Oconomowoc, Wis. – The Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation raised over $146,000 at its annual gala while honoring a local philanthropist.
More than 250 people attended the annual event, this year held Oct. 16 at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee.
John C. Kasdorf, of Hartland, received the foundation’s 5th Annual Spirit of Giving Award. This award was established by the foundation to recognize and honor individuals who have distinguished themselves through their support of Rogers and have inspired others to do the same.
Kasdorf was a driving force behind the development of Rogers’ spiritual care program, which currently serves about 3,100 patients per year.
“As a successful business man with a giving heart, John’s advice, counsel and financial support continue to be a sustaining resource at Rogers,” said Marion Heinz, Immediate Past Director of the Foundation.
All of the money raised at the 2010 gala is donated directly to patient care. The Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation cultivates awareness of the hospital’s mission and builds long-term relationships for philanthropic support.
