AUXILIARY SETS RECORD WITH GIFT TO HOSPITAL

 

The Greenville Regional Hospital Auxiliary presented their annual check to the hospital Tuesday night in the hospital community room. The $335,000 check set another record this year. This brings the total amount raised by the Auxiliary during its lifetime to over 3.3 million dollars.  The auxiliary is planning more than 20 fundraising events over the coming year, including two new events.  One will include a candy sale and the other is a homemade gourmet food sale.  Both are planned to be held at the hospital, but no date has been set as they were just approved by the Auxiliary Tuesday.  The Auxiliary also inducted new officers including President Nancy Machmer, Betty Shenkel First Vice President, Martha Grant Corresponding Secretary and Pam Tompkins Historian.  Sharon Ahern will continue as Treasurer.  Sharon has held that position with the Auxiliary for more than ten years.  Boyd Vieregge will continue as Second Vice-President and Donna Bristow as Recording Secretary.
