February is Heart Month and it provided an amazing opportunity to bring people together to raise awareness – and essential funds – for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. Our sincere thanks to our sponsors, community champions, partners, event organizers and participants, volunteers, and donors.

Our new building – the Heart Institute’s first major expansion since its founding more than 40 years ago – will be completed in early 2018. This expansion will allow the Heart Institute to address patient needs for the long term, treating more patients on an ongoing basis with an increased focus on specialized cardiac needs. As the building nears completion, our focus is on purchasing the highly specialized equipment it will require.

Thank you for supporting the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation. Your generosity goes straight to the heart of care in your community because we simply couldn’t do what we do, without you!

Hello Joan,

On behalf to the Jeanne Fuller Red Dress committee and the University of Ottawa Heart Foundation we want to thank you very much for being a Program Sponsor to this the 10 anniversary of this great charity event.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Regards,

Marion Martel

Thank you Joan,

We would say it a thousand times if we had to! Joan, thank you! You did something amazing last year! You enabled us to buy the following pieces of equipment for our doctors and nurses:

• 2 portable heart lung systems
• 5 echocardiography tee probes
• 6 patient defibrillators
• 26 mobile treatment carts

Inspiring our community to help fully equip a truly world-class cardiovascular centre of excellence is one of the most vital roles that the Foundation plays.

Thanks to you, we accomplished our goal and more. We raised much more than we needed, which will be put towards the hybrid OR.

Did you know? Public health care funding covers operating costs only which means, that acquiring leading edge equipment is dependent on people like you!

We are so happy to have you by our side Joan.

February is Heart Month. There are 29 days and so many ways to support lifesaving care at the Heart Institute.

• Take the Heart2Hearts Challenge
• See all of our community events for February
• Spread the word

Thank you for giving with heart!

Dear Mrs. Smith,

On behalf of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, the Jeanne Fuller Red Dress Golf Classic organizing Committee and the Fuller family, we would like to thank you very much for sponsoring the 4th annual Jeanne Fuller Red Dress golf classic. Your generosity has helped raise over $116,000 for the Heart Institute.

The Jeanne Fuller Red Dress Tournament focuses on making women aware of heart disease which is still the # 1 cause of death in women in North America. This event has become a beacon for this cause; the Heart Institute hopes to help re-shape women’s attitudes and understanding of heart disease, increase preventative measures and fuel heart research with a view to ultimately ending the disease.

With your support, you demonstrate your commitment to the Heart Institute-Canada’s largest and foremost cardiovascular health centre. Your gift is a valuable investment in patient care, important cardiac research and the acquisition of key medical equipment.

It has been an honour to lead this important event for the Heart Institute. We look forward to your continued sponsorship of next year’s Jeanne Fuller Red Dress Charity Golf Classic in September 2011.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Andrea Timlin at 613-761-4022 or atimlin@ottawaheart.ca. Sincerely,

Subject: 3rd Annual Jeanne Fuller Red Dress Charity Golf Classic

Dear Mrs. Smith,

On behalf of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute and this year’s Organizing Committee we would like to thank you for your generous sponsorship of the Jeanne Fuller Red Dress Charity Gold Classic. Thanks to your generosity $70,868 was raised for the Heart Institute and more awareness was spread that heart disease is the #1 killer of women.

As you well know, excellence and success do not happen by accident. Today, one of the most important ingredients in the Canadian healthcare sector is philanthropy. The Heart Institute is a stunning example of how a proud and generous community can help foster excellence in healthcare. Dr. Keon’s vision, drive and leadership were key in creating the Institute and are being continued under Dr. Roberts. Both men would agree that the dream would never have been fulfilled without champions – private individuals and corporations who believe in what the Institute is trying to accomplish for the betterment of our community.

With your support, you demonstrate your commitment to the Heart Institute – Canada’s largest and foremost cardiovascular health centre. Your gift is a valuable investment in patient care, important cardiac research and the acquisition of key medical equipment.

As we all make our way through these difficult economic times it is important to remember that our health is our most important asset. The light shines ever so brightly on donations made at this time.
