Brantford Power and Brantford General Hospital
Foundation joined forces for the 2006 Tree of
Lights Appeal by working together to light up the

Gil Scott, Brantford General Foundation, John
Glowala, BGH Maintenance, Andy Molenaar, Vice
Chair of Brantford Power, Dave Levac, MPP, and
George Mychailenko, CEO of Brantford Power,
