AHC Foundation Christmas Fundraiser Successful

The Agnesian HealthCare Foundation raised $25,000 and will be able to help an additional 65 people in 2017 through the Carol Hyland Caring for You Fund thanks to another successful Caring for You at Christmas Holiday Luncheon.

Nearly 200 people attended the sixth annual luncheon at Whispering Springs Golf Club in early December. The event featured 26 specially-designed tables that participants enjoyed over good food and conversation.

The Agnesian HealthCare Foundation’s Carol Hyland Caring for You Fund was established in 2010 for patients requiring assistance with basic life needs they are unable to afford during cancer treatment or care for other long-term illness. The fund has helped people to pay for rent, cover utility bills, gas or groceries.

Guests purchased bottles of wine for a chance to win raffle prizes, such as a Ladies Citizen Eco-Drive Gold Watch, a Moscow Mule Basket, a Pamper Me Pink basket, Bloody Mary basket and Harley basket.

Attendees also participated in an exciting live auction featuring an elaborately decorated table by Erin Rademann at Partners by Design, and a fully-decorated Christmas tree with holiday pots by Stuarts Landscaping & Garden.

The event was sponsored by Holiday Automotive, Shea Electric & Communications, LLC, Dr. Michael & Leslie Vander Kooy, Baker Cheese Factory, Schenck SC, and Dr. Mary Schultz. Raffle items were donated by C.W. Smith Jewelers, Carol Hyland, Holiday Automotive, Joni Wallender from Create Salon & Spa, Susan Fiebig and Open Road Harley Davidson.
