After another year of the ‘Be an Angel’ campaign, the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation has raised $215,000 so far out of their $250,000 goal.

Executive Director Ashley Bentley is still hopeful that they will receive many more donations throughout December and January, but they aren’t expecting to make the same amount as they did last year — given the state of the economy.

“We’re still hopeful that we will reach our goal, but we’re still a little bit shy,” she said.

The Janet Taylor Award was also given to Moose FM during the ‘Be an Angel’ Gala on Tuesday night. Moose FM also raised $31,796.60 during the 12th annual Light A Moose to go towards the purchase of a Sterotactic Breast Biopsy in November.

The campaign started with a $10,000 donation from Spectre Energy, who still holds the title of biggest donation thus far. According to Bentley, donations can range from $20 to $10,000.

All campaign donations go to the ‘Angel Fund,’ to purchase medical equipment in the Hospital and Peace Villa Residential Care Facility.

This will help to ensure equipment can be purchased as soon as the need arises, reducing the time to fulfillment and becoming available to patients sooner.

With the $300,000 raised on their $250,000 goal, over 30 pieces of equipment were purchased — including hemodialysis patient treatment chairs, holter monitors, and an ultra slim gastroscope.
