Members of the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Auxiliary were honored for their years and hours of service at the hospital’s Annual Recognition reception on May 8.
During the event, a check for $80,000 was presented to the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation toward the Auxiliary’s pledged support for the new patient tower.
Money raised by the hospital gift shop along with annual events contributed to the donation. The donation was accepted by Foundation President Marlee Lauffer.
“The Auxiliary is a key partner in so many of our fundraising efforts,” Lauffer said. “It’s inspiring to see the Auxiliary take on so many fundraising activities and provide such a significant gift. The new patient tower will be a tribute to the many volunteers who share in our goal of excellence in patient care both with the donation of their time and the raising of money.”
During the reception, longtime Henry Mayo volunteer Jim Brush was recognized by the Auxiliary for his outstanding dedication and commitment to the community and for his support for the hospital.
