Knights of Columbus donates $3,500 to SGMC Foundation’s Partnership Cancer Fund.
At a recent Knights of Columbus family social, members presented a check to the Partnership Cancer Fund. The donation was generated from various fundraising activities hosted by the Knights of Columbus throughout the year.
The Partnership Cancer Fund benefits greatly from generous third-party fundraising efforts, also known as giving circles. These giving circles are a form of shared giving & social networking – from golfers to quilters, runners to bakers – that allows individuals and organizations to turn activities they enjoy into fundraising efforts for the benefit of South Georgia Medical Center’s patients and the Foundation.
“The Partnership Cancer Fund Committee appreciates our giving circle donors for their time and contributions benefiting local cancer patients,” expressed Mary Young Manning, Partnership Cancer Fund committee member.
