2023 Gala - A Roaring Success
On January 14th, 2023 the Valley County Health System Foundation held their annual Charity Gala. The Fun Pianos Dueling Piano Show put on an amazing show that kept everybody in the room involved and entertained. Surrounded by donors and supporters of the VCHS Foundation, they raised over $27,000 for the new MRI.
“The Foundation is so thankful for the generous support of everyone who helped with, attended, or donated toward this annual evening. We feel blessed to be part of this community, and that we are able to give back through the great support given us by all our generous donors. Your donations and support touch the lives of so many who are served by Valley County Health System & through the services they offer,” shared Foundation ED, Elizabeth Todsen Clark.
Missy Cetak gave a heartfelt patient testimonial that boasted her outstanding patient care at VCHS. She was especially appreciative to Dr. Greg McClanahan and the EMS team for all of their help. She credits VCHS for saving her life.
There was a great live auction filled with an assortment of items. Steve Wolf, Auctioneer and Broker at Wolf Inc., led the auction with Terry Cone and Amos Lange calling bids. Community businesses and generous donors provided a very nice offering of auction items for those in attendance. Jubilee Catering provided the 1920’s themed meal and Akrs Equipement sponsored the champagne toast.
Previous Executive Director, Becky Ries, was awarded the 2023 Leadership Award. Ries has given years of her time and talents to the Valley County Health System.
If you were unable to attend and would like to help the Foundation in paying for the new MRI, donations can be mailed to VCHS Foundation, PO Box 321, Ord, NE 68862 or you can give online at vchs-foundation.org.
The Foundation’s next fundraiser will be the annual golf tournament & auction, which is scheduled to be held on Friday, June 30th, 2023 at the Ord Golf Course, so please mark your calendars & plan to attend.
