Funds Raised at the 12th Annual Women of Vision Luncheon to Benefit Women’s Health

May 11, 2016

On April 28, the Riverview Health Foundation hosted its 12th annual Women of Vision Luncheon for 350 attendees and successfully raised more than $50,000, which benefits women’s services, programs and equipment at Riverview Health. At the luncheon, the Women of Vision Giving Club grants, totaling $28,990, were presented to the following areas and programs at Riverview Health: Employee Wellness, Maternity Center, Radiation Oncology, Rehab & Fitness, Touch of Love and Women’s Boutique. These grants are awarded to programs at Riverview Health that impact the lives of women and girls in Hamilton County.

“This event is so much more than just a luncheon and this year was no different,” said Megan Wiles, executive director of Riverview Health Foundation. “The purpose is to bring the community together and focus on the amazing stories of talented women so attendees leave feeling inspired to follow their dreams—all while raising awareness and support for women’s health.”

Pat Fox, who recently retired as president and CEO of Riverview Health, was the featured speaker. She shared memories and highlights of her 45-year career serving the healthcare needs of people and their families across Illinois and Indiana. The Riverview Health Foundation presented Pat with an award in appreciation for all her years of service. The Indiana Hospital Association also presented a proclamation to Pat and the Hamilton County Commissioners presented the Continental Award for her outstanding efforts of service to the community.

The Women’s Retreat Impact Award—given to women who best exemplify life balance through who they are and the time, talent and energy they give through business, civic or philanthropic leadership—was presented to Michelle Corrao, assistant director of Prevail, Inc.
