IT’S “GAME ON” AT THE JUNE 2017 CLAY SHOOT
The 9th Annual Andrew H. Campbell Memorial Sporting Clays Tournament will take place on Thursday, June 22 at Hudson Farm Club in Andover, NJ. This annual event is a partnership between the family and friends of Andrew H. Campbell and the Trinitas Health Foundation.
“Since Andrew H. Campbell’s death in 2007, his family has chosen to continue his dedication to Trinitas by establishing the Andrew H. Campbell Memorial Endowment in his memory,” explains Nadine Brechner, Chief Development Officer, Trinitas Health Foundation. “As former chairman of the Board of Elizabeth General Medical Center and later chairman of Trinitas Health and Hospital, Andy Campbell played an integral role in the merger that created Trinitas. He later worked tirelessly to set the direction for Trinitas that now serves more than 400,000 patients each year.”
The Clay Shoot welcomes both experienced and inexperienced shooters. For those who don’t wish to participate in the traditional shooting experience, a guided nature photo “shoot” option is available as well. The event will conclude with a fantastic pig roast and an awards presentation. Proceeds will benefit the Trinitas Nursing Scholarship Program.
For further information about this event, contact Nadine Brechner or Joanne McGann at Trinitas Health Foundation, (908) 994-8249.

SNYDER FOUNDATION LEAVES LASTING IMPRESSION
Representatives from the Harold B. and Dorothy A. Snyder Foundation (left) visited Trinitas Regional Medical Center to get a firsthand look at the Emergency Department’s (ED) amazing transformation. Top on their list was a tour of the ED’s new Diagnostic Imaging Unit, since their generous grant helped pay for the unit’s technologically advanced 128 Slice CT Scan. This state-of-the-art equipment allows physicians to diagnose and treat patients far more quickly than ever before. The trustees pictured left stand proudly by their plaque in the Diagnostic Unit, which commemorates their beloved trustee Phyllis Snyder and honors the Snyder Foundation for their generous contribution.
