CKLW: Bob Probert Ride raffle raises $60,000 for mental health programs

CKLW 800 AM’s news department reports good news this morning:

A raffle for a 2021 Harley Davidson Road Glide has raised $60,000 towards supporting mental health and addictions programs at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare.

Usually funds raised through the Bob Probert Ride go towards cardiac support, but the last year and a half has created a real challenge for a lot of people, so hospital staff and the Probert family made a change. 

Dani Probert says it just made sense to put the money there based on the past few years.

“Having the mental health and addictions program at HDGH, we see the need,” she explained. “The numbers on our end and needing the funds to help out where we can at our place but also Dave Cassidy saw it, and this was a big part of UNIFOR’s request because they’re seeing it with their people and we’re seeing it all around.”
