On Friday, September, 26, 2014, 6:00-9:00 PM, Cortland Memorial Foundation
hosted the Harvest of Gold! Under a tent at the SUNY Alumni House, 194
guests enjoyed the sounds of Rick Starmer on keyboard, delectable hors
d’oeuvres, and a cash bar while mingling with friends. Five lucky
ticket holders won one of five prizes - an Early Bird cash prize, a two
night get-away to the 1000 Islands, a day of fishing with a St. Lawrence
River guide, a one night stay and visit to Singer Castle, and a two night
stay at the Lynne Parks ’68 SUNY Cortland Alumni House.
During the evening the Foundation took the opportunity to honor the Ames
Family – Bud, Diane, and Johanna – for their leadership and
service to Cortland Regional Medical Center. Mark Webster, Cortland Regional
Medical Center President/CEO, acknowledged all that the Ames Family has
given to the community while supporting the hospital.
Stephen Franco, emcee and Immediate Past President of the Board of Directors
for Cortland Memorial Foundation, also announced the Foundation has re-designated
a pledged gift of $1.2 million to Cortland Regional Medical Center. Due
to changes in the Medical Center’s strategic plans, these funds
will now be used to assist with the expansion and renovations of the Endoscopy
Suite which is scheduled for completion in 2015.
The Harvest of Gold proceeds of $19,056 benefit Cortland Memorial Foundation
which assists Cortland Regional Medical Center’s efforts to provide
high quality, compassionate healthcare while keeping services close to home.
