Preparations Underway for Summer Events!

Spring has finally sprung!  How great to see all the green leaves and early flowers starting to bloom.  Although winter was rather mild this season, the anticipation and everything Spring brings is always welcomed.

The solar eclipse that everyone had been eagerly awaiting on Monday, April 8th was incredible! It was amazing to be in the ‘path of ‘totality’!  Many thousands of visitors flocked to the area for the big event. How comforting to know that AHN Westfield was fully staffed and ready for any needs that may have emerged during this rare solar event.

And for the sports fanatics out there, we hope you enjoyed one of the most fun stretches of the year: NCAA Final Four, Major League Baseball (MLB) Opening Day and Masters week.

Here in the Foundation office, we are busy preparing for our online giving events in June and July:

GIVE BIG CHAUTAUQUA (GB CHQ) on Thursday, June 13th

Give 716 on Monday, July 15th through Tuesday, July 16th.

Give Big CHQ is a wonderful way for not-for-profit organizations like us to boost its fundraising efforts and WMH Foundation is thrilled to be a participant once again.

Watch for special giving incentives during Give Big CHQ to help the hospital Foundation maximize its fundraising efforts. Obtaining 10 new ONLINE DONORS will allow us to be part of the “Stretch Pool Dollars” incentive earning even more funds for the hospital via our Foundation.

The Buffalo Bills Foundation and Buffalo Sabres Foundation host another online event called Give 716.  We feel fortunate to be part of these opportunities and hope that you will choose to give a tax-deductible gift during either (or BOTH) of these giving events!

In July we will usher in our 46th year of supporting AHN Westfield Hospital and the 13 rural communities we serve throughout Chautauqua County.  Our Executive Director and Board of Directors are dedicated to raising the funds that will keep our hospital vital and accessible to all of you.  But most importantly, it is YOU that keeps us going year after year!  Without your continuing generous support and backing of our special events, we would not be here.

Thank you for being here for us, as we continue being here for you.
