The Auxiliary

The Midwest Medical Center Auxiliary Foundation is a group of volunteers who meet the 1st Tuesday of every month, except the summer months. The group organizes fundraising events, operates the gift shop and helps with other tasks for the hospital and Senior Care. The Auxiliary sponsors fundraising activities that enable the Auxiliary to donate items that directly enhanced patient care to various departments in both the hospital and the Senior Care. Fundraising events include the annual Tree of Love event, Chicken Dinners, Coffee Cake Sales, Culver’s Share Nights and Fashion Shows.
