The generosity of this year’s sellout crowd was amazing. With all of our efforts combined, we raised $270,000, making this our most successful Le Grand Picnic ever! Everyone that attended is an essential partner in helping us make equipment upgrades, expansions and improvements, so the hospital can continue to provide the best care possible.
The money raised during this year’s Fund Our Need auction will go towards an education center to serve hospital staff and the community. The center will be built in honor of Donald Willerth, past Foundation president. He and his wife Andrea have been passionate about healthcare and education. This project, in memory of Donald, who passed away last year, will continue his legacy.
Midge Reisman, Foundation board member, and her husband Ed, kicked off the Fund Our Need auction with an unbelievably generous donation of $50,000! All in all, 74 people donated raising $96,000 and this amount was matched by Andrea Willerth – INCREDIBLE!!!
