Noblesville—On April 17, Riverview Health Foundation hosted the 10th Annual Women of Vision Luncheon. The luncheon was created in 2004 to bring together interesting and talented women to educate them about their health and inspire them to follow their dreams. Over the last ten years, Riverview Health Foundation has reached out to 3,000 women and men who have helped us raise more than $600,000 for women’s services, programs and equipment at Riverview Health. In addition, this year’s luncheon raised nearly $62,000 to help fund women’s initiatives.
Riverview Medical Group physician, Amy Banter, MD, and her sister, Cynthia Husted, PhD, shared their knowledge of holistic medicine and Dr. Husted’s story of strength and healing after being bitten by a black widow spider. Dr. Husted was also presented with the Women’s Retreat Impact Award, which is 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.
Lastly, the Riverview Health Foundation was honored to present eleven ‘Women of Vision Giving Club’ grants, totaling $28,287, to the following areas and programs at Riverview Health: Maternity Center, OB/GYN Specialists, Rehab & Fitness and Women’s Boutique. These grants are awarded to programs at Riverview Health that impact the lives of women and girls in Hamilton County.
On the day of the event, the attendees opened their hearts by raising $24,879 and 48 women renewed or joined the Women of Vision Giving Club. If you’d like more information on how to join, please contact Jessica Deering at 317.776.7938 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
