Joanna's Ready to Help You Plan Your Next Event

January 27, 2018


Joanna Coccimiglio, Community Engagement Intern at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation is excited to help you plan your next event in support of our Hospital.


Are you interested in planning an event in support of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation? Meet Joanna Coccimiglio, Community Engagement Intern at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation. 

Joanna is a recent graduate of Lakehead’s Honours Bachelor of Commerce program with a focus in marketing and has been recently hired as a part of the Health Sciences Foundation’s Special Events team.  Joanna specifically focuses on supporting “community events”- those that are planned by people in the community and for which the Health Sciences Foundation provides support. “Whether it is a haircut, golf tournament, sporting event, social or yard sale, it is amazing seeing people putting their time, effort and imaginations toward a good cause.  Although our team has supported various types of community events, there is always one common theme throughout- the passion for supporting health care in our community.  I am always looking forward to collaborating with community event partners and hearing their personal stories that motivated them to fundraise. It is an amazing feeling making their ideas and dreams into a reality,” she said.  

Joanna can helping make your event ideas into a reality by providing support through:

  1. Event planning support
  2. Event promotion
  3. Fundraising tools (donation boxes, banners, flags etc)
  4. Tax receipts for gifts over $20
  5. Guest speakers at the event

For more information about planning your own fundraising event, call or e-mail Joanna at (807) 633-8914,
