The Glenn Medical Foundation has presented Glenn Medical Center Administrator Barbara Rydgren with a check for $39,919.00, representing the net proceeds from the 2015 Splendor in the Valley Fundraiser. Foundation President David Vodden and incoming President Jim Lambert delivered the donation.
Splendor in the Valley is held every September at the beautiful Worthington Ranch, southwest of Orland. The late Cal Worthington hosted the event since its inception, and his family is now carrying on the tradition. Over the years Splendor in the Valley has raised nearly $540,000.00 to support Glenn Medical Center, Glenn County's only hospital.
Ground is expected to be broken on a new hospital building early next year, and the proceeds from the 2015 fundraiser will go to help pay for equipment for one of two surgical suites.
Meanwhile, GMF board member Eileen Worthington has announced that Splendor in the Valley will be held again, in September of 2016.
