World’s Finest Shows and Markham Fair Annual Donation to MS Hospital for 2016

/, Markham Community/World’s Finest Shows and Markham Fair Annual Donation to MS Hospital for 2016

Faircrow, (Markham Fair’s Scarecrow Mascott) Markham Fair’s 2016 Vice-President Darren Little present a cheque to Allan Bell Director of Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation and Dr. Bear Program. The cheque is presented on behalf of Markham Fair and World’s Finest Shows.

Markham Fair and World’s Finest Shows have felt passionate for a number of years about donating to Markham Stouffville Hospital’s Dr. Bear program.

Prior to 2001, Markham Fair would hold an annual beef auction where World’s Finest Shows would traditionally purchase the 1st place 4H beef calf and donate the meat from this sale to local retirement and special needs homes to help compensate the cost of providing meals to the residents of these homes. As time went by, the beef auction stopped at Markham Fair, however, World’s Finest Shows still felt strongly about their continued partnership with Markham Fair in donating to a charity within the Markham/Stouffville area.

At that time, the idea of donating to the Dr. Bear program was introduced by the Manager of Markham Fair, Dave Morrison, and has been an annual tradition ever since.

On March 3, 2017 Markham Fair, on behalf of World’s Finest Shows, once again presented a cheque to Markham Stouffville Hospital to contribute to this very worthwhile charity and wish the Dr. Bear program continued success.
