A record 500 guests gathered to support Kenmore Mercy Hospital on November 22 during the Kenmore Mercy Hospital Foundation's A Tribute to Angels event held at the Buffalo/Niagara Marriott.
Event chair, Lee Ann Vogt and co-chair and Foundation Trustee, James Rykowski, proudly hosted a successful A Tribute to Angels, raising $139,000 net of expenses to benefit Kenmore Mercy Hospital.
This year’s “Fund an Item,” a unique component of the evening’s program which raises funds to purchase a specific item or piece of equipment for the hospital, raised $18,700 to purchase brand new flat screen televisions to be installed in patient rooms at the hospital.
The Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award honorees included Drs. Marcus and Cindy Romanowski and John and Betsy Sullivan. The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Dr. Edward Stehlik and his wife Margaret.
