2017 Supporting Hometown Healthcare Campaign
We Live Here. We Give Here.
The Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation together with the Mitchell County Hospital Health System launched their 2017 campaign, entitled Supporting Hometown Healthcare, to help assist in raising funds for critical equipment purchases and healthcare investments for our communities. As the campaign comes to an end, The Foundation is excited to announce that over $50,000 has been raised that will go towards impacting local healthcare for years to come. An exciting addition to this campaign was a challenge from the Mitchell County Hospital Health System Endowment for every dollar donated, the Endowment has donated dollar for dollar in matching funds, increasing the resources to sustain quality healthcare in our community.
The successful six-week drive included MCHHS employee pledges, community donors and the first ever Supporting Hometown Healthcare: Blue Jeans Ball. MCHHS employees and families contributed over $16,000 towards the campaign. Each week employees who pledged were entered into a raffle drawing for a chance to win prizes. Raffle winners include: Amy Eilert, Radiology (Gift Card Package); Denise Berndt, Administration (Kansas City Chiefs Tickets); Jessie Eilert, Radiology (Amazon Gift Card); Julie Olson, Clinical Coordinator (Casino Package); Denise Berndt, Administration (PPL). The Foundation cannot say thank you enough to the MCHHS giving family of employees, staff, and physicians. It is truly inspiring to see the commitment, loyalty, and passion that lies within our family and we could not do the wonderful work that we do without you.
In addition to the MCHHS employee donations, over $30,000 was raised through local donors and community organizations. The Foundation was also excited to introduce our first ever Blue Jeans Ball in correlation with the campaign with over 110 patrons in attendance to witness the first ever “Dancing with the Stars of Beloit.” It was a fantastic evening of fun, food and entertainment raising over $4,000 all to support sustaining quality hometown healthcare.
