A grey, wet fall day didn’t keep hungry people from stopping by the Royal Bank on Baker Street last month as the branch sold hot dogs to raise money for a new chemo hood for the Kootenay Lake hospital. Bank branch manager Scott Fraser (left) was busy grilling hot dogs, while Kris Witt (middle) the vice-president and Bryna Idler (right) of the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation stopped by to see how they were selling. RBC raised $15,000 for the Hospital Foundation and an additional $500 for the BC Children’s Hospital. The money raised at the hot dog sale brings the total donation to the local health care to over $70,000 in the last 10 years. The chemo hood is a biological safety cabinet that protects both the sterility of the chemo medication and the staff mixing the chemo drugs. It is vented through two Hepa filters for the incoming and outgoing air to meet environmental standards. It requires annual certification for environmental emission standards.
