SUMMER 2016
Dear Friends,
 
We are pleased to be sending you the 2016 summer edition of "The Contributor," our electronic newsletter.  Stories in this issue highlight some of the activities that have been going on at the Beatrice Community Hospital Foundation the past few months.
 
It is also another opportunity for us to say "thank you" to the generous donors who provide regular gifts to the BCH Foundation. Every gift is important and every dollar given has a positive impact on our local community and the healthcare opportunities available to your family, friends and neighbors.
 
Thank you for being a "contributor" and an important partner in our efforts!  Enjoy reading about all the good things that have been happening.

Gratefully,
  
Sam Rennick

P.S.  The Foundation is very pleased to have the support of the following Premier Event Partners for 2016.  For more information about becoming one, be sure to contact me.
Intensifying the Impact
Employee Campaign Sets Giving Record
The BCH Foundation recently held its third annual employee giving campaign, "I Give from the Heart." The campaign kicked off the week of May 9 - 13, in conjunction with National Hospital Week, and concluded on Friday, June 17 with a celebration that featured Traubel's popcorn and snow cones.
This year a new record total of over $21,000 was raised to help support Employee Scholarships, the Employee Crisis Fund, and continue to fund areas of Greatest Need that benefit patients and families. Campaign Co-chairs for 2016 were Nicole Jones, Heidi Lauenstein and Brady Hanquist.
