Annual Meeting

On May 4, 2015, the Lowell General Hospital Auxiliary held its annual meeting at the Stonehedge Inn and Spa. Members and guests enjoyed a luncheon, the presentation of gifts to Lowell General Hospital and the Cancer Center followed by a fashion show. Members of the Auxiliary and Lowell General staff modeled summer dresses and accessories from Fresh of Nashua.

As part of the Auxiliary’s long history of seeking out areas of greatest need at Lowell General Hospital, the group pledged to donate $125,000 to provide one 3D/tomosynthesis upgrade for the 2D mammography units at the Saints campus. Tomosynthesis is state-of-the art digital mammography technology that provides superior image quality, improves cancer detection and reduces recall rates.

“The Lowell General Hospital Auxiliary is proud to focus our efforts to advance the screening technology and consider it a worthwhile endeavor that will greatly benefit local women,” said Carrie Meikle, Auxiliary President.

In addition, proceeds from the Daffodils and Desserts fundraiser will be used to purchase bariatric chairs for the Cancer Center, as well as 250 books for our Palliative Care Department that works with families on end-of-life issues. The remaining funds will be used to purchase gift cards to help cancer patients, who are experiencing difficult economic circumstances, to enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. The Auxiliary generously matched the proceeds of their fundraiser to benefit TeamWalk for CancerCare.

Since its inception in 1951, the Auxiliary has provided its members, the hospital and the community-at-large with the opportunities to enjoy social events, such as A Winter Affair and Taste of the Town, purchase unique items and engage in educational healthcare programs while providing important financial support for the hospital.

Annual contributions made by the Lowell General Hospital Auxiliary are either designated for a special purpose or used by the hospital as most needed.
