The Local HERO Foundation (Helicopter Emergency Response Organization) held its annual fundraiser on May 4th in support of saving lives in the region. This important organization raises funds and awareness in support of Northeastern Alberta’s only 24/7 helicopter emergency medical services, a critical lifesaving service in our community. Attendees were treated to a fun and festive Mardi Gras-themed evening, live band and auction all in support of this important cause which raised $245,000! The Foundation relies heavily on donations from the community, and we are one of the many companies pleased to support this worthy organization. For those who missed the event, individuals are still able to contribute to the Speed of Life campaign via PayPal on the ymmHERO website and the Local HERO Foundation Facebook page.
