ALGONA – It was a night of fun and dancing and an evening to raise money to continue growing the Kossuth Regional Health Center Foundation’s Endowment Fund.
“Swing Under the Wing” was the 14th annual Legacy Ball and it raised more than $74,760. All the funds will go toward the endowment fund. The endowment fund is a fund where KRHC only uses the income that is earned from it each year to assist in new equipment and technology or to help fund remodeling or addition projects.
“The more we are able to grow our endowment fund, the more funds that are available each year to assist KRHC,” said Nancy Grandgenett-Besch, Foundation Director for Kossuth Regional Health Center in an email on Monday. “Because KRHC is a critical access hospital and funding reimbursements from insurance companies and Medicare are unpredictable, the funds we are able to offer from our endowment each year greatly assist KRHC to stay current in medicine and technology.”
