Auxiliary gifts $50,000 to Health System

The Orange City Area Health System Auxiliary presented a check for $50,000 to Marty Guthmiller, CEO, and Dan McCarty, COO, at their board meeting on March 14. The gift is made possible as a result of monthly Auxiliary fundraising activities during calendar year 2017, with the remaining majority of the contribution from Gift Garden gift shop sales. The Orange City Area Health System Auxiliary hosts a wide variety of fundraisers each year, including: jewelry, book, scrubs, gourmet candy, spring plant, and fudge sales; Ladies Night Out Style Show; Harvest Festival; and the Holiday Open House. Orange City Area Health System’s 20-member Auxiliary Board, from Orange City and surrounding communities, meets monthly and work throughout the year to plan, organize, and staff each monthly fundraiser. The Auxiliary gift has been designated to help fund the purchase of the health system’s new 3D Mammography system. “This is an incredible group of individuals who give of their time for the benefit of the patients and families of Orange City Area Health System,” says Mary Plathe, Volunteer Services Manager for the health system.
