Host an Event or Fundraiser
The Foundation relies on support from our community to fund priority healthcare needs for all Cape Bretoners.
Thanks to your support, Cape Bretoners are able to get world-class care, right here at home!
Each year, the Foundation is very fortunate to receive many inquiries from groups, businesses and individuals wishing to organize third party events in support of the Regional Hospital. The Foundation is grateful to have been the beneficiary of many diverse events, including motorcycle rallies, curling tournaments, fishing derbies, car shows, and much more.
A third party event is a fundraiser that supports the Foundation, but is coordinated by volunteers, groups, organizations and businesses. The Foundation provides advice and support when possible, but doesn’t play an active role in organizing or planning the fundraiser.
Please complete our Event Registration Form below as the first step in planning your event and read our Foundation’s Third Party Event Handbook on our Third Party event guidelines and polices.

The Foundation will review your proposal to ensure it is in line with our mission and values, and will get back to you within 1-2 business days.

- Provide a letter of support to validate the authenticity of the event
