The women of Health Alliance of Clinton County gathered last week for their most anticipated meeting of the year — the presentation of checks from 2019 fundraising, where they got to see all of their hard work come together and pay off in big ways.

HACC presented a check to the Cancer Patient Assistance Program for $25,000. The check was presented to Louanne Blumberg, Pat King, Liz McAllister and Michelle Roth.

Gretchen James was on hand to accept a donation for $3,000 for Heather’s Hope, a non-profit organization started in 2010 to help raise money for the research of diabetes and to help patients with diabetes both locally and nationally.

Immediate Past President Kathy Havey then presented Patti Settlemyre of Hospice of Clinton County a check for $3,000.

Members also voted to put $4,000 to the HACC Scholarship Fund. This fund is open to anyone looking to further their education in any medical field.

The women hosted Eleanor Harris, executive director and founder of Harvest of Gold. Since 2000, Harvest of Gold has been helping children throughout Wilmington in after-school programs to further their education with help in tutoring, summer reading programs and much more.

Mark your calendars for March 26 for the Wilmington College Health Fair. And come to the Collective Goods Book Sales at CMH April 8-10.
