Christmas Forest raises $672,000 to help Further the Providence Mission

first_imgFacebook128Tweet0Pin1Submitted by Providence St. Peter FoundationProvidence St. Peter Foundation is pleased to announce that the 30th annual Christmas Forest raised $672,000 to benefit the Providence Mission of providing compassionate and excellent health care to all, with a special concern for the poor and vulnerable.One of the amazing trees at this year’s Christmas Forest was “Christmas at Tiffany’s” decked out in blue and white with goodies from the famous jewelry store. Photo courtesy: Providence St. Peter Foundation.This annual six-day event, sponsored by Titus-Will, is the foundation’s largest fundraiser and community event which brought in thousands of visitors to see the trees and wreaths decorated by volunteer designers. The trees and wreaths, as well as a number of donated specialty items, were then auctioned off at the dinner and gala to help support charity care, life-saving equipment and compassionate programs for Providence ministries in the southwest Washington region. Several trees and wreaths were pre-sold or were raffle items.“This was the 30th anniversary of Christmas Forest, and the history and tradition of this magical event was so special this year,” shares Jen Foley, a Providence St. Peter Foundation board member who co-chaired the event with her husband Eric. “Both Eric and I were so humbled by the outpouring of generosity from gala attendees, and others who made gifts but could not attend the gala. Our incredible designers truly poured their hearts into their creations which made a beautiful event to start this holiday season.”More than $307,000 of the total was raised to create the Providence St. Peter Hospital Dental Residency Program, making it the second highest total in Christmas Forest’s 30-year history. This program will provide critical dental care to the lowest income and medically compromised adults and improve outcomes of dental-related emergency center visits at St. Peter Hospital. The dental residency program will be located on the Providence St. Peter Hospital campus and will provide both primary and emergency dental care.“Many members of the dental community were in attendance supporting the dental residency program,” shared Peter Brennan, executive director of the foundation. “We received a $55,000 match from the Washington State Dental Association which was a tremendous incentive for attendees to give generously. The support for the dental residency program from both the dental and medical community was truly evident and deeply appreciated.”This adorable wreath from this year’s Christmas Forest was aptly titled “Merry Christmas.” Photo courtesy: Providence St. Peter Foundation.A number of the trees and wreaths purchased were donated back to the community and can be seen in the lobby of St. Peter Hospital, Providence St. Peter Hospital Neurology Unit (9th floor) and Medical Unit (4th floor), Providence St. Peter Sunshine House, Providence Mother Joseph Care Center, St. Peter Hospital Surgical Waiting Area, Panorama Convalescent & Rehabilitation Center, Olympia Senior Center, Boys and Girls Club and Kaiser Permanente.“Christmas Forest is about caring and providing compassionate health care to our most vulnerable citizens,” shares Rick Middleton, board president for the foundation. “It is our community’s responsibility to help care for those in need by giving of ourselves and doing all that we can to make a difference in the lives of so many. A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of our donors, volunteers and caregivers who made this event so very special.”Christmas Forest will return in 2018 with public viewings and the gala over the November 30 – December 2 weekend.last_img read more

Nelson management turns to former skipper Mario DiBella to right the Leafs ship

first_imgIt didn’t take the Nelson Leafs long to find a skipper to replace Dave McLellan, who unexpectedly resigned earlier this week.Nelson Leafs Hockey Society president John Dooley said the Heritage City franchise has turned to former coach Mario DiBella to right the rudderless ship of the once-mighty Kootenay International Junior Hockey League team.The decision came five days after the Leaf board decided to part ways with former coach and GM, Dave McLellan and assistant coach Greg Andrusak.”We felt Mario had experience with the organization as a previous coach and also coached at the (BC Hockey) Major Midget program so he new a lot of the kids locally and from the area,” Leaf president John Dooley told The Nelson Daily Sunday.”We felt (Mario) was in line with the values we have for the team and was the right person for the job,” Dooley adds.DiBella, 59, takes over the team’s Head Coach and General Manager positions, effective immediately.Dooley said everyone, including Sean Dooley and Stathis Dimopolus, two assistant coaches that remained with the team for the final game in Spokane Wednesday before the Christmas break, have been put on notice they may, or may not, return to the Leafs as DiBella now is tasked with the decision to put his support group together.Dooley said other people came forward, but it was DiBella, a pillar in Nelson’s hockey community, that showed the most interest. “Some other people said they were interested but we didn’t get much more from them,” Dooley explained. “When Mario put his name forward we met with him and made the decision (today).”DiBella, owner and operator of Martech Electrical Systems and Marwest Industries as well as an active supporter of minor sports in Nelson, must right a Leaf ship that lost 15 of 18 games since October 31.Nelson currently sits in fourth spot in the Murdoch Division with a 14-19-0-0-1 record, three points behind third-place Grand Forks Border Bruins and trails division-leading Beaver Valley Nitehawks by 17 points.DiBella comes to the Leafs with experience in the KIJHL, having coached the Leafs from 2000-2002.But he brings so much more to the team having been part of various levels from BC High Performance Zone, Provincial Camps for Team BC and Team Pacific to Head Coach of the Major Midget Kootenay Ice and the local BC Hockey Female AAA team, Kootenay Wildcats — now the Kootenay Wild. DiBella has also scouted for the Salmon Arm Silverbacks and the Westside Warriors in the BC Hockey League and the Melville Millionaires in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.DiBella is a Mentor Skills Instructor for Hockey Canada and is accredited with Hockey Canada’s Advanced Coaching certification. Before making the leap in to coaching, DiBella played for the Nelson Junior Maple Leafs, Penticton Broncos (BCHL), Grand Forks Border Bruins, Taber Golden Suns (AJHL) before completing his competitive career as netminder for Nelson Maple Leafs of the Western International Junior Hockey League.He was a two time first team all-star in the KIJHL and led the league in goals against average in the 1983 season with the senior Leafs. He has received several coaching recognition awards and has been instrumental in developing local players both in the male and female categories.”Mario’s job is to put his group together and more forward from here to a positive second half of the season,” Dooley said.”We want him to bring structure back to this program. . .. To focus on the development of players and education and relations within the community.”Values we believe in as a board.” DiBella’s first game at the helm will be December 30th against the Beaver Valley Nighthawks in Fruitvale.The first home game is the annual New Year’s Eve contest against the Nitehawks December 31 at 2:30 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.last_img read more
