LANCASTER — The Alpha Charter Guild recently presented Antelope Valley Hospital (AVH) with a check for $45,000, the result of fundraising during 2013.
The donation will benefit the hospital’s Resource Center and Women and Infants Pavilion. The Guild exists to build a healthy community by supporting programs and services that enable AVH to provide high quality care to patients.
“This donation represents a year’s worth of fundraising and is one of the largest single amounts ever raised by the Guild,” said Fran Marroquin, the 2013 Guild president. “This is what we’ve worked so hard for, so it feels good to make a significant contribution to the hospital.”
In honor of the Guild’s 50th anniversary, the 2014 president, Phyliss Reily, has set the fundraising goal at $50,000.
“The Alpha Charter Guild has a long and generous history with Antelope Valley Hospital,” said Dennis Knox, AVH Chief Executive Officer. “I applaud their continued commitment to raising funds for the hospital which directly benefits our patients.”
