Relive the Success of the 2019 O'Reilly Bonspiel for Providence

Last year's 21st annual O’Reilly Bonspiel for Providence raised a record breaking $17,600 (net) for Providence Healthcare! We've raised close to $200,000 (net) since launching this incredible fundraising event in the late 1990s.

The ‘Bonspiel’ could not have achieved such great success without the assistance and thoughtful contributions of friends and family who gave so generously. A heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to reaching this event milestone, and the outstanding philanthropic spirit of our guests.

The longevity of the ‘Bonspiel’ is a tribute to its generous supporters who are essential to its continued success. Special thanks to event sponsors and donors like Brad Daniels, Beck Taxi, Mark Russom, Doug Voth, and Linden Grove Floral Studio.

On behalf of the curlers, sponsors and donors, Leslie has accepted a challenge to raise $50,000 over four years to support the transformation of the Palliative Care program. In year one of our new challenge, your generosity has helped us purchase three ambulatory infusion pumps- a much needed piece of equipment for our palliative care program.

We hope you will join us again next year as this event continues to support the needs of Providence Healthcare and the thousands of patients, residents and clients served in their hours of greatest need.

Thank you again for supporting this our event!

With appreciation,
Leslie & Providence Healthcare Foundation

P.P.S. Your participation in the O'Reilly Bonspiel for Providence will help us realize our shared vision of providing the best end-of-life care in a state-of-the-art facility to benefit our patients and their families.


Your Support Makes a Difference…Let’s Continue the Tradition!

Last year, we started a new challenge, to purchase ambulatory infusion pumps, which are a much needed piece of equipment for our palliative care program. in 2019, we were able to fundraise $17,600 to purchase 3 of these pumps! Our goal this year is the same...3 more infusion pumps.

What is an Infusion Pump?

  • It is important that our patients receive safe, accurate & monitored medication.
  • Our caregivers use wireless medication pumps with advanced software to ensure accuracy.
  • This vital technology enables our staff to provide their patients with the best possible medical care and pain management, with dignity and comfort front of mind.
  • The pump is small and lightweight—which minimizes impact on a patients comfort
  • Accurately records medication, decreasing the risk of errors.
  • With the right equipment we can ensure that each patient is safely receiving the right drug, at the right time, at the right dosage.

Each pump is valued at $5,500. With your help, we are optimistic Providence can purchase this much needed piece of equipment.
