The inaugural "Chefs Boy R We!" event will take place on Saturday, September 21 at 6p.m. at the Anderson Country Club.
This unique fundraiser will showcase the cooking talents of approximately 70 area men, with all funds raised supporting two Community Hospital Anderson Foundation programs, Support Our Students (SOS) and the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program.
SOS is a brand new initiative that will allow school nurses in all of the public schools in our county to purchase clothing, nutritional items and medications that are needed on a daily basis by many students in our county. Every day our school nurses see the unmet health care needs faced by many students and this program will allow them to meet those needs.
The AED program has been saving lives in Madison County for several years. The program started in 2002 when the Foundation partnered with some other organizations to place AED’s in all of the Madison County Sheriff’s cars. These officers are oftentimes the first to arrive on the scene where someone is in cardiac arrest. The Foundation then partnered with the Madison County Community Foundation to place AED’s in all of the public schools in Madison County. Since that time, AED’s have also been placed in several public buildings such as the library, Paramount Theatre and Mounds Mall. This program is directed by Holly Renz, RN who provides training and ongoing maintenance of the AED’s.
Both of these programs help the Foundation fulfill our mission of meeting the healthcare needs of our community.
We hope you will plan to attend!
