The recent Bubbly Breakfast in Abbotsford raised $14,000 for Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
The money will be used to purchase telemetry packs (portable heart monitors), which cost nearly $10,000 each. A cardiac unit needs several of them, and many at the hospital need to be replaced.
The Bubbly Breakfast, held Feb. 5 at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, drew a crowd of 160 for breakfast, a fashion show and a silent auction.
Dawn Chubai, host of City TV’s Breakfast Television, was the MC, while featured speaker Gail Maurer shared her personal story of heart attack and recovery.
Cardiologist Dr. Naser Sayeh spoke about heart health and the importance of diet and exercise.
