SPRINGVILLE— The Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Foundation’s fifth annual Garden Party is planned for Thursday, May 25, at the Springville Country Club. The foundation’s board announced the event will celebrate the career of Darlene Schrantz, RN, and honor the memory of Dr. William McMahon. Schrantz retired from Bertrand Chaffee Hospital in March after a 44-year career in nursing. McMahon was a longtime physician in Springville, who passed away in 2016.
As the major fundraising event for the BCH Foundation, the Garden Party is a way to focus community support on a single project. The foundation board will use this year’s event to help fund the purchase of a TEE, or a transesophageal echocardiogram. This equipment will be used in the BCH Heart Center.
The Garden Party starts at 5 p.m. and concludes by 8 p.m. The Springville Jazz Orchestra and Hintz of Thunder will provide the musical entertainment.
Tickets are $50 each or $80 per couple and are available at the BCH reception desk. For information and sponsorship opportunities, call the Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Foundation at 592-2871 ext. 1485 or email Kara Kane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
