“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.
Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.
My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.” – Melissa Rivers
Here are some of Joan’s funnier moments.
Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley). But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance. Caught between life and death for one revealing day, Mia has only one decision left, which will not only decide her future but her ultimate fate. “If I Stay” is based on the best-selling novel of the same name.
and if you haven’t seen it yet….last week NOVEMBER MAN came out…..what do you think of either movie?
The Belleville General Hospital Foundation Gala A Night at the Tiki Lounge is Sat Sept 20th at the Sears Atrium. Tickets are $200 each by calling (613) 969-7400 ext. 2061
The annual event marks the largest fundraiser of the year for the BGHF. In 2013 more than $290,000 was raised to purchase new equipment for the Belleville General Hospital. The theme in 2013 revolved around the John Travolta classic Grease, and Rollins said having a theme attached to the gala each year is just another way to make the event as “fun” as possible.
“We find that people just love to have fun, and they really enjoy having a costume to wear,” Rollins said.
In total, the event has raised almost $1 million for hospital equipment over the past several years, and in 2014 Rollins said the goal will be $320,000, the highest goal the foundation has ever set. Funds from the event are earmarked to help with cancer care at BGH.

Bowling with the Bulls is coming up at the end of this month on Sunday, September 28th from 2-5pm at Quinte Bowl.
Lanes are filling up fast! If you are a Bulls fan or know someone who is then you will NOT want to miss this event. It is the only event of its kind where you can get up close and one on one with your favorite Belleville Bull.
Registration is only $25 per person and includes shoe rental and lunch!
This is a fundraiser for The Lung Association, so every registered person is encouraged to raise $100 in pledges. Pledge money can come from family, friends, co-workers, neighbours – anyone. A tax receipt will be issued for pledges over $10 (unless otherwise specified). Money raised goes toward vital lung health research, education and air quality. Did you know that the average person takes over 20,000 breaths every day? Breathing is pretty important.
The prize for top fundraising individual is $50 Quinte Mall gift card. The prize for top fundraising team is a “Suite Night” at a Bulls regular season game for you and 13 of your closest friends – includes food and refreshments! Last years top team was a team of 5 people – three 3 year olds, a 5 year old and 6 year old. They were “Small But Mighty” and they raised over $750.
Open to the general public as well as participants is our raffle draw (6 great prizes to be won) – look for us at the Bulls games on September 13 and 27th! There is a silent auction (20 prizes) and a live auction. Don’t miss out on your chance to bid on a 2015 Bulls Summer Hockey Camp – a value of $495.00. Come on down to Quinte Bowl on September 28th and place your bid or buy a ticket!
Every registrant who raises $100 or more will receive a framed and signed picture of them with their favorite Belleville Bull and you will get your registration fee back in the form of a tax receipt! So essentially you will bowl for free!
You can register as a single bowler or you can register 4 or 5 people and make it a team! Teams are always better because you can pool your pledge money to try to earn that top prize. Register on line at www.bowlingwiththebulls.kintera.org or call me at 613-969-0323.
