This yearâs Gala will be honoring highly respected, long-time friend of the Marshall County area, Sam Schlosser, with the Community Spirit Award.Â
Â ”I am certainly honored to participate in the upcoming April 16 Hospital Gala which is designed to raise funds helping to provide health care services to the under served in Marshall County,â said Schlosser.Â âKudos to SJRMC/Plymouth for their continued efforts to help those who need the help.Â I invite all to join the hospital in making this year’s event a great success by making a contribution, buying a table or attending.”
Schlosser has been President of The Plymouth Foundry since 1984, and has been a fixture in the Marshall County area dating back to, and before, his grade school days at Jefferson School in Plymouth. Following completion of Graduate Studies in MSIA and MSE, Schlosser served in the United States Air Force. He has served on numerous community Boards and he is an enthusiastic, active member of numerous Purdue University Alumni Clubs. Sam and his wife Karen continue to donate their time and efforts to many initiatives that improve the Marshall County area.
Â Proceeds from the Catch the Spirit Gala will benefit SJRMCâs Community Health Services for the poor and underserved in Marshall County.Â Over the past 14 years, the Gala has made a remarkable difference for Marshall County residents, raising well over one million dollars. In 2010, SJRMCâs Plymouth campus provided services that assisted 3,361 patients and included free medical care and prescription medication assistance as well as transportation, mobile health care screenings and health fairs.
The Gala begins with a reception at 6:00 PM, followed by dinner and program at 7:00 PM. To purchase tickets or for information on underwriting opportunities, call (574) 935-2189.
