St. Joseph’s Health Foundation’s 2017 Legacy Luncheon was held at The Century Club on Tuesday, October 31. 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. 2017 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.
