Highline Medical Center Foundation’s ‘Hats On For Highline’ Seeking Sponsors
The Highline Medical Center Foundation will host its 3rd annual Hats On for Highline (we’re Media Sponsors), a Kentucky Derby Day fundraiser at Emerald Downs race track on Saturday, May 7th, and they’re seeking Corporate Sponsors.
This is a fundraiser for the HMC Foundation, a nonprofit that raises money for patient care services, medical equipment, community outreach and continuing staff education at Highline Medical Center. Funds raised benefit programs, patients, and services throughout South King County.
So get your hats on and get ready to enjoy live horse racing, a silent auction, scrumptious buffet and a fun event hosted by TheTukwila Blog’s own Scott Schaefer. Many guests will be wearing beautiful hats ready to participate in the popular and very competitive hat contest. Some may even have silly hats (like Scott…). All of this takes place trackside in a VIP tent with a great view of the horses.
The Foundation is thankful to all its sponsors for helping support this event, especially this year’s presenting sponsor – Merchants Credit Association (MCA). Hats on for Highline was launched in 2009 to raise awareness of Highline’s Cancer Center.
“We are honored to play such a vital role in supporting Highline’s healthcare in the community,” says MCA’s President Dave Quigley. Philanthropic support plays an increasingly important role in the hospital’s ability to ensure its continued excellence in patient-centered care in our community.
