Rat Pack Jazz a hit at hospital foundation event
Adams & Cooley of Omaha brought their distinct variety of jazz to Imperial Saturday to entertain those at the Chase County Hospital Foundation donor appreciation event.
The foundation holds the annual event to show their appreciation to donors who make the work of the foundation possible.
Hospital Administrator Steve Lewis told the crowd that over the past eight years, the foundation has provided more than $1.4 million in donations and grants to the hospital’s mission.
“None of this would be possible without the assistance of you in the audience tonight,” Lewis said.
Of that $1.4 million, Lewis said 56 percent has come directly from donations to the foundation.
He noted the foundation helps support both diabetic and cancer support groups.
The hospital’s annual cancer walk/5K run will be held in Wauneta Oct. 6, beginning at 7:30 a.m., followed by a pancake breakfast.
Lewis said the hospital has added two new members to the medical staff this year—PA Nicole Havel and Dr. Elizabeth Hatz.
The foundation has been selling tickets for a drawing of an afghan and rifle.
