Sam and Sher Sevier were named 2016-2017 Lights of Life Campaign Chairs and checks for $120,000 and $100,000 were presented during the Celebration Reception honoring those involved in the 2015-2016 campaign. The $120,000 check was presented to the Memorial Hospital CEO/Michael McAndrew and Memorial Hospital’s Board of Directors. The funds will be used to purchase 6 CPR devices for EMS which will provide the EMS Department the tools and abilities they need to improve survival rates during cardia arrest. The LUCAS CPR provides consistent and quality chest compressions without the need to stop compressions to perform other clinical procedures. The check for $100,000 was added to the growing Health Care Foundation “Leaving a Legacy” Endowment Fund held in trust by Guaranty Bank Trust and Wealth Management Group.
The 2015-2016 Lights of Life campaign chairs Donna Rudzik, Gloria Mitchell and Polly Swatsell, 2015-2016 Campaign Chairs, recognized and thanked the generous sponsors and guests who contributed to the overwhelming success of this year’s event.
