Matagorda Regional Medica Center Foundation’s ‘Decade of Giving’ donors were honored Monday night, Nov. 6.

   The Matagorda Regional Medical Center Foundatrion was formed in 2007 and in  the last decade the foundation has raised money to fund medical equipment and capital improvements.   
   “I can’t believe how far we’ve come in 10 years,” Tiffancy Foltyn, the foundation’s executive direcetor, told those attending the “Decade of Giving” Celebration Monday, Nov. 6, at the MRMC Foundation Offices.
   The foundation celebration was for those who have given all of the 10 years.
    The donors were recognized with a special gift. 
   “There are 32 individuals who have given for 10 consecutive years and most of these donors being our employees,” Foltyn said.
   The foundation’s first campaign raised $72,000 and Foltyn remembered, “we were so excited.”
   In the decade since, the foundation  has raised more than  $2 million.
