Each year, as part of the ACCES Educational Seminars and Trade Expo, fundraising activities are held during social & networking sessions. Funds raised during these sessions are donated to local hospital foundations throughout Atlantic Canada.
This year, in partnership with the Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society (CMBES), the annual fundraising event received an unprecedented level of support: the ACCES23/CMBEC41 Joint Conference planning committee was able to raise funds for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) Foundation in the amount of $2,366. Funds were raised through ticket sales to a nearly sold-out concert event at the PEI Brewing Company featuring Gordie Mackeeman and his Rhythm Boys on Wednesday, May 9th. This success was made possible by the planning committee’s social & networking coordinator: ACCES Secretariat, Brendon McKenna.
The QEH Foundation helps the Queen Elizabeth Hospital family provide the best healthcare possible to residents and visitors of Prince Edward Island through the purchase of much needed medical equipment. ACCES and the QEH Foundation wish to thank all those who contributed by attending this wonderful social event, and we hope to see you all again next year!
