Congratulations to the Riverview Hospital Foundation on another successful Women of Vision Luncheon! The Riverview Hospital Foundation created the annual Women of Vision Luncheon in 2005 to educate women in Hamilton County about their health and inspire each attendee to follow her dreams. The luncheon builds camaraderie among talented and interesting women, creates awareness of Riverview Hospital and the Women of Vision Giving Club, and raises funds for Riverview Hospital women’s services, programs, and equipment.
This year’s luncheon was held at the Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel in Carmel, Ind. Attendees were able to do a bit of shopping prior to the luncheon program at the many vendor booths in the reception area. Many outstanding raffle items were offered as well. Attendees were even able to enjoy mini manicures and chair massages!
Attendees were welcomed by Trish Oman, executive director of the Riverview Hospital Foundation. Joy Dumandan, WISH TV-8 news anchor served as the emcee for the event. Trish and Joy announced Riverview volunteer Carolyn Johns as the 2010 winner of the Women of Vision Impact Award. This award is given to a woman who best exemplifies life balance through her time, talent, and energy given through business, civic, or philanthropic leadership. Congratulations, Carolyn!
The destination for the 8th Annual Riverview Hospital Foundation 2011 Women’s Retreat was also announced. This year’s retreat will be in Montego Bay, Jamaica from September 28 to October 2. For more information, contact: Linda VanArsdall at (317) 691-1671 or [email protected]
The 2011 Women of Vision Giving Club grant recipients were then announced. Seven grants totaling $24,685 were awarded to three departments within Riverview Hospital (the Maternity Center, Women’s Boutique and Volunteer Services). These grants will support women’s services, programs and equipment. The Women of Vision Giving Club is comprised of a group of empowered women who are dedicated to making a difference. The Club’s philanthropic focus is on addressing the ever-growing healthcare needs of the women and girls who come through the doors of Riverview Hospital. Interested in joining?

Riverview Hospital Foundation major gifts officer, Susan Beckwith capped off this portion of the program and prepared the audience for the keynote speaker by singing “I am Woman” by Helen Reddy.
