“We are excited to bring the community this innovative way to fundraise in 2021” says Brigitte Gurden, the new Executive director of Memorial Healthcare Foundation. “Just like every other non-profit in our area, 2020 made fundraising difficult. Our board tried to find a way to fundraise that would be different than others and to do something that our whole community could participate in,” said Gurden.
The broadcast will be featured on the Foundation’s Facebook page and a link will be on the Foundation web page at www.memorialhealthcare.org/foundation. Donations will also be accepted by text, donors can text GIVE2021 to 243-725.
