NRMC Foundation Hosts 14th Annual Gala
The Nevada Regional Medical Center (NRMC) Foundation hosted its 14th annual gala, “A Totally Eighties Prom Night” on Saturday, Nov 2 at the 3M Clubhouse. Approximately 180 attendees enjoyed a social hour with beverages donated by Missouri Eagle and The Barnes Company, followed by fine cuisine catered by Count On Us Catering. Entertainment for the evening included music of the decade provided by Carl Wayne Productions DJ service and photos provided by Full Frame Photography.
The NRMC 2019 Hero awards were presented to winners of five categories. Andrea Miller, RRT received the award for clinical leader, Terry Messer, MHT - clinical staff, Holly Bush - support leader, Nicole Miller - support staff, and Amanda Turner, MD - physician of the year.
NRMC Chief Executive Officer Steve Branstetter introduced Ross Lawrence of White Ember Financial Planning as the guest speaker. Lawrence spoke to the importance of continuing community support of the hospital through the Foundation and the NRMC Endowment Fund.
Many guests participated in the gala theme by dressing in eighties costumes and formal wear. A few guests were even able to wear their very own prom dresses from high school. Rick Baker and Dani Fine earned titles of “prom king and queen” by raising the most money in fifteen minutes after the candidates were announced.
The Foundation sold tickets for a grand prize drawing of week-long vacation at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico, which was won by Vanessa Leisure.
The gala fundraiser brought in more than $17,000 in donations. Proceeds will be used towards the Foundation’s funding of half the cost of a radio frequency ablation machine recently purchased for NRMC Pain Management. The NRMC Auxiliary has approved the funding of the other half of the $44,800 project.
