$37,000 in 365 Days – Sheridan Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Does it Again


On Friday, February 7, 2020, the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Auxiliary presented donations totaling $37,000 to The Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation at its annual meeting and luncheon. With this gift, the Auxiliary has given $674,000 to Sheridan Memorial Hospital since 1991.

Also joining in the presentation were elated Foundation Staff and Board Members Richard Garber, Cody Sinclair, Dr. William Doughty, Ada Kirven, and Stella Montano. Auxiliary Board President Karen Steir and Trees of Love Chairwoman Joan Kalasinksy presented this year’s donation check to the department leaders and The Foundation on behalf of The Auxiliary Board and their membership.
