NCH's Gala Raises Over $125,000
North Coast Health hosted 275 guests at their signature fundraising event, Celebration of Caring, held in early September. Through the gifts of event sponsors, donors, and other generous supporters, North Coast Health was able to raise over $125,000 to continue providing healthcare to the medically underserved, including almost $35,000 to expand our Behavioral Health Program to address the significant gap in mental health services in our community.
At the event, awards were given to the following individuals and organizations for their work in helping the medically underserved to access care - Community Champion Award: John R. Corlett; Partner Award: Cotabish Charitable Trust; Hahn/Hoeffler/Sanders Memorial Award for Outstanding Medical Volunteers: Norma Collin and Peggy Drew; and Angel Volunteer Award: Carolyn McGreal.
For nearly three decades, North Coast Health has provided a safety net for low-income individuals and families struggling to access affordable medical care. We serve the most economically vulnerable in our community by helping them to navigate a complex health care landscape and by establishing programs that address the current needs of the medically underserved. As a faith-based organization, we hold dear the belief that all lives are valuable and that all should have access to high-quality health care regardless of the ability to pay.
