Auxiliary president Gladys Sims presented the check to Randy Olson, chief executive officer, at the Auxiliary’s Annual Luncheon held at The Bennett House in Zachary in August. Olson thanked the group for their support and service to the hospital.
Jennifer Johnson, chief nursing officer, and Haley Arceneaux, 2010 Auxiliary scholarship recipient, also attended the luncheon.
Annual fund-raising events such as sweet sales, book sales and jewelry sales contribute to the Auxiliary’s donation each year. Also, proceeds from the hospital Gift Shop, which is operated by the Auxiliary, are donated to the hospital.
The Auxiliary has been in existence since 1960, providing support to the hospital both financially and through volunteer service. There are more than 50 active members.
