KHCA Incredible Starlite Gift of $100,000 for MRI

Cranbrook, BC…  EKFH is thrilled to announce an amazing contribution to the Starlite Campaign of $100,000 by the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary and its two thrift stores (Kimberley & Marysville locations).

This is the largest gift to date to the MRI: An Image of Health Campaign to bring a permanent MRI to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital, bringing the Campaign to just over the half way mark!

“This gift is made possible because of the hard work of our wonderful team of volunteers and the amazing generosity of the entire Kimberley community,” explains KHCA President Jean Minifie.   “We are excited to be able to help bring the MRI to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital, as it is a truly regional piece of equipment that improves healthcare for all communities throughout the East Kootenay.

The Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary has made such an amazing impact on improving healthcare in Kimberley and at a regional level as well. We truly would not have the level of healthcare we do in the East Kootenay without the hard work of the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary and all those who support the great work they do to raise funds for health care.

“We are so excited to have the support of the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary for the MRI. It is always amazing to see the difference an amazing group of volunteers can have to improve healthcare for all residents of the East Kootenay. These ladies and the entire Kimberley community truly demonstrate the difference we can all make to improve health care when we come together” Cassandra Schwarz, Executive Director EKFH.


To light a large star is $5000 and a small star is $2,500. All donations of every size make a huge difference and will accumulate to light a “community star” to help us reach our goal.
