What kind of events are held by the Foundation?

The Morrison Community Hospital Foundation Board of Directors is constantly looking at creative ways to foster fellowship and in turn, raise funds for projects at the hospital. Examples of those events include:

Open House– We have diligently been working to plan an open house to showcase our new expansion. Save the date of Saturday, October 16 from 1:00 PM-7:00 PM. We will provide tours of the new emergency rooms, operating room, medical surgical rooms, rehab facility, laboratory, plus new billing and patient records rooms. Our radiology department will also be renovated and expanded as well. Entertainment will be provided. Food and beverages will be served. And don’t forget we will be offering silent auction and raffle items and we will gladly accept donations for our expansion. More details to come!

Fall Gala – Typically held in October this is our signature fundraising event. We have enjoyed live music from a variety of musical decades combined with menus popular in those days and a live and silent auction. We have also topped it off with a dessert auction. In 2020 this gala was a virtual event on our Morrison Hospital Facebook page and website. We use the Clickbid software to promote silent auction items. That website is- https:\\mchf.cbo.io. You can view and bid on auction items. Donations are always welcome. In the past ten years, we have purchased equipment for the hospital and raised funds to purchase land for expansion. 

Christmas Tour of Homes – This event will be held on the first Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday afternoon in December 2-4, 2021. Attendees will have an opportunity to explore four to five festively decorated homes in our area and then gather at the newly renovated Morrison Community Hospital conference room for a nightcap of beverages and desserts. (Postponed in 2020) 

Estate Planning – Each year a local attorney or financial advisor gives a presentation on estate planning. The year the event will be held on Saturday, April 10 at 9:00 AM. (Click here for invitation) This is a good time to learn about these difficult topics as this is an informational meeting – no cost or obligation.  For more information about estate planning click here.

  • Trusts/Wills/Powers of Attorney
  • Estate Tax
  • Leave-A-Legacy – Family/Charities

Employee Campaign – Funds are raised by over 170 Morrison Community Hospital employees to fund expansion projects in our facility.  Over the past two years, employee donors have raised over $15,000 in our annual themed events.
