WILMINGTON (WWAY) — The New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation is doing things a bit differently this year by holding the 2020 Founders’ Non-gala in the month of September. It is to raise money for the Betty H. Cameron Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
The Non-Gala is a virtual fundraising campaign where you can make one time gifts, create fundraising pages to raise money on it’s behalf, and participate in on some fabulous virtual silent auctions.
The auctions are on-line only and the next chance to cast your bid is Thursday, September 24. The next auction is a wonderful getaway at a vacation home in Ocracoke. Auctions will be taking place on Facebook.
The NHRMC Foundation says it is intended to offer several opportunities for community members “to support the Betty H. Cameron Women’s and Children’s Hospital patient experience.”
The NHRMC Foundation decided not to host in-person events for the remainder of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last year, 1,115 pediatric patients at the Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital needed MRI imaging. Of those patients, 391 required sedation to successfully complete their scans. The NHRMC Foundation says it is committed to raising $200,000 to fund a Caring MRI Suite.
