0News Hospital foundation combines mini-putt with karaoke SHARE ON: Bob McIntyre, staff Wednesday, Sep. 11th, 2019 (flickr.com) It might be a good idea to tune up your singing voice and your short golf game before heading to the mini-putt in Timmins this Saturday. From 11:00am until 4:00pm, the Timmins and District Hospital Foundation is holding a mini-putt fundraiser. Donor relations manager Barb McCormick fills in details. “What we’re looking to do is raise funds to purchase a new freezer for our laboratory,” she says. The entry fee is $5.00. “A brand new freezer, the type of freezer that’s needed to preserve the integrity of various types of medical samples is $10,000,” explains McCormick. So that’s our goal, ten-thousand.” (pixabay.com) Why tune up your singing voice? McCormick says that’s because your entry fee also gives you the opportunity to sing karaoke. “They will also receive a ballot into the door prize because that’s one of the more – I’ll say you need a little bit more bravery to participate in karaoke.” McCormick says the event will go ahead, rain or shine.
