Williston, ND – CHI St. Alexius Health Williston Foundation has announced the suspension of their 2020 in-person fundraising events. This includes both the Golf Tournament and Centennial Ball slated for July 24 and Oct. 16, respectively.
Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Golf Tournament, Charity Ball, and other organized in-person fundraising events have been cancelled until the safety and well being of our community is assured. The Foundation, in conversation with hospital leadership and the board of directors believe that cancelling these events are in the best interest of our community.
“Following social distancing guidelines for large events is challenging, and although a very difficult decision, it is important we make the safety of our colleagues, volunteers and supporters our number one priority,” said Janna Lutz, Foundation Director. “However, the need to strengthen local healthcare is still critical. This year, community members will have the opportunity to support virtually anywhere, anytime. Stay tuned for more details on how you can virtually support your local health care heroes.”
Our 2020 fundraising goal of $118,000 will purchase state-of-the-art room disinfection technology equipment. The COVID-19 coronavirus amplified CHI St. Alexius Health’s infection control procedures. While we had been working to renovate patient rooms now, the highest priority for our facility is for increased patient and staff safety. This is just one more way CHI St. Alexius Health is committed to your health and safety. Virtual fundraising events hosted by CHI St. Alexius Health Williston Foundation will allow you to contribute to this cause.
The COVID-19 coronavirus has impacted all of us in different ways and our community hospital is no different. During these trying times, our community continues to assist us in our mission: for this we are grateful.
