Greater Niagara General Auxiliary celebrates 90th anniversary

The Greater Niagara General Hospital Auxiliary is celebrating its 90th anniversary.

Through its impressive history, the GNG Auxiliary has made many contributions to healthcare in Niagara.

The Auxiliary most recently made a $500,000 pledge in support of Niagara Health’s Niagara Falls site, in support of critical patient equipment needs. Notable past donations also include: $500,000 towards a transformational renovation of the Niagara Falls Emergency Department and more than $100,000 each to Surgical Services and Laboratory.

Over the last three decades, the GNG Auxiliary has passionately fundraised for Medical Imaging, Breast Screening, Emergency Services, Surgical Services, Laboratory, and the Its Our Time campaign.

“Congratulations to the Greater Niagara General Hospital Auxiliary on this wonderful milestone. We’re so grateful for our auxiliary members’ many contributions through the years and for their commitment to healthcare in Niagara," says Niagara Health President Dr. Suzanne Johnston. "All of our auxiliaries are an integral part of the history and future success of Niagara Health.”

“As loyal supporters, the GNG Auxiliary can be counted on to answer the call whenever our hospitals’ identify a pressing need,” adds Roger D. Ali, President and CEO of OneFoundation for Niagara Health System. “From the operation of their gift shop, that requires countless volunteer hours in organization and staffing, to special events like the ‘Pink Ladies Classic’ Golf Tournament -  they are proven doers.”

The Auxiliary is hosting an "Auxiliary Through The Years" display outside their gift shop at GNG Monday, Oct. 2 until Wednesday, Oct. 4, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day.
