Since its inception, the Eaton Rapids Medical Center Auxiliary has continued to provide volunteers and financial support to the hospital. Together, Eaton Rapids Medical Center and the Auxiliary work hand-in-hand to improve healthcare for residents of the greater Eaton Rapids Area.
The men and women of the Auxiliary work on various fundraising events such as the annual Fall Gala Dinner & Silent Auction as well as Purse Bingo. The Auxiliary also operates the Owl’s Perch Gift Shop, located in the main lobby of the Medical Center. Funds raised are used for facility improvements and equipment purchases exclusively at Eaton Rapids Medical Center.
The Auxiliary holds two general membership meetings each year featuring informative speakers covering a variety of topics. Our members have diverse backgrounds, ranging from working professionals to retirees. Membership dues are $10.00 per year for those that donate 30 or more service hours annually.
Applications for membership are available in the hospital lobby, the Owl’s Perch Gift Shop or you may call (517) 663-9510.
