Andrew Meier serving as honorary chairman of hospital benefit
MEDINA – A Medina attorney is stepping out of his normal realm to become the honorary chair of Orleans Community Health’s Treasure Island.
Treasure Island will celebrate its 26th year on Nov. 2 at Sacred Heart Club as the annual fundraiser for Medina Memorial Hospital (Orleans Community Health).
“Our hospital is essential to not just the physical and emotional health of the community, but also to its economy and sustainability in the long term,” said Andrew Meier, a partner in the law firm of Webster, Schubel and Meier. “It’s a partner to our Medina Ambulance Service. It’s a critical community amenity that can help attract new residents and businesses.”
Meier continued to say Medina Memorial Hospital has made great strides in the last few years, and Treasure Island will help the hospital grow even further into its essential role.
This growth is already being noticed with the announcement by the Orleans Community Health Foundation that three new doctors have joined the hospital and proceeds from Treasure Island will go toward the purchase of equipment for these doctors, all of whom are able to perform surgical procedures.
The first new doctor is Anees Fazili, a urologist from Rochester who also has an office in Batavia.
The other two doctors are twin podiatrists, Peter and Paul Stasko, who are affiliated with Rochester Regional Health.
“I’m honored to be just one concerned citizen among many others who support this event and the work of healthcare workers in our home town,” Meier said.
Community support is vital to the success of this event, said Heather Smith, executive director of Orleans Community Health Foundation.
“This event cannot be successful without community support,” Smith said. “Treasure Island provides a unique marketing opportunity, touching several hundred individuals, while allowing the community to see donors’ investment back into their hometown healthcare system. Orleans Community Health exists to be your community-focused medical center, providing you and your loved ones with quality services here at home.”
The public can donate to Treasure Island in a variety of ways – by offering an auction item, gift certificate or raffle basket; by purchasing an ad in the program; by making a cash donation; or by purchasing tickets.
