The yearlong fundraising successes of the Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick and Camden Campus Auxiliaries were celebrated during their recent holiday luncheons. Both Auxiliaries presented donations to the health system from the proceeds raised through the gift shop and auxiliary fundraising events held December 2017 through November 2018.

Auxiliary donations stay in the respective communities and are specifically earmarked for items that directly impact patient care. Previous years’ purchases have included rehabilitation equipment, waiting room furniture, recliner treatment chairs, simulation manikins for staff training, telemetry equipment and artwork for the pediatric unit.

Pictured are Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick Campus Auxiliary President Joyce Toler, from left, Michael D. Scherneck, president and CEO, and Kristin Doll, CAVS, director, volunteer services, with a donation of $125,000.
