Mount St. Mary's Reverse Draw raises nearly $12,000by jmaloni
The Mount St. Mary's Hospital Foundation held its second annual Reverse Draw Fundraiser on May 9 and raised nearly $12,000 to benefit The Center for Women at Mount St. Mary's Hospital, a one-stop health care facility for women of all ages.
The fundraiser is the continuation of an event that, for 34 years, was conducted by the Temple Beth Israel. In 2011, the leadership of the temple bestowed the fundraiser to Mount St. Mary's.
As part of the event, Mount St. Mary's honored the co-chairs of the annual Mount St. Mary's Women's Healthcare Conference; The Niagara University women's hockey, softball and soccer teams; and two choral directors and one volunteer for their work to benefit Mount St. Mary's Breast Care Center.
