On June 6th, the 14th Annual McKenzie Health System (MHS) Auxiliary Golf Scramble was held at Woodland Hills raising $16,600. The Auxiliary donated these funds to MHS to help with the recent purchase of a 3D mammography machine.

“The Auxiliary is a very important extension of MHS that represents the local community and invests in the local community through donations like this,” said Steve Barnett, President and CEO of MHS. “We are very appreciative of all of the hard work this group of volunteers puts into helping us attain our goal of exceptional healthcare.”

“It truly is the generosity of our volunteers, sponsors, MHS employees, and community members that made this donation possible,” added Becky Cambridge, Auxiliary President.

Throughout the year, the Auxiliary will continue to raise money. Please keep in mind these other opportunities to be a part of this mission:

  • Fall into the Holiday Spirit Event – November 22nd at Benchwarmers – this event features a silent auction of fall and holiday décor, along with festive holiday drinks and snacks
  • Annual Jewelry Sale – December 5th located in the Hospital Outpatient Lobby from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Founded in 1967, the MHS Auxiliary is comprised of individuals that volunteer thousands of hours. Members donate their time and talents for the benefit of the hospital, working in the gift shop, providing support at community events and coordinating fundraising opportunities.
