The Decatur County Hospital Auxiliary is giving a sigh of relief. In 2011, we made a pledge to the New Hospital Fund for $80,000.00. Yes, $80,000.00. This would justify the space allocated to our ‘Just Because’ gift shop in the lobby. Many bake sales, jewelry sales, revenue from the gift shop and the golf tournaments allowed us to present the above (or below) check presentation. Of course, all this was possible because of the support from our county community. Thank you. This $5,000.00 check retires our 2011 commitment but isn’t the end of our endeavors to support our hospital. Our auxiliary continues to give our scholarship to candidates studying in the medical field. And then we give a little extra something to the employee fund. This last group is one of our best supporters. Thank you all. Now we are focusing on innovative ways to help support and promote our county hospital. Stop by our gift  shop and check us out.

IMG_8852The DCH Auxiliary held its 8th annual golf tournament on August 2nd at the Leon Country Club. As a result of a very successful event they were able to present Suzanne Cooner, CEO, with a check for $10,000. Co-chairpersons Linda Chastain and Rachel Duncan and the staff of DCH would like to thank all the volunteers of the Auxiliary for their hard work, countless hours, and talent they put in to this year’s event. They would also like to thank all the sponsors and golfers who supported the event. It was a very enjoyable day and the weather was perfect!
