Valley Hospital Auxiliary Donates $150,000 towards $1.5 Million Pledge 

Ridgewood, New Jersey January 24, 2017  In 2015, the members of Valley Hospital Auxiliary pledged to raise $1.5 million that would be designated to two areas–an endowment for Valley Home Care's Butterflies endowment and towards the Valley’s Child & Adolescent Mental Health Program.  

This month, this extraordinary group of women donated $150,000 to the Valley Hospital Foundation. This was the result of many fundraisers that took place this past fall, including the Tree of Light ceremony, the 61st Annual Ball, the holiday luncheons and boutiques. 

Throughout its 70 year history, The Valley Hospital Auxiliary has raised more than $17 million in support of much-needed healthcare programs and services that have touched thousands of patients and their families.  It consists of more than 1,500 members in 15 branches, and works to fulfill the three-fold mission: to raise funds for valley’s programs and services, provide volunteer service, and serve as community liaison. This benevolent donation designated to these two programs demonstrates their support of Valley’s mission. 

 “The Valley Hospital Auxiliary is an incredible collection of philanthropic women who have been making a meaningful difference in this community since its inception in 1944”, asserts Valley Hospital Foundation Director of Development, Sandy Carapezza. “They are so generous with their time and firmly committed to Valley.  We truly appreciate all they do for Valley.”
