mun nursing charity ball and nlbia

 

On behalf of the Newfoundland and Labrador Brain Association, survivors and families, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the MUN Student Nurses for choosing our association as this years recipient of their fundraising efforts. The 23rd Annual Nurses Charity Ball was held Saturday, March 27th and although an online event it was certainly enjoyable one.
I commend the student nurses on their dedication and professionalism and through their hard work and many activities our association to date will receive approximately $12,600. It has been the association’s privilege and pleasure to work with you all and a special thank you to Ashley Hatcher and Kaitlyn Bishop who are the coordinators for this event. As with many organizations, our sustainability relies on the the efforts of others through fundraising and donations and our Programs and Services will greatly benefit from these proceeds.
The future for these young men and women is I’m sure a bright one and the Newfoundland and Labrador Brain Injury Association wish you all the best.
Congratulations to the graduating Class of 2022.
Marina White
President of NLBIA
