Comfort. Care. Hope.




The weather has started to warm up, and for Hotel Dieu Shaver Foundation, that means the start of some incredible community fundraising events. The Rankin Cancer Run (virtual), the 16th Annual Nitsopoulos Charity Golf Tournament (June), and the 25th Annual Rob Petruniak Golf Tournament (July) are all supporting patient care needs at HDS. Strong community partnerships are invaluable to us at HDS Foundation, and we’re honoured to be one of the benefiting charities for these exciting events! Learn more

In this edition of @HDS Foundation NEWS you will meet our newest Board Member, Amy Cook, learn more about organizations who have shown their unwavering support of HDS, and discover how you can honour someone special with a bench, brick or paver in our Healing Garden.

For those of you I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting, I’d like to introduce myself. I have been a healthcare fundraising professional for more than 15 years, joining the HDS Foundation team in 2018. In the past six years I have met incredible individuals and community groups who are passionate about making a difference for the thousands of patients across Niagara who receive care at HDS. I have witnessed first hand the difference their donations have made by funding programs (Parkinson’s and Cancer Rehab), improvements to treatment areas (like our new accessible Sound Booth), and bringing state-of-the-art equipment (like BITS) to our rehab hospital.

I stepped into the role of Interim Executive Director in March and I’m thrilled to be leading the Foundation through an exciting year of growth! If you are interested in learning more about how you can support Hotel Dieu Shaver - from making a donation to volunteering to hosting a fundraising event and more – I would love to hear from you!

With Gratitude,

Kristina Manzi
Interim Executive Director

PS - We would love to have you join our team for the virtual Rankin Cancer Run. “Team Hotel Dieu Shaver” has committed to completing our walk by May 30. #laceupniagara
