Nearly $100,000 raised to date
WARKWORTH — The Bridge Hospice in Warkworth is one step closer to reality thanks to a donation from the recent community performance of ‘Steel Magnolias’.
“We are very grateful to Bev (Roy) and the rest of the cast for their generosity,” said Dr. Cheryl Gibson, chair of The Bridge Hospice’s board of directors, before accepting a cheque from Ms. Roy, one of the stars and organizers behind Steel Magnolias.
“I’m a fundraiser, I like to do this kind of stuff because I have fun doing it,” Ms. Roy said of the production.
“What better way to take people’s money than to entertain them? We are all going to be in a facility like this some day, so it’s a very good cause.”
