The Women’s Golf Association of the Hendersonville Country Club raised over $5,000 on August 11 for Women Helping Women at their annual 18 Hole Step Aside Scramble. This year’s fundraising event was not club wide due to COVID-19, but nevertheless garnered strong support by the Golf and Tennis Tournaments and members of the Country Club.

Women Helping Women will use the proceeds from this and other donations to provide assistance and support to women in need, including the purchase of a Mobile Mammography Van. The van will be used to bring testing, diagnoses, and consultation to women at their homes, places of work, churches and community centers.
Women Helping Women was started in 1998 as a way to offer financial and emotional support to women facing various medical conditions. To date, the program has raised over $2 million for financial assistance to un- and under-insured women, as well as funding equipment, facilities, and services for women at Pardee Hospital.

Pardee Foundation’s Woman of Hope Awards honor women in the community with stories of courage, determination, and will as they have faced cancer and other serious health conditions.

Words from the new Executive Director, Myles Fish:
Have we ever been more aware of our healthcare systems than we are right now? I don't think I have. I think I have been guilty of taking healthcare for granted - so long as I was not feeling ill. Covid-19 has changed that.
In new and dramatic ways, we have come to understand that everyone's health could potentially impact the health of an entire community. It was this realization that caused me to look at and then apply for the Executive Director position at the Pardee Hospital Foundation. I was surprised at what I found.
A group of Kenmure Drive residents have been gathering in their neighborhood to show their thanks to healthcare workers at Pardee Hospital and AdventHealth Hendersonville.
Every year the generous donors in Kenmure organize a series of neighborhood events to raise much needed financial support for Pardee Hospital and the Foundation. Since COVID-19 arrived, the "Kenmure Masketeers" have made over 350 face masks for the patients at the Hospital. And now, here they are again, showing how OUR community supports OUR hospital.
Thank you to the wonderful residents at Kenmure!!
