Brent Hiller, Foundation Board Member

Next generation of Hillers steps up to the tee

When people support the Foundation, they know the money is going to the right place for the right reasons and with minimal expense says Brent Hiller, a recent addition to the Stratford General Hospital Foundation Board and the "next generation" of Hillers to step up to the tee.

The Hiller family has long been involved with Stratford General Hospital Foundation through its Board, but also through its longest running and highly successful special event, the Royal LePage Hiller Golf Tournament.

"My high regard for both the Hospital and the Foundation led me to getting involved," explains Brent. "It's amazing that we have a facility like our hospital in a city the size of Stratford, and the Foundation's efforts-coupled with a very supportive community-have helped make that happen."

Brent wants to spread the word through business and personal contacts to make sure people know we have something special in Stratford-and that their generosity can have an impact.
