Akron Children’s Hospital Foundation held a donor reception in Sarasota, Florida on Friday, February 15, 2019. Guests of the Foundation were welcomed by Paul Dutton, Chairman, Akron Children’s Hospital Foundation Board of Directors, and his wife Sallie Tod Dutton. The event included hospital updates from Akron Children’s President and CEO, Grace Wakulchik, as well from Robert McGregor, M.D., Chief Medical Officer. Many also had the opportunity to speak with John Orr, Chairman, Hospital Board of Directors and William Considine, CEO Emeritus.
Attendees heard from Russell and Stephanie Rich, and their daughter Charlotte. The Russells, who live in Tampa, Florida, travel to Akron Children’s for their daughter’s treatment at the Vision Center with Richard Hertle, M.D.
Philanthropic support is critical to the hospital’s mission to provide world-class care and turn no child away for any reason, including inability to pay. Akron Children’s was appreciative of the opportunity to thank so many of our supporters who have made special projects possible at the hospital.
Thank you again to everyone who attended.
