Hotties for the Hospital

In 2007 a very unique calendar was launched to raise funds for the Hospice House. Well folks its back!
Shawn Talbot, Regency Retirement Resorts residents and some of our local politicians and doctors have teamed up to create an eye-catching and unique "Hotties for the Hospital" calendar.

The 2013 Calendar’s proceeds will be designated to the renovation of the patient & family room on 4 East of the Kelowna General Hospital.  This unit provides care for patients who are in rehabilitation targeted to returning home. The room is a gathering place for patients to have meals, visit with family and/or play games.  Funds will support the purchase patient comforts such as furniture, entertainment and recreational items.

The 2013 Calendars are now available for $10 each.  To show their continuing support, the owners of the Resorts are stepping up and matching every dollar raised from calendar sales up to $25,000.  With these matching funds, the goal is to raise $50,000 to benefit the patients of KGH.

New for this calendar, some of KGH’s favourite surgeons and staff are involved.  Dr. Mike Ertel (Chief of Staff), Dr. Bill Nelems (Thoracic Surgeon), and Dr. Guy Fradet (Head of Cardiac Surgery) all stripped down to help raise a few bucks.

The Regency 2013 Pin-Up Calendar, ‘Hotties for the Hospital’, will be available for purchase at any of the resorts, at Chapter’s bookstore, and at KGH’s Centennial Mercantile in the lobby of the Centennial Building.

About the Author

(singer/songwriter, event producer, digital creative, connector)

I love creating and connecting. For years I spent most of my time in Kelowna creating songs. Those songs have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, etc. 

I use this column to connect some of our local creatives, events, unique local projects, or timely entertainment information. 

Originally from Scotland I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years.  My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities).
