The gift is made possible as a result of monthly Auxiliary fundraising activities during calendar year 2016, as well as a contribution from the hospital’s 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 Poinsettia Sales, Ladies Night Out Style Show, Harvest Festival, and the Holiday Open House. “Our 20-member Auxiliary Board — from four communities — meet monthly and work all year long to plan, organize, and staff each monthly fundraiser,” reports Mary Plathe, Volunteer Services Manager for Orange City Area Health System. “This is an incredible group of women who give of their time for the benefit of the patients and families served by Orange City Area Health System.” The Auxiliary gift has been designated to help fund the purchase of the phone system update for the health system.
