ACH Foundation, Lavery Automotive present Sisters of Charity with gift
Alliance Community Hospital CEO Stan W. Jonas, FACHE and Lavery Automotive Sales and Service of Alliance owner Bill Lavery recently presented the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton with a considerable monetary gift.
"We are so happy to be able to present this check to the Sisters of Charity Foundation as a direct result of our 2012 ACH Foundation Charity Golf Classic, an outing for which Lavery Automotive gracious served as Event Sponsor," said Jonas, referencing the golf scramble hosted by ACH's Foundation in mid-June. It is an annual fundraiser for area charities, among them: the Stark County Homeless Council, which is supported through the Sisters of Charity Foundation.
Jonas and Lavery handed over a check to Joni T. Close, President of the Board of the Sisters of Charity Foundation in the amount of $10,500. The presentation took place at the annual Project Homeless Connect event at the Civic Center in Canton on Thursday. Thousands of people received information on programs and services benefiting the homeless in Stark County and the Sisters of Charity Foundation in conjunction with the Stark County Homeless Council, was one of the main sponsors of the annual initiative.
"We at Lavery's are so proud to sponsor an event that yields such benevolence toward the most important aspect of our community - its members. It's encouraging to see such a well put-together event at the Civic Center to help so many in this area," said Lavery.
Jonas agreed, saying, "This is truly what it's all about; seeing the tangible benefits of charitable events such as our golf outing and being able to witness the good we can, at least in some small way, help spread to those in need within in our own communities."
The monies raised will be used toward SCHC programs and services in Stark County.
