The fourth annual Comedy on the Coast fundraising event, organized and hosted by Chad Joe and Westcoast Mining, took place last Saturday, Sept. 28, at Raven's Cry Theatre. I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to Chad and to Deb Mularchuk, for organizing another wonderful evening.
While I was unable to attend the event myself, I understand from those who attended from St. Mary's Hospital Foundation that it was a well-organized affair and a thoroughly enjoyable evening with good food, good drink and some very good laughs. I understand too that the feeling from the audience was one of great respect for Chad and support for the Foundation and the Sunshine Coast Association for Community Living — another beneficiary of this year's event.
St. Mary's Hospital Foundation has been a recipient of the proceeds from Comedy on the Coast since its inception, and the hospital now has new high-tech infant resuscitation machines and other equipment that benefits infants and families as a result.
Chad's passion and commitment to supporting worthy causes in our community is commendable, and I feel very fortunate that the St. Mary's Hospital Foundation is among the beneficiaries of Comedy on the Coast.
Thank you Chad and Deb, for all your work in organizing a wonderful event.
Maureen Clayton, chair, St. Mary's Hospital Foundation
