Hospital foundation’s golf event raises more than $100,000
La Grange – La Grange Memorial Hospital Foundation raised more than $100,000 for Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital at the organization’s annual Golf Classic. The funds will be doubled with a matching grant from Community Memorial Foundation and will benefit the hospital’s Patient Care Center.
The outing took place at La Grange Country Club and included both a live and silent auction. Dr. Bonny Chen, an emergency room physician who treats patients at Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, and community member Tom Gleitsman served as co-chairs.
“We are so grateful to the community for their support of this event,” said Beth Leuck, executive director of the La Grange Memorial Hospital Foundation. “In addition to raising financial resources to support our health services, we were able to increase awareness of the emergency department at Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital.”
The philanthropic foundation supports capital endeavors and day-to-day needs at Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital through fundraisers.
