Meadows Auxiliary Pledges $300,000 to The Tommy and Shirley Strickland Cancer Center
VIDALIA – Meadows Regional Medical Center recognized its Auxiliary recently at a year-end dinner held in their honor at the Meadows Wellness Center. The event began with dinner, followed by a presentation of service milestone pins for number of service hours donated to the hospital.
Highlighting the evening was the presentation of a check from the Auxiliary for $100,000 for The Tommy and Shirley Strickland Cancer Center. This donation represents the final third of their five-year $300,000 pledge to the center.
“Our auxilians are among our greatest advocates and marketers in our community,” said Meadows Regional Medical Center President and CEO, Alan Kent. “Daily they help make this much more of the hospital, cancer center, and health care system that we aspire to be!”
