The Foundation is very pleased to announce that it recently received a check for $60,000 (from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous), which put them over their $2 million goal! In its 21 years of existence the Foundation has donated over $388,000 for hospital equipment, staff support, and doctor recruitment. It has also similarly supported the Scenic Rivers Clinic and Cook Ambulance Service.
However, the reality is that costs of medical care and equipment continue to rise. So, although the Heiam board members are thrilled to have achieved the goal, the commitment to continue raising money to build a larger endowment for the Foundation will go on into the future.
The Foundation’s annual benefit continues to be its largest fund-raiser of the year. The date for the 2015 summer benefit has been changed to Saturday, Aug. 22. Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend the W. C. Heiam Medical Foundation’s 22nd annual benefit!
