One of the things the Foundation Board and our volunteers do VERY well
is raise money for Rideout Health's numerous facilities and programs.
Several events have become annual signatures for the Foundation and I'd
like to share with you some of our accomplishments this past year.
th Annual Fairway to Health
The Foundation's popular annual golf classic celebrated its 24th anniversary
this year. Since 1999, this event has raised nearly 2 million dollars
to support healthcare right here at home.
A special thank you to the 183 sponsors and silent auction donors, 204
golfers, 50+ volunteers and golf committee members for yet another successful event.
And a big thank you to Zach Zall, our hardworking Golf Committee Chairman,
who for two years in a row - yelled 'fore,' shot six, and wrote
down five – I kid, I kid!
Zach has been our golf chairman for the past two years – and THANKFULLY,
he has agreed to chair the event again this year: OUR 25
th YEAR– and boy -- it's going to be a doozey!
This year the tournament and auctions netted $140,000 and completed a $425,000
campaign to purchase our new Breast Imaging Equipment called Tomosynthesis.
Tomosynthesis is a three-dimensional method of imaging that surpasses
conventional x-ray mammography, which is a two-dimensional imaging modality.
This equipment will be installed in the new hospital and ready to go in 2016.
Plans are already underway for a grand 25
th Year Anniversary. The dates are Thursday, May 7 – Sponsor Party
-- and Friday, May 8 – Golf Tournament. This year we're celebrating
golf Great Gatsby style!

Dance With Our Stars
If you missed the 4th annual Dance with Our Stars fundraiser... we're
very happy to announce that there will be a 5th! Our 2014 event was held
at Colusa Casino Resort, in partnership with the American Red Cross of
Northeastern California. Eleven local "stars" pledged to raise
a minimum of $5,000 each for the opportunity to participate, and they
really outdid themselves. Proceeds were shared with the Red Cross and
the Foundation and exceeded $92,000.00!!! The celebrities did a fantastic
job of fundraising and the community support was just amazing.
A big thank you to our dazzling, dancing pros and celebrities

Rideout and Fremont Hospital Auxiliaries
The Rideout Foundation acknowledges and thanks the Hospital Auxiliaries
at Rideout Memorial Hospital and Fremont Medical Center. In addition to
helping patients, visitors and staff … members of the Auxiliary
run the Surgery Hostess Desk at Rideout and the Gift Shops at both locations.
Both auxiliaries are dedicated to rendering service to the Foundation,
the hospitals, our patients and families, and help with pretty much whatever
we ask of them, from mailings to assembling comfort kits.
Over the course of the last half-century, members of the two Auxiliaries
have provided more than 1.3
million volunteer hours. Yes, you heard that right – 1.3 MILLION!
And they make substantial financial contributions as well. This year, the
Rideout Auxiliary provided support of the Patient Comfort Kit program
for patients at our hospitals and the Vial of Life Program, a valuable
resource for the community to use to help first responders. They render
service to Rideout Memorial Hospital by managing the gift shop, the surgery
hostess program and floral design.
The Fremont Auxiliary renders service to patients and families at Fremont
Medical Center. They manage the Christmas Socks program for December babies,
offer homemade beanies and blankets for families in need, manage the gift
shop and a floral design team.
Fremont Auxiliary gifted $20,000 to the maternity department to purchase
new fetal monitor carts.
Special thanks go to Patti Reardon for presiding over the Rideout Auxiliary,
and Marnee Crowhurst who serves as the executive liaison for the Fremont
Auxiliary. Thank you both for your leadership, time and service.
