The Mission of the Orange Regional Medical Center Auxiliary is to render service to the Medical Center and its patients as well as assist in promoting the health and welfare of the community. The sole purpose of this Auxiliary is exclusively for charitable purposes.
In 2006, three Hospital volunteer organizations merged into one Auxiliary to become the Orange Regional Medical Center Auxiliary. Prior to this merger, the three organizations ~ The Lenten Sewing Club, The Arden Hill Auxiliary and the Horton Auxiliary raised over $3 million for their perspective hospitals. Since becoming one Auxiliary, an additional $1 Million has been donated to the former Arden Hill and Horton Hospitals for various projects. With regard to construction of the new hospital, $750,000 has been donated for the new pediatric wing and the gift shop.
The Auxiliary's fundraising events include:
Tree of Life
Donations of $250 or more can purchase a leaf to place on the tree in honor or in memory of a loved one, co-worker or friend. This is a wonderful way to have a lasting memory that will withstand the test of time.
Jewelry; clothing; scarves; pocketbooks; cooking accessories; artwork; hand- made crafts; cosmetics and much, much more are sold in the cafeteria area of each Campus daily. Twenty percent of the proceeds are donated to the Auxiliary. This fundraiser averages over $30,000 yearly. It is, by far, the Auxiliary's most successful fundraiser.
Tricky Tray Event
For the past two years, the Auxiliary has conducted a Tricky Tray event to raise funds. With more than 100 themed items, raffles and rereshments, this event has become an annual, fun tradition and fundraiser. In 2013, the Tricky Tray was held on October 26th at St. Joseph's in MIddletown.
