Holy Name Foundation Guild Raises $17,000 in First Ever Tricky Tray
Funds to benefit emergency department
The Holy Name Medical Center Foundation Guild raised $17,000 at its first ever Tricky Tray dinner, where more than 240 people gathered at the Graycliff in Moonachie, NJ. The event was held to benefit Holy Name’s emergency department and funds will be used to provide enhanced upgrades to the department to ensure continued delivery of unparalleled patient care.
"We held this fundraiser to show our support for the emergency department and its staff who give so much to the community at large," said Barbara Pastore, president of the Holy Name Medical Center Foundation Guild. "At Holy Name, it is not only about life–saving care. It's about providing comfort and reassurance to patients and families during a time of crisis or high–anxiety. We wanted to help the helpers of our community do what they do best."
Attendees had an opportunity to win gourmet food baskets, jewelry, clothing, accessories, and other luxury items all donated from community businesses and organizations. The Guild presented the check to Holy Name president and CEO Michael Maron, emergency department director Dr. Richard Schwab, and emergency department staff.
"We are so grateful for the donation," said Dr. Richard Schwab, medical director of the emergency department at Holy Name. "This will allow us to enhance the highly-skilled and compassionate care provided by the emergency department every day."
