HCMC Women's Center Newborn Hearing Screener
In 2012, the Paris and Henry County Healthcare Foundation has focused fundraising efforts on the purchase of a newborn hearing screener for the Women's Center at HCMC. Fundraising efforts for the $20,000 piece of equipment have been going for approximately a year, but the Foundation hopes to have this project completed by June 2012. In May 2012, the Foundation held its first ever Evening of Chocolate Delight that raised approximately $2,500 towards the equipment fund and did a second year of the Mother's Day Tea Letter campaign.
Caring Hearts Fundraisers
In 2012, the Paris and Henry County Healthcare Foundation continues to raise funds for cancer patients with a financial need receiving care at the Cancer Care Center of Henry County or at HCMC Outpatient Chemo. In February, the fund did a Steak and Chicken Sandwich fundraiser and raised approximately $2,000. June 16, 2012, the fund hosted the first ever Chairs that Care Silent and Live Chair Auction, raising $3,000. Below are photos of some of the chairs that were auctioned off.
Additionally, the fund will be doing Turkey Bowling in October as well as a Fashion Show and Luncheon on October 11, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
