Richland, Wash. – On November 3, some of our community’s most generous individuals and businesses gathered together to celebrate philanthropy at Kadlec. The annual event, Celebration of Philanthropy, is hosted by Kadlec Foundation to recognize charitable individuals and business members of our community who give generously of their time and make impactful investments towards programs and services that benefit patients at Kadlec Regional Medical Center.

This year’s recognized philanthropists are:

  • Sustaining Philanthropist Award – Sam and Mary Volpentest

A highlight of the evening was the call for donations towards mammography services at Kadlec.
