The Lane Regional Medical Center Auxiliary presented a check for $20,000 to the LaneRMC Foundation at its annual luncheon on August 12, 2014. Auxiliary president Pauline Rushing presented the check to Theresa Payment, LaneRMC Foundation Director, and Frank Ragsdale, LaneRMC Foundation Chairman. This is the Auxiliary’s second installment toward its $75,000 pledge to the Foundation. “I am extremely proud of our work during this past year,” said Rushing. “It is especially rewarding to know that in addition to serving patients and families on a daily basis, the results of our fundraising efforts can also be seen at the new Radiation Oncology Center which opened on Lane’s campus in March!”
CEO Randy Olson thanked the group for volunteering more than 9,000 hours of service this year and praised their on-going fundraising efforts from Gift Shop, Jewelry, and Bake sales, Book Fairs and Popcorn Fridays. Funds raised go toward the Foundation’s overall goal of $1M to support the hospital’s mission of providing access to the very best healthcare services, technologies and programs available in the region.
