Piedmont Walton is a non-profit hospital, and consequently relies on donations to expand its health care services.
“The proceeds from the cookout will be used to offset the $50,000 cost of a nursery transport bed with a stand-alone infant resuscitation system,” according to a press release. “This piece of equipment will bring life-saving capabilities virtually anywhere in the hospital, providing fast, easy, integrated access to critical equipment needed for safe, effective resuscitation of newborns.”
Tickets to the fundraiser cost $15. T-shirts cost $20, and supporters can purchase a $30 “bundle” offer for both a ticket and a T-shirt. Sponsorship opportunities begin at $250 and reach as high as $5,000.
