Joe Delagrave to keynote Boscobel Hospital Foundation's Legacy Event
The Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics (BAHC) Foundation cordially invites you to join your friends and fellow community members at the 2nd Annual Legacy Event on Thursday, Oct. 18, at Memories on Maple in Boscobel, Wis. This event offers a unique opportunity to come together for a night of sharing, learning and inspiration while raising money to help support the many initiatives brought to life through Foundation funding.
"We hope the Legacy Event is an opportunity for the community to connect with our vision and mission of local healthcare," shares Natalie Tollefson, BAHC Foundation Director. "We are honored to have Joe Delagrave as our keynote speaker as his journey has been incredible. We are excited for him to share his story of adversity, determination and perseverance with our event guests."
Delagrave is a husband, father, professional counselor, and elite athlete. What makes Delagrave unique is his ability to accept and excel despite the adversity placed on his journey. In 2004, Delagrave was involved in a traumatic boating accident the summer after his freshman year at Winona State University, where he was awarded a football scholarship. He was paralyzed below the chest, but says it was his greatest opportunity. Since his accident, Delagrave has chosen to embrace this unique opportunity and use it as a means of inspiring others to be the best they can be. Delagrave began playing wheelchair ruby and eventually earned a spot on the 2009 U.S. National Team. After hard work and dedication, Delagrave became a member of the 2012 Paralympic Rugby Team that won the Bronze medal in London. Now he has his sights set on the goal of Tokyo in 2020.
Gundersen Boscobel CEO David Hartberg will offer a glimpse into operational and patient care functions at Gundersen Boscobel, as well as share the progress underway to meet the changing healthcare needs of the communities Gundersen Boscobel proudly serves.
The Legacy Event will begin at 5 p.m. with a cocktail and social hour followed by a dinner buffet and program at 6 p.m. Business casual attire is suggested.
Seating is limited. RSVP by Monday, Oct. 7, by calling Natalie Tollefson at (608) 375-6300 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are just $50 per person and checks can be made payable to BAHC Foundation.
"There will be no additional fundraising at the event. It remains our goal to leave Legacy guests feeling fulfilled and better connected to the many local causes supported through the Foundation," explains Tollefson. "Thanks to our generous event sponsors, tickets sales will allow the Foundation to truly 'enrich every life' we touch."
