On July 27, at an event at the HMH Cancer Care Center, Hardin Memorial Health Foundation received an $80,000 gift from local entrepreneur, Kelly Emerine. Inspired by this generous gift, HMHF board member Mike Bowers announced a challenge to all local entrepreneurs encouraging them to follow Emerine’s example and give to the Foundation.
He called the Emerine’s gift tremendous.
“This is what philanthropy looks like,” said Bowers. “A young mother of two and entrepreneur in the heartland of America is setting a generous example that all of us should follow.”
Bowers, on behalf of other entrepreneurs, presented a $20,000 check to the HMH Foundation.
“I hope this is just a start to raising more money for 3D Mammography and cancer care,” said Bowers. “Gifts of every size make a difference for patients and cancer patients.”
HMHF Chairman Joe Prather expressed his pride in our community, explaining that people here understand the importance of a strong HMH and of providing the best healthcare for Central Kentucky families.
“We cannot take our strong and growing health system for granted,” said Prather. “We have to do our part to make it viable long into the future and that is exactly what Kelly and other local entrepreneurs are doing here today. We encourage others to give to the Foundation so that patients can continue to have access to the most advanced care.”
