Radisson Improving Stroke Survivor Success
Earlier this year, the Borgess Foundation was contacted by the Radisson Plaza Hotel & Suites, located in downtown Kalamazoo, with an exciting opportunity. They wanted to learn more about the Borgess Stroke Program so they could hold a fundraiser.
“There are several employees on our team that have either had friends or family affected by a stroke or have experienced one themselves,” said Denise Grosser-Welch, Revenue Manager at the Radisson. “We understand first hand just how important it is to raise not only funds, but raise awareness as well.”
This endeavor raised over $1,600 for stroke education. When asked why they chose Borgess as a recipient, Grosser-Welch said “Borgess is a key component to not just our downtown community, but all of southwest Michigan. Borgess consistently demonstrates what it means to be a thoughtful and caring community partner. Raising awareness and funds for such a meaningful cause is something we are grateful we have the opportunity to do.”
We are so grateful to the Radisson for their generosity. If you know of a company who would like to be more involved at Borgess, please contact the Borgess Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tree of Love
On December 1, 2016, the annual Tree of Love event was held to raise funds for uninsured or underinsured women to receive mammography and other breast health care services.
