2020 Founders Appreciation Dinner Canceled

After thoughtful consideration, we have decided to cancel our annual Founders Appreciation Dinner scheduled for Friday, April 3 at the Ashland Hills Hotel. We did not reach this decision lightly, because the dinner is our special way of showing our appreciation for the generosity of our donors and volunteers and their valuable contributions to Asante Ashland Community Hospital.

As a foundation dedicated to supporting our hospital and the wellbeing of our community, we want to do everything we can to help keep you healthy and safe. One way to do this is to avoid hosting large events at this time.

As you can imagine, this is very disappointing to all of us involved in coordinating the Founders Dinner. We had big plans to thank our donors and provide an evening filled with great food, beautiful music and enduring friendship!

We also planned to give attendees a sneak peek at our Patrons Campaign project for 2020. This year, we are requesting contributions to purchase two Optimum-UV Enlight System devices for Asante Ashland. This ultraviolet state-of-the art technology is designed to deliver the fastest and most effective sterilization to our inpatient rooms and operating suites. It offers an extra layer of protection for patients, visitors and employees. When we selected the project last fall, we had no idea how timely the purchase of this equipment would be for our hospital.

We understand you may be concerned about the impact of the coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) in our community. The Asante website is a good source of reliable, up-to-date information. Please visit Asante.org/covid-19/ to learn more.

You are important to us! Throughout the year, we will look for new ways to connect with you, share updates on the work of Asante Ashland and express our gratitude for your dedication and generosity.

Please call me at 541-201-4014 if you have any questions.
