Nearly 80 community members recently attended Lutheran’s annual recognition event honoring the members of the 2018 Touching Lives Club and members of the Juliet Anderson Rosch Society.

The Touching Lives Club recognizes donors for their annual giving while the Rosch Society recognizes donors who have established planned gifts in support of Lutheran’s residents.

Gwen Axelson, Lutheran development officer, thanked everyone present.

“You are the energy behind our mission, making sure that everyone we serve has a life well lived,” Axelson said. “Every day. Thank you so much for your faithful and generous giving and for being our partner as we serve our community together.”

Tom Holt, Lutheran president and CEO, provided an update on the current projects at Lutheran, including the Edgewood Commons and the Healthcare Transformation grant that was received from the state Department of Health.

“Your contributions enhance the programs and services here at Lutheran,” Holt said. “You make a difference in the lives of everyone we serve.”

Betty Kelly, Harry Glatz, Siemens Industry and Clark Patterson Lee were welcomed as the newest members of the Cornerstone Council which honors those who have given $10,000 since 1996, when the Lutheran Foundation was first established.
