1869 Society Luncheon

St. Joseph’s Health Foundation’s Legacy Luncheon was held at Bellevue Country Club on Wednesday, October 29th. The 1869 Society was founded to recognize individuals who demonstrate their deep commitment to St. Joseph’s Health and its mission by making a planned gift. 2016 inductees were presented with 1869 Society medallions and certificates. 

 “We know that many people who are grateful for their care here at St. Joseph’s are generous during their lifetimes, and beyond.  The 1869 Society recognizes our most loyal donors and allows them an opportunity to fit the hospital into their estate plans, providing resources to give us the ability to fund a higher level of care for future generations” said Vincent Kuss, vice president for development.
