Proceeds from the 30th-annual Clara Barton Foundation benefit event will help fund the replacement system at Clara Barton Medical Center.

HOISINGTON – Clara Barton Foundation Executive Director Michelle Moshier is hosting this week’s Hoisington Chamber Coffee at the Clara Barton Medical Center. Her topic for the coffee which starts at 9:30 a.m. today is the annual fundraising event held each year to benefit Clara Barton Medical Center. 

The 2023 event will be held on June 16-17. The golf tournament will be held at Lake Barton Golf Course on June 16, and the dinner and auction will be held at the Columbus Club, formerly the Hoisington Knights of Columbus Hall, on June 17. 

“The Foundation raises funds through various events, including our annual benefit event,” said Moshier. “This year we are celebrating a significant milestone with our 30th Annual benefit themed ‘Full Steam Ahead.’

“It represents our remarkable progress over the past 33 years, thanks to the generosity of many,” she said. “Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of our community through support of Clara Barton Medical Center. Generosity fuels this event’s success, propelling us forward with great momentum.”

Tickets for the golf tournament are $95 per person/$380 per team, and tickets for the dinner and auction are $30 per person. Tickets must be purchased no later than June 8.  

New at the dinner this year is a drawing for a door prize, Moshier said. Also celebrating its 30th anniversary, the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad Association is giving two tickets to ride the only steam-powered railroad in Kansas. 

Winners board the train at Abilene’s historic Rock Island Deport for a two-hour trip through the Smoky Hill River Valley. 

Other event details

• Golf Tournament: The golf tournament will be a four-person scramble with awards for three flights, top three places.

• Dinner and Auction: The dinner will feature a buffet meal and the auction will feature various items donated by local businesses and individuals.

All proceeds from the event will go to support the Clara Barton Medical Center by purchasing a new telemetry system to use in surgery recovery, in-patient care, and emergency room treatment. Telemetry is used to monitor the health of patients, such as heart rate, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels.
