Wednesday June 24, 2015
The 29th Annual Fundraiser for the B.D. Parsee General Hospital will commence with a Jashan this coming Saturday June 27th at 5;30 PM at the residence of Yasmin and Jamshed Ghadiali
Yasmin and Jamshed have been spearheading this effort for the last 29 years and it continues to grow and thrive under their stewardship.
Below is the appeal they sent out.
Last year was our 28th Annual Fundraiser for The B. D. Petit Parsee General Hospital. Thanks to all of you we raised a total of $36,800 which was sent to the Hospital by wire transfer. We also sent a sum of $600 for the Parsi Ambulance Division.
Our 29th annual fundraiser for the Hospital will be held on Saturday, June 27, 2015at our residence: 2686 Belcher Street, Baldwin, NY 11510-3937. We will start with a jashan at 6:00PM followed by dinner.
The funds, as always, are to be used specifically for distributing free and subsidized medications to the poor and needy Zoroastrians. Every cent collected has been sent.
The Hospital is grateful to all of you for your generous donations. It helps to give services to the poor in spite of accelerating health care costs. The Hospital writes that the cost of free medicines was Rs. 9,040,000 in 2012; free diagnostics and rehabilitation care cost another Rs 15,300,000.
Please send your donations made payable to ‘ZAGNY-Critical Assistance Fund’ and mention in the memo, “Parsee General Hospital” and mail it to our address given below.
You can also donate online with a credit or debit card on ZAGNY’s website at: https://zagny.org/contribute-to-zagny/
This appeal is sent once a year, but the fundraiser is open throughout the year. Please communicate this appeal to all your friends and family. Every donation irrespective of the amount is very important to the Hospital.
We sincerely thank all our Zoroastrian friends from USA and Canada for your tremendous support, encouragement, and generous donations for an extremely worthy cause—taking care of our sick and needy.
