The spirit of giving is still alive and well in Ely as was demonstrated on July 14th and 15th at the home of the Jamnick family. Six great-great grandchildren of Edward Zupancich, a founding member of the Ely-Bloomenson Community Hospital Board of Directors, held a lemonade stand to raise money to purchase each of the young family members a share in the hospital.
“Our grandparents (Ed and Molly) were supporters of this facility through being a board member and Molly being a hospital volunteer. We feel that it is important for this younger generation to be part of this community we love and the community support is important. Through the community, we raised $483 and with the support of our family, we contributed the rest to make their $600 goal for each one to have a share,” said family member Theresa Harris.
The family knew of the goal set by Community Benefit and Public Relations Coordinator for the hospital, Jodi Martin, to sell 60 new shares throughout 2017 in celebration of our 60th Anniversary and used their annual “Jamnick Family Fun Weekend” as an amazing way to help the hospital reach that goal!
