First Grant in Territories


The Sandra Schmirler Foundation (SSF) provided a grant of $50,000 to the Stanton Hospital in Yellowknife, NWT for the purchase of a Giraffe Incubator in their pediatric nursery. Representing the SSF at the cheque presentation were popular championship curlers Kerry Galusha and Sharon Cormier. Joining them were Louise Dundas-Matthews, Shawna Tohm, and Heather Williams from the Stanton Hospital Foundation. This vital piece of life-saving equipment creates an unsurpassed healing environment for critically ill newborns, in the region.
