At its February meeting, the Mercy Medical Center Council of Leagues presented a check to the hospital representing the proceeds raised from the Council’s annual Tree of Lights Celebration.

“Thanks to the efforts of the Leagues and the overwhelming support of the community, we are proud to make this donation to purchase supplies and equipment that will enhance the care provided to Mercy’s patients,” said Council of Leagues President Barbara Cheslock.

The Council of Leagues is an all-volunteer group of more than 2,000 members representing the various communities Mercy serves, including Rockville Centre, Bellmore/North Bellmore, East Meadow, Floral Park, Garden City, Hempstead, Glen Cove, Hicksville, Syosset, Westbury and more.

Mrs. Cheslock explained that the Leagues raise significant funds for Mercy each year through the local fundraising efforts of the individual groups. Events include monthly luncheons, fashion shows, theatre parties, trips, auctions and raffles, along with support of the major projects for which they join together in the Council of Leagues.

Council Treasurer Doreen Baldwin noted that the Leagues raised more than $135,000 in 2016, with proceeds going directly toward the fulfillment of pledges to the medical center for specific equipment or services. Upcoming campaigns include a 50/50 raffle and the annual Memorial Flag Celebration. For a small donation, memorial flags personalized with the name of a loved one will be placed on Mercy’s lawn from Armed Forces Day through Flag Day.

The Leagues are actively seeking prospective members who are interested in donating their time to raising funds for Mercy while expanding their social horizons. For information, contact the Leagues office at (516) 705-1393.
