Special Recognitions Made at Fremont-Rideout Foundation Evening of Appreciation Event

The Rideout Health Group Foundation recognized numerous individuals for their commitment to the foundation's programs and activities at its annual "Evening of Appreciation" attended by more than two hundred people in Yuba City in October.

The Foundation's highest accolade, the Phebe Rideout Award, went to the Morrison family, including John and Trish Morrison and mother Mitzi Morrison who were all in attendance to accept the designation in honor of Gayle Morrison, Mitzi's husband and John's father. Gayle Morrison served on the FRHG Board of Directors.

The Morrison family is well known for their support in both counties for the Rotary Clubs, high school sports, Little League, Yuba College Tennis and the Yuba-Sutter United Way. Many of their community activities also involve healthcare, including the American Cancer Society, Pink October, the Make a Wish Foundation, the Pediatric Tumor Foundation and the Rideout Foundation.

Dorothy Jang accepted the "Philanthropist of the Year" award on behalf of her family and her husband, Woodrow Jang. Woodrow Jang served on the Yuba College Foundation Board of Directors, was Chairman of the Rideout Foundation, as well as President of the Marysville Lion's Club and the Marysville Rotary Club. After Woodrow's passing in 1997, Dorothy carried on the family tradition of community service. She is an ardent supporter of the performing and fine arts, Yuba College, the Friends of the Packard Library, and numerous other civic and charitable organizations. In addition to their volunteer time, the Jang Family has given more than $25,000 to the Foundation in support of non-profit healthcare.

Henry Miller, owner of Valley Truck & Tractor, received the Foundation's Humanitarian Award. His association with Rideout goes back well before the 1983 merger of the two hospitals. Miller served on the board of Rideout Memorial Hospital then on the Fremont-Rideout Board. He has been a solid supporter and participant in all 21 years of the Fairway to Health Golf Tournament. In just one recent year, Henry's name appeared on the donor lists for 17 of the Foundation's memorial funds.

Kevin DeHoff, owner of The Country Florist, was recognized as the Volunteer of the Year. Since 2010 he has sponsored National Make Someone Smile Week, delivering flower arrangements to patients at the Cancer Center, The Courtyard, The Fountains and The Gardens, Rideout Home Health and Hospice and Women & Infants Services at Fremont Medical Center. He is assisted each year by a team of volunteers, including members of the Teen Leadership Council.

Community Service of the Year honors went to Bill Hill and Jim Richmond from Valley Muffler. For the past 11 years Valley Muffler has hosted a car show at their business in Yuba City and raised more than $15,000 for the Cancer Center.

Volunteer Shirley Crumback, President of Rideout Memorial Hospital Auxiliary was also among those recognized. The Auxiliary helps patients, visitors and staff; they run the Surgery Hostess Desk, the Rideout Gift Shop, the Pink Trunk Thrift Shop and they handle floral design. Last year, the Auxiliary donated $20,000 to Rideout Memorial Hospital, the Cancer Center and Rideout Medical Services Organization. They also gave $5,000 to fund the Sherry Hall scholarship.

Lita Wells, a member of the Fremont Medical Center Auxiliary since 1995, was also recognized for her volunteer efforts. The Fremont Auxiliary donated more than $10,000 to the Fremont Medical Center and The Fountains, provided funding for education and material management and donated $3,000 to the Rideout Foundation Scholarship Fund.

The California Emergency Physicians Medical Group was recognized for their $50,000 pledge for the Emergency Department expansion. Dr. Rudy Zaragoza, Dr. Mark Alderdice, Dr. Eric Leung and Dr. Marty Spear contributed

Jerry and Pat Whitten were recognized for donating $50,000 in memory of Pat Whitten's parents to refurbish the chapel at Rideout to create a more comforting environment for patients and their families.

The Geweke Caring for Women Foundation was recognized for its $25,000 donation to pay for two medical-grade computer monitors for the Rideout Women's Imaging Department. The Geweke foundation has been a local leader for raising awareness of breast cancer and raising money for a cure for breast cancer.

Darnell Robinson, Community Development Director Clearinghouse CDFI, and long-time local resident, was honored as a Bequest Society member, a designation in which a donation of $10,000 or more is made to the Foundation as part of a will, trust or other type of estate plan. Robinson joined the Bequest Society to recognize his mother, Ollie M. Robinson, "A great loving and caring woman who molded me into the man I am today."

Three more honorees are partners in Cobb, French and Prasad Neurosurgical Associates and the leaders of the Neurosurgery Center at Rideout, which opened in 2009. Each has individually pledged $10,000 in specific support of the new Rideout Tower building.
