The Friends of Brigham and Women’s Hospital—long accustomed to giving generously to the hospital of their time, talent and treasure—recently received warm congratulations for their efforts from hospital leaders and staff members. At a reception hosted by BWH Trustee Beth Martignetti and her husband Carmine, BWH President Jeffrey Otten thanked the volunteer group for their tireless fundraising efforts and service to patients and families. Since 1980, the Friends have raised nearly $4 million in cash and donations of equipment. This year alone, members awarded approximately $300,000 in capital requests to various groups throughout the hospital. Major fundraising ventures include the Gift Shop; sales of baby photos to new parents; book and jewelry sales; and special events such as the popular Charity Golf Classic held every fall. To discover how you can support or become a part of this vital volunteer group, call the Friends Office at ext. 8125.
