Summer Finally Arrives!

A new season is upon us…. Welcome Summer!

Summer here in the Chautauqua County region has something for everyone…. sunshine, water fun, hiking, biking, golf, vacations, and just plain relaxation!   How lucky are we?!

Here at the Foundation office, we are entering our ‘busy season’!   Our two popular online fundraisers are coming quickly.  Give Big CHQ is a 24-hour giving day held on Thursday, June 13 and sponsored by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation.  It gives smaller nonprofits (like us) the opportunity to raise needed funds with online gifts.  They even offer bonuses and incentives for the chance to earn a little extra.

It is very simple and only takes a few minutes from your computer or cell phone.  Simply go to and type in “Westfield” and select our giving page.  Follow the prompts to make your tax-deductible gift.  Every dollar truly helps and stays LOCAL at AHN Westfield Hospital.

The second online event is GIVE 716 which is sponsored by the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres Foundations.  This 24-hour giving day is slated for Monday, July 15 starting at 7:16 pm until Tuesday, July 16 at 11:59 pmThere will be great incentives for all you ‘super fans’ as the two teams typically have some great sports memorabilia available.  Stay tuned in July for more information!

In addition, we will again have our “10 Days of Giving” raffle to be held from November 18-27.  There will be fantastic prizes such as electronics, hotel stays, power tools, gift cards, and an E Bike with values from $200 – $1500!  Daily ‘runner up’ prizes will also be given.  Ticket prices will remain the same as last year….1 for $20 or 3 for $50.  Tickets will go on sale in July.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and here on our website for more information as the dates get closer.  We hope we can count you in!
