36 years ago, a few months before Christmas Mr. Gerhardt Breusche and his wife brought a picture of a handcrafted doll house into the Peak FM Radio Station (then it was CKCB 1400 ). Mr. Breusche hand made the house and all the furniture and Mrs. Breusche sewed all the curtains and bed and chair coverings. He was hoping to sell the doll house and donate the proceeds to charity.
John Nichols immediately thought to sell tickets in the community for a chance to win the doll house and donate the proceeds to the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital for the paediatric department.
The doll house was placed in the window of the radio station in Hurontario St and the goal for funds was set at $1400.
(same frequency as the Radio Station). And that goal was exceeded; the doll house raised $1488.
The following year other members of the community began to bring items into the Radio Station and the 2nd Annual Peak FM ~ Hospital Christmas Draw began.
In 2012 John Nichols retired from 95.1 The Peak FM radio station and in his honour the draw was renamed John Nichols Annual 95.1 Peak FM ~ Hospital Christmas Draw.
To date proceeds from the draw over the past 35 years exceed $783,000! Thank you to the community for your support! Your Hospital appreciates it.
