The South Jersey Healthcare Auxiliary raised $50,000 in 2012 to help support South Jersey Healthcare, the region’s leading health care provider. The Auxiliary hosts fundraisers throughout the year to help SJH continue in its mission of providing high-quality health services to patients in southern New Jersey.
Lynn Crescenzo, past chairperson for the Auxiliary, said recent donations by the Auxiliary to SJH include; $5,000 to the Deborah F. Sager Memorial Fund for the new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, $5,000 for the new Pediatric Emergency Room at the SJH Regional Medical Center, and $1,000 for the SJH Employee Crisis Fund.
“The Auxiliary is a dynamic organization raising awareness and funds for SJH,” said Chet Kaletkowski, President and CEO of South Jersey Healthcare. “It is through the hard work of the Auxiliary, and other donors throughout the community, that SJH can continue to pursue the highest possible clinical and service standards of excellence.”
Crescenzo said the organization relies on fundraisers – such as the annual Princess Party, the SJH Auxiliary Annual Calendar Raffle and the Auxiliary Yard Sale – to generate funds for hospital needs.
In addition, the Auxiliary announced the appointment of the Board of Directors executive officers for 2013:
· Robert Odorizzi, President
· Connie Montero, Vice President
· Donna Baruffi, Secretary
· Stacy Fisher, Treasurer
