[December 28 2010] -
The Hospital of Central Connecticut New Britain General campus Auxiliary Dec. 15 donated $100,200 to the hospital for programs that help both patients and employees.
At the hospital’s annual corporators’ meeting, Auxiliary President Annette Salina presented a $100,000 check for the hospital’s Comprehensive Breast Center. The funds were raised at the Auxiliary’s annual Chrysanthemum Ball Nov. 6, which drew more than 450 people.
On Dec. 14, Salina and Auxiliary President-Elect Judy Kilduff presented a check for $200 to the hospital’s Caring for Colleagues Employee Crisis Fund, Inc. The Fund supplies financial assistance to hospital employees facing undue hardships and unforeseen crises.
“We are extremely grateful to the Auxiliary for their support of these two vital programs,” said hospital President and CEO Clarence Silvia. “We are fortunate to have such dedicated and hard-working Auxiliary members, who, over the years, have raised millions of dollars for the hospital and generously give of their time and talents.”
