RAHWAY — RWJ Rahway Foundation celebrated the unveiling of its 2012 Donor Recognition Wall and Launch of the Heritage Society at the 6th Annual Celebration on Thursday, May 31.
“We are so pleased to launch our Heritage Society and recognize members who have made commitments to RWJ Rahway to enable the hospital to plan today for tomorrow’s possibilities and challenges,” said RWJ Rahway Foundation President Marlene H. Lubinger. Charter members Bill Mirra and Dr. Michael Chen, and, posthumously, members who made bequests to the hospital since 2000, were recognized for their generosity.
We are so very grateful for the continued generosity and support of our donors,” Foundation Chairperson Bunny Bowen said, adding that everyone listed on the wall makes a difference for the hospital’s patients and our community. RWJ Rahway Board of Governors Chairman Brian Leddy and Kirk C. Tice, hospital president & CEO, reiterated the importance of “community” in our community hospital.
The wall recognizes more than $8 million in philanthropic support to the hospital since 2000.
Members of RWJ Rahway Foundation, the Board of Governors, and the hospital’s leadership team welcomed donors from both the corporate and private sectors. The inscription on the Donor Recognition Wall reads: “The RWJ Rahway Foundation recognizes with gratitude the strong commitment, compassion and philanthropy of the many individuals, physicians, employees, corporations and foundations who through their generosity have helped to continue the more than 90-year tradition of healthcare excellence in our community.”
