The New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation hosts a number of special events each year to thank donors and bring new donors into the Foundation family. These annual events are a fun way to come together and help special projects in the hospital. In addition to the Foundation-organized annual events listed below, there are other community-led events that raise needed funds and provide more opportunities to become involved.
If you or your organization would like to raise money or hold a third party event for the Pink Ribbon Project, please call Kristal McHugh at 815-5003.
