North Lincoln Hospital Foundation’s Summer Gala and Golf Scramble fundraising weekend was an astounding success, raising $196,000, reported Cathy Sandoval, NLHF Executive Director.

“I am amazed by the incredible generosity of the north Lincoln County community and our many sponsors,” she said. “Thank you to everyone who participated in this stellar event.”

Formerly known as Corks and Cuisine, the Summer Gala on Aug. 25 was attended by close to 100 people, who enjoyed fine cuisine, wines and the music of the Bringetto Jazz Duo. The following day, the annual NLHF Charity Golf Scramble saw 24 teams of three or four golfers competing for prizes.

One highlight of the gala evening was the “paddle raise,” during which guests raised their bid card to donate at specified dollar amounts. One couple raising a paddle to pledge a $25,000 gift were Virginia Riffle, Chief Operating Officer of Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital, and her husband, Bob Riffle. This was followed by a $20,000 commitment from a local family foundation and a $50,000 anonymous commitment.

“The paddle raise is such a fun part of the evening that always generates a lot of excitement in the room. I am so grateful to Virginia and Bob for setting the tone at a high level,” Sandoval said. “I am equally appreciative of the others who were inspired to raise their hands and open their hearts to give as they are able, to support our worthwhile projects.”

Proceeds from the weekend activities at Salishan Spa & Golf Resort go to Samaritan Early Learning Center, a preschool for infants and children through age 8, and to the capital campaign to furnish and equip the replacement hospital facility. The capital campaign is now approaching the $5.5 million mark of its $7 million goal.
