A very unique fundraising project was undertaken in September by contestants in the Junior Miss Newfoundland and Labrador Competition. This year contestants chose Mazol Shriners as the beneficiary of their fundraising activities. From Every Corner of our Province, St. John’s to Labrador, contestants engaged in several weeks of personal fundraising activities, all with the goal of contributing to Mazol’s Patient Transportation Fund.
On the evening of September 16th, at the crowning of Miss Junior NL, it was announced that a total of $9,823.75 had been raised and would be donated to Mazol Shriners. Sarah Pitcher of Winterton was the winner of Mazol Shriner’s Youth Leadership Award in recognition of her efforts in raising $2010.40.
Members of the Trinity Conception Shrine Club were in attendance for the presentation. Mazol is indeed most grateful for being chosen as the charity of choice for 2018.

This is National Volunteer Week in Canada and we are celebrating the great volunteer efforts from Mazol Shriners!
Over 400 Shriners across Newfoundland and Labrador are dedicated to providing our children with world class medical treatment throughout our Hospital network in North America. Shriners annually conduct ongoing fundraising activities to support their philanthropy. Whether it be burn injuries, orthopaedics, spinal cord injuries, or cleft lip and palate, Shriners are there to extend a helping hand and always at no cost to the family.
“As Potentate of Mazol Shriners in Newfoundland and Labrador I would like to thank our many Nobles who give selflessly to further the cause of our great philanthropy. Thank-you to all who give their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return.” – Ill. Sir Paul Rose
Shriners are the first point of contact, making the families travel arrangements, co-ordinating their Hospital visit and providing ongoing care during each child’s period of treatment, whether they be infants or teenagers. All in all none of what Shriners do would be possible without the generous support of the general public and the private sector.
