238 guests at Best Western
The Northumberland Father Daughter Disco Ball 2023 raised $24,500 to support the Maternal Child Care program at Northumberland Hills Hospital (NHH).
The Disco Ball took place Friday, July 7 at the Best Western Plus Cobourg Inn & Convention Centre, with daughters ages 4-10 attending along with their fathers and father figures. The disco-theme was clearly embraced by the attendees who went to great effort, donning sequins, bell bottoms and special matching father-daughter outfits.
“With immense joy and gratitude, we were entrusted with the responsibility of organizing this community event and infusing it with our personal touch again this year,” said organizers, Katie Traugott, Jenna Traugott, and Reese Prescott.
“From the beginning planning stages, we were overwhelmed by the generosity of our community. This event would not have been possible without our sponsors – Cameco, LiUNA Local 183, Family Dental Centre and Spoolon Manufacturing Limited – whose support was invaluable. Additionally, numerous local businesses generously provided donations, making the event truly memorable and successful. Finally, we extend a massive thank you to our community for making this a sold-out event in less than 20 hours and joining us in full spirits!”
“Reese, Katie, and Jenna organized the Northumberland Father Daughter Ball with great enthusiasm once again this year.” said Laura McCracken Ebbrell, Chair of Signature & Third Party Events, NHH Foundation. “This volunteer team’s drive to craft an extraordinary evening for 238 guests and raise important funds to support NHH’s Maternal Child Care program is truly impressive. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to them and to all those who supported our hospital through this year’s Disco Ball.”
