Kind Hearted London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) Employee “Pays it forward” and gives contest winnings to the Radiology Department


(LONDON, Ontario): Judy Zink, Registered Technologist, was ecstatic after hearing her name announced as a winner in Q97.5’s “Win What You Want” contest last October. A wife, mother and LHSC employee, Zink had one thing in mind – she wanted to donate her win to the Radiology Department at LHSC in the form of a hand-painted mural on the wall corridor. “Something”, Zink says, “to take the patients mind away from the hospital, to somewhere tranquil and peaceful.”

After Zink chose the artist, Q97.5 and contest sponsor, Oxford Dodge, came through with extra funds for professional Mural artist, Marilyn Srigley. Srigley has created a Tuscany dreamscape of calming Mediterranean waters and beautiful trees in bloom, on the wall leading patients to Radiology procedures.

This Wednesday, February 8, 2006 the Mural will be unveiled and Zink will be on hand to cut the ribbon, and see her generosity in full colour.

Date: Wednesday, February 8, 2006
Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
