Dr. Jim Boerner Nursery-Pediatric Fund Golf Tournament
The Dr. Jim Boerner Nursery-Pediatric Fund provides funding for mission-critical initiatives that improve access to care and improve community health for our pediatric department, nursery and NICU. The Nursery/Pediatric Fund was established in 1984, and serves Labor and Delivery, the Well Baby Nursery, the NICU, and the Pediatric unit at Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford. In 2020, 3,484 babies were born at the hospital, and more than $500,000 was granted from the Nursery/Pediatric Fund.
Wine Around the Square
The Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation’s Power of Pink Fund provides screenings, diagnostics, ultrasounds and MRIs for women in Rutherford County who lack the resources for breast cancer prevention and the early detection of breast cancer. Over the past twelve years, we have raised more than $2,000,000 for local friends and neighbors who need potentially life-saving procedures. Now in its tenth-year, Wine Around the Square continues to provide the greatest source of funding for the Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation’s Power of Pink Fund providing mammograms for underinsured and uninsured women in Rutherford County.
