Yacht Club supports Medical Center Catalina Island Yacht Club staff commodore Dr. Bob Herstoff present- ed a check for $11,462 to Catalina Island Medical Center Foundation president Carol Reynolds as part of the club's longstanding and con- tinuous support of the Medical Center. The funds were raised during this year's Superweek festivities, which included a dinner show at the club featuring The Four Preps and a golf cart rally. When making the presentation Dr. Herstoff, formerly a member of the medical center's foundation, emphasized that the club's continuing support is derived from the belief that a hospital is one of a city's most valuable assets. By supporting the hospital everyone can take comfort in knowing that when the need arises it will be there. r,lw, im//lI I olln 8lout mblklh Pml 9avmnl FrlmkCmMo 00Oomw W00neR00. Rki MNd I/mdw.

Last week, the Ahmanson Foundation, a major Los Angeles philanthropic organization, gave $25,000 in support of the Medical Center Foundation's commitment to raise the majority of the cost to replace the nearly 30-year-old equipment. "We are thrilled to accept this donation," said Carol Reynolds, president of the CIMC Foundation. "This significant eontributi.on is a leap forward in our quest to up- grade essential equipment used by both residents and visitors" Each year, more than 1,250 x- ray images are taken with the med- ical center's camera, which was originally installed 28 years ago. Since then, major advances have been made in radiology. "New de- velopments in the technology mean a better experience for the patient," said Medical Center CEO John Friel. In addition to purchasing new x- ray cameras, the Medical Center's radiology department will need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new equipment. The complete project is estimated to cost approx- imately $250,000. Last year, the Medical Center Foundation Board of Directors vot- ed to raise and contribute $175,000 toward that effort. "We're very grateful that the foundation has stepped up to the plate and that their efforts are generating these types of commit- ments," Friel said. "This partnership between the medical center and the foundation will result in benefits for everyone the hospital serves." Foundation President Reynolds said fund-raising efforts are con- tinuing.. "This grant is just part of our on-going work," Reynolds said. "We are also working on our an- nual appeal and will soon begin planning for our annual Oscar Night gala." Tax deductible donations can be made to the Catalina Island Medi- cal Center Foundation by sending a check to P.O. Box 524, Avalon CA 90704.
