Marilyn Christensen, more popularly known as PT the Clown, recently donated a gift of $500 to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital’s Starlite Campaign.

It is PT the Clown’s second major gift to East Kootenay Foundation for Health as part of her annual Magical Christmas Show.   For those in attendance at the December 7 event PT the Clown did not disappoint as the stage and audience was filled with laughter, singing and dancing thanks to the magical journey of finding the right Christmas tree played out on stage.

Dancers from the Aspire Dance Academy also joined in with some creative dance routines.  The funds from this year’s PT the Clown show are being dedicated toward the purchase of comfort (equipment or entertainment) needs for children who may find themselves spending time on the unit.

The Starlite Campaign continues until the end of January 2014 and EKFH will be issuing an update release in the next few days.
