Heart and Solstice Committee Honors Gananoque Resident, Jack Keyes

It was a sell-out crowd for last evening’s 9th Annual Heart & Solstice Event that took place at the home of Janet Eaton and Ray Wheeler. Threatening rain clouds did not put a damper on the festivities, which raised an amazing $25,740.00!

The Brockville and District Hospital Foundation (BDHF)’s Heart and Solstice Committee also took time from last evening’s sumptuous event to honor, Gananoque Resident, Jack Keyes for his support to the Brockville General Hospital’s Cardiovascular Program (BCP) having recently donated $100,000 to the program. Over the years, Jack Keyes has provided $224,000 in support to Brockville General Hospital (BGH).

The BCP receives no government funding and relies solely on generous community donors, and hardworking, dedicated groups such as the Heart & Solstice Committee to raise funds for the Program.


Scotiabank is the proud lead sponsor of this event matching up to $5000 for this event and the BCP Program. Brenda Hill, Branch Manager of the King St. Location is proud to boost the good works Scotiabank has been able to do in our community. Driven by the banks employees this is truly a team effort with the community of Brockville.
