Jones Memorial Auxiliary raises over $110,000 in 2015

The Jones Memorial Auxiliary is a small but very determined group of individuals who are dedicated to raising money for Jones Memorial Hospital. This year, the group did a spectacular job; raising over $110,856.
“Our auxiliary has once again exceeded all expectations,” said Eva Benedict, CEO at Jones Memorial Hospital. “This year they set a record, funding over $110,856 worth of patient equipment. We are so grateful for their dedication and all the hard work they do for our patients.”
The new equipment includes an ultrasound machine to be shared between the emergency department and anesthesia, new sleep chairs for the birthing suites for fathers and other support people, and replacements for defibrillators and ENT equipment and instruments.
Some of the activities sponsored by the Auxiliary are used book sales, Vera Bradley sales, chicken barbecue, Books Are Fun sales, uniform sales, costume jewelry sales, employee appreciation tea, Celebrate Summer Classic Golf Tournament, fine jewelry sales, and the Gala & Silent Auction. The Auxiliary also runs the hospital gift shop. Everyone at Jones Memorial Hospital would like to thank the Auxiliary for everything they do, every day!
