  • By

The St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation is pleased to welcome new members and officers to serve in 2009.  The new members include Jennifer Blake, Micheline Lopez-Estrada and Bill Moody.  This year’s officers include President Bonnie Bowes, Vice President Eileen Bildman, Secretary Perry Rothwell and Treasurer Barry Friedman.  The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees with elected officers comprised of a cross section of area business, community and medical leadership.

The St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation is a philanthropic arm of St. Mary’s Hospital, helping to further enhance the hospital’s excellence as a provider of comprehensive health care services, quality medical care and clinical research through philanthropic support of its programs, activities and facilities.

Each year, the Foundation organizes events to generate funds for scholarships to talented Southern Maryland residents who want to pursue a health care degree.  These events have become popular within the Southern Maryland community, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to assist students in reaching their career goals. 

One such event is the upcoming Culinary Infusion, held March 27 at Café des Artistes in Leonardtown.  The event includes a five-course meal paired with wine and a silent auction.  Chef Loic and wife Karleen Jaffres have hosted the event since its inception and offer a variety of delicious culinary creations.  To help benefit this great cause, please purchase your ticket for $100 by contacting Lisa Howard at (301) 475-6455. 

Don’t forget – scholarship applications are due March 15, 2009.  To apply, stop by Human Resources at the hospital and pick up your application or download the application form via  For more information, please call (301) 475-6017.
