Parkview’s Cans for a Cure and Q97.9FM

Posted Thursday, October 25th, 2012

THE SAYING ‘THINK GLOBALLY AND ACT LOCALLY IS ALIVE AND WELL
AT PARKVIEW AS THE HOSPITAL HELPED Q 97.9FM SMASH ITS GOAL
OF COLLECTING 500,000 RETURNABLE CANS AND BOTTLES DURING
THIS YEAR’S ‘CANS FOR A CURE’ CAMPAIGN. D-J’S JEFF, LORI AND
MEREDITH WELCOMED THE CREW FROM PARKVIEW, WHO HAULED
MORE THAN 5,000 CANS AND BOTTLES COLLECTED DURING A MONTH
LONG LOCAL ‘CANS FOR A CURE’ FUNDRAISING EFFORT. “THIS WAS
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING,” SAID NIKI YEATON, MANAGER OF PARKVIEW’S
EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT. “ONE OF MY STAFF, BECKY, LOST A FRIEND
TO BREAST CANCER NOT LONG AGO AND MENTIONED THE IDEA OF
HELPING THE Q IN THEIR EFFORT TO COLLECT CANS AND BOTTLES TO
RAISE MONEY FOR THE MAINE CANCER FOUNDATION. I MENTIONED IT TO
A COUPLE PEOPLE AT PARKVIEW AND THE IDEA JUST TOOK OFF!”
WEARING PINK TEE SHIRTS WITH “CURE ME” ON THE FRONT AND
“PARKVIEW CANS FOR CURE” ON THE BACK, THE FOUR DROVE DOWN
TO THE MAINE MALL WHERE Q 97.9 HAD BEEN CAMPED OUT ALL WEEK.
ONCE THEY ARRIVED, THE Q CREW INTERVIEWED THE FOUR LIVE ON THE
RADIO. DURING THE INTERVIEW, SUSIE SHARPE, A FORMER PARKVIEW
EMPLOYEE, CALLED TO DONATE $1,000 FROM HER HARPSWELL THEATRE
GROUP WHO WANTED TO DONATE IN HONOR OF THEIR FRIEND WHO
PASSED AWAY FROM BREAST CANCER. “I HEARD MY PARKVIEW FRIENDS
ON THE RADIO AND JUST KNEW I HAD TO HELP OUT THE Q’S CAUSE!”
SHARPE TOLD THE Q. MOMENTS LATER, THE Q CREW ANNOUNCED
THAT THEY HAD SMASHED THEIR GOAL AND THAT PARKVIEW WAS THE
REASON!
