The Geneva General Hospital Auxiliary recently donated $7,000 to Finger Lakes Health to support projects at Geneva General, the Living Centers at Geneva and the Finger Lakes Health Annual Fund.
The donation provided $500 to the Living Centers at Geneva for the purchase of Companion Pets; nearly $400 to the Living Centers for newspaper subscriptions; a $500 scholarship to the New Vision Medical Careers student with the highest overall mentor evaluation average; and more than $5,500 to the Finger Lakes Health Fund, which supports the area of greatest need across the health system.
“Continued support from the Geneva General Auxiliary toward our annual campaigns is very valuable. The Auxiliary’s generosity, along with that of the community at large, makes it possible for us to continue to invest in top-notch facilities, state-of-the-art equipment, access to medical providers, and the services that are most needed in our communities,” said Lara Chatel Turbide, Vice President, Community Services, Finger Lakes Health, and Executive Director, Finger Lakes Health Foundation.
The Foundation has three funds that donors can contribute to: the Finger Lakes Health Annual Fund, which supports the area of greatest need across the health system; the Geneva General Hospital Annual Fund, which supports enhanced access to healthcare services in Geneva and surrounding communities; and the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital Annual Fund, to support enhanced access to healthcare services in Yates County.

The Geneva General Auxiliary raises the funds via its various projects, such as internal sales for employees and the public, including LulaRoe, Collective Goods, Gail Murphy Jewelry, Bling & Things, Thirty One, the Olive Company and others. The Auxiliary also conducted baked goods sales, fish fries, Lottery Board and other drawings, and the annual pine cone memorial tree.
