Reinvesting Time and Resources to Expand State-of-the-Art Health Care Services and Technologies in Our Community



Garden Jubilee

On Friday, May 13, 2016, RMC Foundation’s Inaugural Martha Vandervoort Garden Jubilee debuted at the Longleaf Botanical Gardens in Anniston.  This inaugural special event raised more than $100,000, far surpassing the foundation’s initial goal of $60,000. We honored the life of a special person, raised money for an educational scholarship and brought the community together for an evening of comradery and hope for future generations.

Proceeds from the event are earmarked to fund the Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship.  The scholarship was created to honor the life and legacy of longtime Anniston resident and philanthropist, Martha Vandervoort. The Martha Vandervoort Garden Jubilee is an annual event and each year will award an annual renewable $6,000 scholarship to a graduating senior from Calhoun County.

Martha’s most valuable gift was investing in people in our community.  She recognized pure qualities in others, particularly those with a servant’s heart. This is a way for the RMC Foundation to carry on Martha’s mission and create a legacy scholarship in her honor.

Vandervoort Scholarship

The 2016 Inaugural Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship was created to honor the life and legacy of longtime Anniston resident and philanthropist, Martha Vandervoort.

The Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship has been established to celebrate students who have made an impact in our community through leadership and community service.  Our hope for the Memorial Scholarship is to invest in individuals with a servant’s heart that reflects Martha’s legacy of life.  The Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship offers renewable, 4 year $6,000 scholarships to Calhoun County students with financial need who display academic achievement, a commitment to serving other, strong work ethic and leadership qualities. Because this year’s inaugural fundraiser was such an overwhelming success, the RMC Foundation awarded not one, but two, scholarships to deserving candidates.

A full scholarship was awarded to Bailey Matthews, a senior from Oxford High School. A partial scholarship was awarded to Emily Robertson, also of Oxford High School, to cover books and fees not covered by her other award.

Recipients of the scholarship were chosen through an application and interview process with a selection committee.  To be eligible for the scholarship, students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA, demonstrate they have a financial need and reflect the embodiment of charity.

Relay for Life

In May, Regional Medical Center (RMC) held its annual Basket Raffle fundraiser for the 2015 American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  Each hospital department donated a themed basket, and donations were received for a chance to win baskets valued at up to $1200 each.

RMC employees have taken ownership of fundraising for Relay through a variety of methods such as basket raffles, bake sales, t-shirts and collecting “Change for a Cure.“  RMC supports the American Cancer Society with funds raised for cancer research in the fight against cancer. ACS resources help people right here in Calhoun County and across the nation.

Each May, RMC staff and volunteers join at Oxford High School Stadium from 6 pm to 12 am midnight as part of the hospital activities to celebrate Relay for Life. For more information about Relay, visit www.relay.acsevents.org.

“Every year, more than 1.5 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer, including more than 25,000 in our home state of Alabama,” said Louis Bass, CEO of RMC. “While no one can guarantee outcomes, many patients rely on RMC for their care and for hope in their journeys of survival. Likewise, we rely on American Cancer Society resources to support those journeys.”

In October, local residents are invited to join RMC staff as they host the annual ‘Pink-Out Photo’ for hospital staff and a check presentation to the American Cancer Society’s for funds raised during RMC’s annual fundraising activity for Relay for Life.  Last year, RMC Foundation presented a check to the American Cancer Society (ACS) for more than $40,000 that was raised that year to fund ACS cancer related programs in the area.

The Pink Out Event was in conjunction with the Brake for Breakfast, we offered shirts that showed our support in recognition of breast cancer awareness day and all came together for a picture.
