Records Set to Kick off 2014 Fundraising Campaign for OMC Foundation
The Olympic Medical Center Foundation's Red, Set, Go Heart Luncheon presented by the Jamestown S'Klallam tribe set record fundraising totals Friday, as close to 300 people gathered to learn how to prevent heart disease.
Held at Vern Burton Community Center in Port Angeles, the event raised its highest net total ever -- over $52,000.
"We sold a record amount of corporate sponsorship, had a record attendance, and most importantly, raised more money than ever for Olympic Medical Center's Cardiac facilities in Sequim and Port Angeles," said Executive Director Bruce Skinner. "We want to thank both communities for the support of this incredible event."
"Because of our sponsors, 100 percent of all money raised at the luncheon itself will go to the hospital," said OMCF President Karen Rogers. "In the past we have been able to provide funds for equipment that has saved people's lives, and we want to continue to do that." Money raised this year will go towards the purchase of two treadmills for the hospital.
