Annual Lifesavers Dinner & Auction held August 11th at the Royal Lake of the Woods Yacht Club raised $305,000 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!
Thank you very much to the Kenora and Lake community along with all of our volunteers and generous donors and supporters for yet another highly successful event. The spirit of generosity and giving surrounding the Lifesavers dinner is extraordinary and allows us to provide quality healthcare in our community.Catherine Konantz
