NHRMC Foundation Launches Founders' Non-Gala

September 01, 2020
In alignment with NHRMC's mission to lead our community to outstanding health, the NHRMC Foundation has decided not to host in-person events for the remainder of the year. While this means that we will not have the glitz and glamour of the traditional Founders’ Gala, the Foundation will launch the 2020 Founders’ Non-Gala, a virtual fundraising opportunity. This effort will take place from Sept. 1 to Sept. 25, 2020 and will offer several opportunities for community members to support the Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital patient experience.

Last year, 1,115 pediatric patients cared for at the Betty H. Cameron Women's & Children’s Hospital needed MRI imaging. Of those patients, 391 required sedation to successfully complete their scans. To advance our ability to provide patient-friendly scans for NHRMC’s smallest patients, the NHRMC Foundation is committed to raising $200,000 to fund a Caring MRI Suite. This specialized suite allows patients to customize their imaging environment (through music, lights, video display, etc.), lessening the need for sedation and improving the overall patient experience.

Whether it be via a one-time gift or sponsorship commitment, participating in the virtual silent auction or fundraising on their behalf, the NHRMC Foundation hopes community members will consider supporting the 2020 Founders’ Non-Gala by making a contribution.
