Junior Auxiliary Board Presents $25,000 Gift to Peninsula Regional
The Junior Auxiliary Board at Peninsula Regional Medical Center recently held its Fall Luncheon at the Georgia House in Salisbury, and took the occasion to present the PRMC Foundation with a check for $25,000 toward its initial pledge for the hospital’s trauma center.
Foundation President Denise Billing and Peninsula Regional President/CEO Peggy Naleppa, MS, MBA, PhD, FACHE, were on hand to accept the donation from Junior Board President Susan Peacock and President-Elect Cynthia Holloway.
The luncheon featured a 9/11 remembrance by Holloway, as well as a brief talk by Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan. Dr. Carolyn Stegman gave a presentation about the history of women in Maryland, including such luminaries as Clara Barton and Harriet Tubman, as well as lesser-known women who have made a difference in the world, such as breast cancer patient advocate Rose Kushner. Stegman said the members of the Junior Auxiliary Board are making a difference as well, as witnessed by their volunteerism and steady contributions to healthcare on Delmarva.
Over its 87-year history, the Junior Auxiliary Board has been contributing volunteer hours and fundraising efforts to support Peninsula Regional Medical Center. To date, the group has donated more than $7 million for Medical Center equipment, programs, nursing scholarships and capital improvements.
