Pardee Hospital Foundation hosts a variety of events to keep donors, patients, families and the community in touch with the Foundation and the hospital.
Fundraising events provide meaningful and enjoyable ways for individuals, corporations, businesses and community partners to support the hospital. Through your involvement with the Tournament of Champions and Women Helping Women, Pardee is able to increase its margin of excellence to better serve the community.
Other events held throughout the year focus on education and appreciation. This year we will have our Diamond Jubilee Gala in June, which celebrates the positive impact of charitable giving by awarding the Philanthropist of the Year as well as the Physician of the Year.
Pardee Hospital Foundation founded Women Helping Women in 1998 to address a morbid trend: Henderson County had the second highest death rate for breast cancer in the state.
Today, thanks in large part to Women Helping Women and other charitable health-care programs, we have reduced the morbidity rate in Henderson County well below the state average to the lowest 15 percentile – 85th out of 100 counties in the North Carolina.
Since 1998, Women Helping Women campaigns have raised more than $1.6 million for equipment, facility renovations, screenings and health-care services for women. In 2012, Pardee Hospital Foundation's Women Helping Women campaign raised $135,000 to add to the on-going Women Helping Women fund for financial assistance for uninsured women for their healthcare needs at Pardee Hospital.
Nearly 1,000 women have received financial assistance from Women Helping Women funds since 1998. Our goal for 2013 is to raise more than $130,000 so more lives can be saved.
The Women Helping Women Committee is dedicated to improving the health of uninsured and under-insured women in Henderson County. Contributions provide screenings, treatments, services, improved facilities and new equipment purchases to meet the most critical health needs of women in Henderson County.

Pardee Hospital Foundation's annual Tournament of Champions golf event was held on May 13th at the Kenmure Country Club in Flat Rock. Thanks to the generous support of donors like you, the tournament raised $100,000 to purchase an angiography imagery device used for imaging in orthopedic, vascular or general surgery, allowing surgeons to do arterial and venous imaging. This would be most often used for diagnosing and removing blood clots and placing vascular stents while doing a bypass.
Since 1996, the Tournament of Champions has raised over $1.9 million to support Pardee Hospital facilities, equipment, and programs as well as providing affordable quality healthcare in our community.
We invite you to consider supporting next year's tournament, which will highlight the Foundation's 19th anniversary as well as directly benefit patients and services of Pardee Hospital and the community.
Thanks to a host of generous sponsors, the 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee celebration will be an evening of Diamonds in the Sky on Saturday, June 29, 2013.
The announcement of our Pardee Healthcare Philanthropist of the Year always promises to be a highlight of the evening. Pardee Foundation established the annual Healthcare Philanthropy Award to honor a donor who has provided long-term gifts and who volunteers time to Pardee Hospital and the Foundation as well as other healthcare organizations in our community. Recipients of this prestigious award are community leaders who selflessly advocate for healthcare philanthropy and inspire giving in Henderson County.
