The Amherst Special Olympics

Special Olympics Amherst would like to cordially invite you to our 2nd annual:


This year’s auction will specifically support the Special Olympics Amherst Soccer Team as they prepare to travel to Vancouver in July for the 2014 National Summer Games.

Scotiabank Amherst Centre Branch, as part of Team Scotia Community Involvement Program, will be participating with the hope of matching a portion of the funds. Auctioneers, Roger Bacon and Steve LeBlanc, will be your hosts for this event.

Come early to register your paddle, and view our beautiful confections. The auction will feature more than 20 delectable cakes with a flavour to tempt any palate, and just in time for Mother’s Day.  What a great way to show your community spirit and support our Special Olympics Athletes as they strive for greatness. Admission is free, so gather your friends, family and co-workers and join us:

Cruise Around the World!


Ahoy! Join us for a Cruise Around the World!

The Board of Directors of the Cumberland Health Care Foundation extends an invitation to you and yours to join us for the 16th Annual Foundation Dinner to be held on Saturday, April 26th, 2014 at the Amherst Regional High School.

We’ll be cruising around the world, celebrating cultures far and wide! Wear your culture’s traditional clothing or pay tribute to a country you love by dressing in their national costume: a beautiful sari, lederhosen, highland kilt, kimono, dashiki, sarong, serape, or dashing sombrero – there are so many to choose from. Or perhaps just add a small token from a faraway land to your outfit – however you dress join us for a rich, varied and colourful world tour!

Proceeds from the evening will support the Cumberland Health Care Careers Bursary Program.

The evening will begin with a reception ‘topside’ at 5 p.m. Dinner begins in the ‘Officers’ Mess’ at 6:15pm with a delicious buffet meal. During the evening, various items will be auctioned (live and silent) in support of the bursary program. The Foundation will also be presenting the 2014 Distinguished Service Award in addition to its annual Volunteer of the Year Award.

Tickets for the evening are $50 per person of which a portion is tax deductible. Tickets can be purchased via cash, cheque or credit card.

Call us at 667-5400 x 6210, email us, or drop in to the Foundation Office just inside the main doors of the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre between 8 am and 4 pm Monday to Friday.

We sincerely hope that you will join us for what will be a wonderful evening!
