The RiverView Foundation Board of Directors would like to thank KROX for another great year of broadcasting RiverView’s Philanthropy Day event on Thursday, Nov. 15th.
This year marked the fifteenth year KROX has broadcast live, on-site for this meaningful event filled with heartfelt stories from RiverView patients and staff sharing testimonials of the exceptional care they and their loved ones have received at RiverView Health.
RiverView’s first Philanthropy Day event was held Nov. 15th, 2004. Since then more than 290 personal interviews have been shared with KROX listeners detailing how critical local healthcare services are for the people that live and work in our rural community.
“Philanthropy Day is an important day for our organization,’’ said Foundation Director Kent Bruun. “The annual event is important in helping to create an increased awareness of services offered at RiverView Health and to share the important role of donors and their support of RiverView’s mission. The Foundation Board and I want to thank Chris Fee and KROX for the years of support they have given this event. Without them it would not happen.’’
The Foundation Board of Directors would also like to thank those who shared their stories with KROX’ listeners, as well as everyone who participated in the Community Health Fair and the growing charitable support received from donors. As volunteer board members we are honored and committed to serve our locally governed community hospital so it remains healthy and strong, today and in the future.
Philanthropy Day is a great way to share all that we are thankful for at the Foundation. It is a great way to highlight the priority programs and medical equipment that provide the greatest benefits to the highest number of patients. We thank you for being a part of this important event, and for your continued support of the RiverView Health Foundation.
