Milford, MA - October 29, 2018 – The Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation presented a $50,000 donation to the Milford Regional Healthcare Foundation in support of their 2018 Mélange Gala and Live Auction. Rockland Trust is the presenting sponsor of the Foundation’s annual fundraiser to benefit Milford Regional Medical Center. Mélange is known as one of the marquee events in Milford, which attracts guests and business leaders from across the region.
“We’re grateful for the Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation’s investment in our future,” said Edward J. Kelly, president and CEO of Milford Regional Medical Center. “This donation will help our physicians, nurses, and entire team provide the highest quality of care to our patients and their families.”
The Milford Regional Healthcare Foundation manages the fundraising and special events that create a philanthropic culture in support of the Medical Center and the 20-plus towns it serves. Funds raised at this year’s Mélange event will support the complete transformation of the Medical Center’s fourth floor into 15 private patient rooms designed to provide the highest level of comfort and peace for two of the most sensitive areas of patient care – medical oncology and palliative care.
“The Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation is excited to support Milford Regional Medical Center’s mission to provide exceptional healthcare services,” said Edward Seksay, Chair of the Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation Board of Directors. “We are honored to help the Medical Center continue to serve Milford and the surrounding communities now and in the future.”
