The Delhi Belgian Club Shield and Friends Society demonstrated their charitable side by presenting a donation of $5,000 to the Norfolk General Hospital Foundation. Nancy Pynaert, Vice President of the Belgian Club indicated that the $5,000 came from the proceeds of the Club’s Nevada Ticket sales “Our regular customers must be thanked for their patronage. These are the people who buy the Nevada tickets on every visit to the Hall” said Pynaert. Marc VandenBussche, Belgian Club President went on to say “They should be commended for their commitment. They know that the money is going back to the community.”
“The Club is doing very good. We felt we should contribute to the health of the community. We know that there is a need in our community health care” stated VandenBussche, he continued with a smile, “and, we want all Norfolk babies to be born at NGH so one day they will get married at our Hall.”
“Norfolk County has such cultural diversity. The Belgian Club has great identity within the County; one to be proud of. We are proud and thankful to accept the contribution the Club has made today in support of the future of health care in Norfolk” said Julie Powell, Director of Development for the NGH Foundation.
The Delhi Belgian Club Shield and Friends Society donation will support the Building a Better Hospital Campaign; a $13 million project that will include the renovation and redevelopment of Labour and Delivery, Day Surgery and Minimally Invasive Suite at Norfolk General Hospital.
