This year we will again be hosting the 12th Annual MVH-Suzy Pender Fund Golf Outing, with proceeds going to the Miami Valley Hospital Foundation. We plan to raise money to provide teddy bears to inpatients who are under the age of 18. When a child is brought to the hospital, it can be a very scary experience. It has been found that a gift presented to a child upon admission to the institution is of great therapeutic value. Likewise, a gift given to a youngster when leaving the hospital can make subsequent trips much less frightening. MVH worked with The Suzy Pender Memorial committee to set this fund up in Suzy’s memory in 2005, even having the t-shirts worn by these cuddly bears be in Suzy’s name. Every time a child hugs one of these bears, it would be like getting a comforting hug from Suzy. What a way to be remembered!
If you would like to sponsor one these cuddly bears or donate to the fund, please take a look at our sponsorship sheet here.
