Funds raised for several non-profits by medical professionals at holiday party.
Seaside Emergency Associates, a leading provider of emergency room services for Ventura County Medical Center (VCMC) and Santa Paula Hospital, turned their holiday party into a benefit for Make-A-Wish, Toys for Tots, Health Care Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Paula.
Dr. Jeffrey Robinson, Dr. Martin Ehrlich, Dr. Scott Speier, Dr. Richard Rutherford, Dr. Stephen Roslansky, and Dr. Theodore Mandryk, asked party guests to make a donation of cash or toys and also hosted a silent auction. $4,400 was raised for Make-A-Wish, and the Health Care Foundation and 3 full boxes of toys were collected for Toys for Tots. In addition, Seaside purchased several dozen craft games and supplies for the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Paula.
Make-A-Wish serves children throughout the Tri-Counties and many are treated at VCMC and Santa Paula Hospital. It means so much to the families of the wish kids, that Seaside Emergency Associates decided to help grant wishes through their holiday party.
Health Care Foundation is currently working on creating a Ronald McDonald family room at VCMC to help the families of children staying at the hospital.
The Boys and Girls Club kids were excited to have some new activities to play during the upcoming season.
Toys for Tots will distribute the collected toys to needy children in the community.
