Imagine a way to help people while having a great time. On Wednesday, Oct. 7th, the Medical Center Foundation broke from tradition and held their 38th annual Fall fundraiser at the Chandelier Ballroom in Hartford. This event is so exciting and fun because there are so many winners. During the event we raised over $15,000 for people who need our help in the community. The programs that help people are the Adult Day Care, Medical Transportation, a Fitness Program, a SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) Program and a Personal Emergency Lifeline Program. Businesses came forward and sponsored the venue, the guest speaker, raffle prizes, auction items and door prizes. So many people came together for the purpose of helping others.
