Top NewsGet your groove on! TRMC Foundation to hold "That `70s Gala"
The Tift Regional Medical Center (TRMC) Foundation’s annual “Hearts and Diamonds Gala” will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22, 7:00 p.m., at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center and will have a `70s theme this year. Tickets for “That `70s Gala” are $125.00 per person and can be purchased by calling 229-391-3310. All proceeds benefit the TRMC Foundation.
“The gala will include fine food, live `70s music with Party of 5, dancing, and a diamond giveaway,” said Mandy Brooks, TRMC Foundation Executive Director. “We encourage all attendees to dress in the style of the era. It will be a fun and festive evening. You can get your `70s groove on at the gala while supporting a great cause.”
The TRMC Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching healthcare at Tift Regional Medical Center and within the community through fundraising, medical equipment donations, building project assistance, patient experience enhancements, medical scholarships, and more.
Brooks said the TRMC Foundation continues to make quite an impact on the community. In 2019, the foundation’s “Community Fund” provided funding for a mobile clinic, which currently offers medical assistance in Tift County four days-per-week.
“The mobile clinic is beneficial for the health of patients through treatment as well as education on preventive medicine,” Brooks said. “The mobile clinic has also been used for medical screenings and outreach opportunities at health events.”
Brooks said the foundation’s “Community Fund” was also responsible for purchasing nine 12-lead EKG machines for the EMS offices in Berrien, Irwin, Tift, and Turner Counties.
“These life-saving devices are used on a daily basis by our first responders and are necessary for saving the lives of our loved ones,” she stated.
To purchase tickets for “That `70s Gala,” call 229-391-3310. The UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center is located in Tifton at 15 RDC Road, off Interstate 75 at exit 64.
