The Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation dished up a treat to representatives of the hospital departments being awarded funding next year—a real slice of pie. The primary purpose of the second annual “Come Get Your Slice of the Pie” celebration was to review the process of accessing the grants and to ask recipients for their help in documenting the ways the money will be used to better care for patients. “What they shared was truly heart-warming,” said BMH Foundation Executive Director Alice Moss. “There was a compelling need behind each request, and it was wonderful to hear first-hand what a difference these Foundation grants would make in patient care”
In 2016, the Foundation will donate $843,518 to the hospital for a variety of projects and programs, big and small, including a new 3D Mammography machine, asthma camp scholarships for children, and hallway monitors for the ER. The celebration was capped with a decadent display of pies—apple, peach, pecan, Boston cream, and of course, pumpkin, all created by the hospital’s Executive Chef Eric Sayers and his staff. Everyone left with a boxed up slice of pie and a renewed appreciation for all the Foundation does for the hospital and the community.
