100% of the funds raised will go to Joseph Brant Hospital Auxillary

ABOUT - Savour The Night... and Our Team.

Many of you have taken the time to participate in our events in the past and know how committed we are to ensuring that we work hard, with your contributions, to make Joseph Brant Hospital a state-of-the-art facility thats benefits our entire community.

This year it is our goal to raise in excess of $50,000.00!!!  This amount will surpass what we collected last year to the tune of an additional $16,000.00.  With your help we know we can achieve this target.

As you know, 100% of the funds raised at our event will be donated directly to the Joseph Brant Hospital Auxiliary and will be dedicated to paying for new hospital beds.  We want every patient who must spend a night in a hospital and away from their family, to have the best stay possible.  


These new beds cost the JBH Auxiliary approximately $10,000.00 each and we would love to be able to say that this event allowed for 5 additional patients to sleep in as much comfort as possible!!

As a face of the Leggat team in Burlington, I am proud to be able to have our location be the host of this wonderful and necessary event in tribute to both the Joseph Brant Hospital but also to those who find themselves or their loved ones as patients in our local hospital.  We, at Leggat, believe we have a role to play in making our community a better place to live and this event is one small way that we are able to do our part.

As the Director of Auxiliary and Volunteer Resources at Joseph Brant Hospital for 15 years I have a passion for volunteers and the wonderful work they can accomplish. The enthusiasm and commitment of this year’s Saviour the Night Committee is contagious. The goal to raise $50,000 for the state of the art patient beds for JBH is a cause that I am so pleased to support.

As a past member of both the Auxiliary and Foundation Board of JBH  I am very passionate about supporting the hospital in any way I can.  I have had the wonderful experience of co chairing our "Downtown Funk" event with Shawn Alam at the Leggat facility in 2016 at which time we successfully raised $33,000 for the hospital.

Over the last 18 months I have come to appreciate and value the place our local Joseph Brant Hospital has within our community.  Helping people and working with others to improve the local world that I live in has long been important to me.  Taking part in an event such as this is the perfect way to offer my thanks to JBH and to do my part to make every patient's stay at JBH more comfortable.

I am passionate about striving to make the world a better place, where even the smallest changes can make a difference in someone’s life.

Let’s help our fellow brothers and sisters in their time of need – where something as simple as modern beds, can ease suffering and increase the betterment of patient care.  Patients deserve comfort and should be allowed to rest and recover in decent state-of-the-art beds, taking the burden off doctors and nurses by being able adequately accommodate  everyone. 

So by volunteering on this committee, I am proud to once again take part in the Leggat Spirit of generosity and tradition, by assisting the Brant Hospital and Community, and making a difference in peoples’ lives.  A cause that I personally feel strongly about. 

 “What we have and do for ourselves alone dies with us, what we do for others and the world remains immortal”

I have grown up witnessing the value in taking the time to volunteer within my community.  I have recently seen how amazing the people and care are at Joseph Brant Hospital also.  These two situations have lead me to this group and doing what I can to promote healing and care for everyone in Burlington and the surrounding area.  I am excited to see what all of us can do for JBH at this event!!
