A record 500 guests gathered to support Kenmore Mercy Hospital on November 22 during the Kenmore Mercy Hospital Foundation's A Tribute to Angels event held at the Buffalo/Niagara Marriott.

Event chair, Lee Ann Vogt and co-chair and Foundation Trustee, James Rykowski, proudly hosted a successful A Tribute to Angels, raising $139,000 net of expenses to benefit Kenmore Mercy Hospital.

This year’s “Fund an Item,” a unique component of the evening’s program which raises funds to purchase a specific item or piece of equipment for the hospital, raised $18,700 to purchase brand new flat screen televisions to be installed in patient rooms at the hospital.

The Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award honorees included Drs. Marcus and Cindy Romanowski and John and Betsy Sullivan. The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Dr. Edward and Mrs. Margaret Stehlik.

The Lifetime Achievement Award was created to honor past recipients of the Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award who remain active and supportive of the Foundation, the hospital and our community today.

Major sponsors of the event included the Penfold Family, John and Betsy Sullivan, Keller Technology Corporation and Dr. Thomas and Mrs. Kim Brewer.
