A Garden Party 2016
Hospitality 2016 Breaks Fundraising Records! More than 500 friends and
supporters of great local healthcare gathered on Saturday, April 30th
for Bozeman Health Foundation’s Hospitality 2016 dinner and auction.
“A Garden Party, Planting Seeds for the Future” raised more
than $365,000 to support Bozeman Health’s Family Birth Center. With
this help from generous contributors, we will secure vital equipment and
expand by 20% the physical capacity of our special care nursery. This,
in turn, will enable us to increase the already high quality of support
we provide to babies in need.
The silent auction, with nearly 100 items, many having been donated by
Bozeman Health staff, was a huge hit with the record crowd. Thanks to
$55,000 in matching contributions from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana,
KLJ, Niles and Ginger Hushka, Pediatricians from Bozeman Health Pediatrics,
Physicians from Bozeman Health Women’s Specialists and Bozeman Health
Family Birth Center, our Live Drive raised more than $190,000. Bozeman
Health Foundation is extremely grateful to the entire employee community,
and particularly to the Petal Pushers auction committee, for the extraordinary
amount of time, talent and treasure that was offered through this event.
Hospitality 2017 is on the calendar for April 29th of next year; mark
