AUXILIARY COMES THROUGH FOR CENTER.
LANCASTER - The Antelope Valley's future Women and Infants Center got a significant financial boost from the hospital auxiliary.
Outgoing auxiliary directors presented $50,000 on June 23 to the hospital.
``We are in awe of this extraordinary gift,'' hospital CEO Les Wong said. ``The auxiliary has worked for several years to raise money for this project, and they have earmarked the funds for the Women and Infants Center because they recognize how strong the need is and how vital this center is to our community.''
The money was raised through a variety of events and initiatives, including the Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop, the auxiliary's ``New to You'' thrift shop, raffles, bake sales and a Christmas in July sale, said Mary Theobald, the hospital's director of volunteer services.
``This is a focused group whose members are dedicated to the health of our community,'' said Theobald. ``We want the Valley to realize that they not only volunteer their time to help the hospital run efficiently, but they also contribute in other ways.''
Prior to the check presentation, the newly elected 2005-2006 auxiliary board officers were installed. They are:
President Maggie Sullivan, First Vice President Laurie Creese, Second Vice President Edna Arnold, Recording Secretary Katheryn Shafer, Corresponding Secretary Patti Welbourn, Treasurer Judy Vaughn and Member at Large Verona Lee.
