St. Mary's Hospital/Health Care Auxiliary works hard to find interesting ways to raise funds to support our hospital.
Auxiliary volunteers up and down the Sunshine Coast contributed 61,548 hours of volunteer service in 2011, raising a grand total of $952,027 for health care equipment at St. Mary's Hospital.
Back by popular demand again this year, the Hopkins Branch of St. Mary's Hospital/Health Care Auxiliary is holding their Poker Walk, come rain or shine, this Saturday, May 26. beginning at the Kinsmen Hut in Dougall Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The $10 registration gives participants a route map and a chance to draw cards for the winning poker hand. No prior poker experience is necessary as the hand you end up with is entirely "the luck of the draw" and the registration team will figure out your best hand if you are unsure. There are lots of great prizes.
The easy walking route is suitable for children and dogs on leashes, so bring the whole family and be sure to stay for the hot dog barbecue (with all the trimmings). Drinks andlots of home baked sweets (take some home for dessert) will also be available.
It will be a fun-filled day in Lower Gibsons.
