(Eleuthera, Bahamas) – As the Health Association of Central Eleuthera (HACE) gears up for its annual fundraiser event scheduled for Saturday, March 4th, 2017 at the Sunset Inn, the Governor’s Harbour Development Association (GHDA) stepped up to the plate to make a donation of $1,000 to the Association which operates and maintains three ambulances and provides essential ‘volunteer’ emergency services in Central Eleuthera.
On Tuesday morning, February 28th, 2017, HACE Chairman, Mr. Chris Gosling, accompanied by HACE Treasurer, Mrs. Carleta Culmer-Turnquest, met up with GHDA Chairman, Mr. Theodore Petty, and GHDA Treasurer, Mr. Arthur Turnquest, to formally accept the donation.
“The ambulance service is such a vital one in the community of Central Eleuthera,” expressed Mr. Turnquest, adding, “We didn’t want to miss an opportunity to be a part of that… We all felt that this was indeed a cause that this organization should contribute to.”
Highlighting the impact the donation would have on assisting with HACE activities, Mr. Gosling expounded, “We rely on donations from many sources and every donation is vital. This one donation will license and insure one vehicle, and we run three ambulances, so off the top our expenses per year for licensing is $3,000. So we really appreciate the Fish Fry (GHDA), and all these organizations, like Fish Fry, Cancer Society, the Fire Engine, HACE – we all basically work together for the community, and we are very grateful.”
