About Hats on for Healthcare

The Hats on for Healthcare fundraiser supports services at Windsor Regional Hospital and has become one of the most important ways to raise money. In 2019, more than 183 organizations and/or businesses participated, helping to bring in $44,204.35 in donations.

Individuals, organizations and companies can all join in the fun. Everyone is invited to put on their creative head attire, make a $2 donation and take part in the many entertaining activities throughout the city. Participating in Hats on for Healthcare is a great way to show the community you care about local healthcare.

Companies can also encourage their employees to have fun with additional activities, such as company barbeques, casual Fridays, bake sales, car washes and many other fundraising activities.
