The Scoop: Hospital TOAST virtual fund raiser.

LUDINGTON — Today on a special edition of MCP’s The Scoop, Kate Krieger-Watkins speaks with Spectrum Health Kaley Peterson, director of foundation and community services at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital about this year’s major fundraiser for the hospital’s foundation. Typically the foundation hosts a summer gala. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the foundation will instead hold a virtual event called TOAST to help raise funds for local community benefit programs that address health issues and inequities in our community. School health, chronic disease, and obesity are key areas of focus and need. Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital Win with Wellness seeks to expand its programming to support this important work within our community. The virtual TOAST event is an opportunity to get creative, have fun, and spread joy, while raising funds for a great cause. 

All funds raised stay local and directly support our community.  

How to participate.
