Kenmore Mercy Foundation Announces 2017 A Tribute To Angels Honorees
During its annual A Tribute to Angels event, to be held on Friday November 17 at Salvatore’s Italian Garden, the Kenmore Mercy Foundation will recognize several individuals whose dedication to the hospital and the community has been extraordinary. This year’s honorees are the Sisters of Mercy, James M. Millard, RPh, and David F. Pfalzer, MD.
Mr. Millard, president & CEO of Kenmore Mercy, and Dr. Pfalzer, a family practioner with Kenmore Family Medicine, will receive the Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award. The Sisters of Mercy, the hospital’s founding order, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award was established in 1980 by the Kenmore Mercy Foundation. The award honors outstanding individuals in the community who have demonstrated a dedication to community service, visionary leadership, excellence in medical care and the ideals of unselfish service towards others – qualities exemplified by Sister Mary Mechtilde O’Connor, RSM, foundress and first administrator of Kenmore Mercy.
The Lifetime Achievement Award was created in 2008 to honor past recipients of the Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award who continue to remain active and supportive of the Foundation, and is a fitting tribute to individuals whose years of unwavering spirit and determination continue to benefit our hospital and our community.
A Tribute to Angels features a night of fine cuisine, auctions, recognition and achievement, while raising funds to benefit Kenmore Mercy Hospital.
