Sponsorship makes a difference in the health and well-being of our communities. Ridgeview Foundation invites you to the 29th Annual Golf & Taste Celebration, one of the west metro’s most successful charity events, Monday, June 23, at Island View Golf Club, Waconia Ridgeview helps set the pace to achieve better outcomes for patients and families. It takes hard work to earn such respect ... and even harder work to keep it. Organizations of Ridgeview’s type, size and stature need endowment funds to generate ongoing income. This income serves multiple purposes, among the most important being to buffer against a fluctuating economy and unforeseen hardships that could threaten an organization’s existence.

Keeping quality health care right here—in our region and close to home—is a priority we all share. Ridgeview Foundation has launched a fundraising campaign that will help Ridgeview Medical Center ensure that the people of our community will continue to have access to the best technology, facilities and new services that will allow Ridgeview to continue to provide the highestpossible level of care. The Every Moment Counts campaign focuses on raising endowment funds and capital gifts to help secure Ridgeview’s future.

We can’t rest until the future is secure for Ridgeview. The future health of our region relies on our community today. At this critical time in the life of our organization, almost 100 percent of Ridgeview’s net revenue is required to maintain operations, leaving a very small percentage to invest in technology, facilities and new services. We ask you to please join us. Give for today and for the future.
