Milford Memorial Auxiliary Announces Fundraising Efforts

Thursday, February 26, 2015 | Bayhealth Sussex Campus, Bayhealth Foundation

The exciting announcement in late November of Bayhealth’s decision to build a new health campus on 165 acres of land along Wilkins and Cedar Creek Roads in Milford is just one sign of the positive changes taking place in the Sussex County community.

There’s also news of another change as the Milford Memorial Auxiliary enhances fundraising efforts in support of Bayhealth.   The Auxiliary will continue to support programs and purchase lifesaving equipment for Bayhealth’s Milford Memorial on Clarke Avenue as well as continuing to raise funds for the new health campus.

Members of the Milford Memorial Auxiliary are planning new and expanded fundraising activities in support of Bayhealth and invite the community to join these efforts by participating in these events:

  • The 2nd Annual Bayhealth Foundation Spring Golf Tournament Thursday, May 21 at the Rookery North in Milford. This event will focus on raising funds for the new health campus project in Milford.
  • “A Night with Elvis” featuring dinner and entertainment Friday, May 22 at the Rookery North in Milford
  • Annual BBQ and Auction October 24, 2015 at the Milford Senior Center

In addition to these fundraising events, the Auxiliary continues dedicating time to the Reflections Gift Shop at Milford Memorial. As a not-for-profit organization, Bayhealth greatly values the efforts of the Auxiliary and the dedication they have given to the community since the early 1900’s.

In order to focus on the new fund raising efforts, the Milford Memorial Auxiliary recently made the decision to cancel this year’s Milford Memorial Auxiliary Fair.  The Auxiliary found it increasingly difficult to recruit the volunteers necessary to chair planning committees for the fair and provide staffing on the day of the event.  These two factors were important reasons for the Auxiliary’s decision. 

As the Auxiliary continues important work in support of the new health campus and Clarke Avenue facility, they welcome volunteers to join their efforts. Call 302-430-5622 for more information about upcoming events or joining the Auxiliary.
