A surprising partnership

The weekend of Aug. 19 and 20 will mark the third annual Haliburton Outboard Powerboat Races.  The races will be held at Head Lake Park right here in Haliburton.

The Haliburton Hospital Auxiliary will be the beneficiary of two fundraisers being run over the weekend at the park.  One will be the raffle table with lots of tremendous prizes donated by local businesses and the second is a 50/50 draw.

The organizer of the race Barb Hammond of Haliburton Lake kind of adopted the hospital auxiliary several years ago when she organized a car rally with a stop at Fort Irwin where a raffle table was set up and the proceeds were all donated to the auxiliary.

Barb has continued to favour us and as a result the Haliburton hospital has had extra funds to purchase a number of items many of which have benefited those of us who either live or visit in this community.

If you find yourself in Head Lake Park the weekend of Aug. 19 to 20 we hope you will stop by our raffle table and pick up a race program and a brochure on the Haliburton Hospital Auxiliary.
