  • The 78th Annual Meeting of the Winthrop Auxiliary recognized the extraordinary accomplishments of the Auxiliary, a dedicated group of individuals whose support of the Hospital is unending.

    Winthrop President & CEO, Daniel P. Walsh extended his sincere gratitude to the Auxiliary and its President, Veronica Renken, stating, "The leadership of this team of creative and selfless individuals who work tirelessly for our Hospital has been inspiring."

    In a demonstration of the group's hard work and commitment to the Hospital, Ms. Renken presented the Auxiliary's generous donation of $100,000 to Richard A. Newhouse, Jr., Chairman of the Board of Directors in continued support of the Pastoral Care and Education Program.

    "You are all amazing individuals, whose compassion for people exemplifies Winthrop's mission of Care without compromise," said Mr. Newhouse, who also announced the installation of the new Auxiliary officers at the meeting.

    Barbara Kohart, Vice President of Administration and a former junior volunteer, also recognized the Auxiliary's many achievements over the past year, which included a most successful Golden Goose Gala run by the Twigs, which raised $45,000. Other events run by the Twigs included the Shirley Weber Memorial Art Show and Sale and the Pediatric Project.

    In addition, the Auxiliary's generous support of the Pastoral Care and Education Program, and its work with Carmela Anglim, Director of Volunteer Services in recruiting and honoring Winthrop's dedicated team of volunteers was also lauded.

    This year's "Auxilian of the Year" was also announced, honoring Margaret Healy for her 50 years of extraordinary service to Winthrop and the Auxiliary.

    Founded as a voluntary hospital more than a century ago, auxilians have been a mainstay of Winthrop. The Auxiliary continues to pledge their unwavering support of Winthrop as they forge ahead into their 79th year of service.
