Comedy comes to aid Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation

Comedy Comes to Aid Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation

Last Friday, a substantial crowd attended the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation Seed Circle Family Comedy Night to raise money for the RMH Pediatric Office Building Fund. The evening began with the presentation of the first Rush County Youth Volunteer of the Year Award to David Wood. David is the son of Jeremy Wood and is a recent RCHS graduate. His philanthropy includes church volunteering, numerous school volunteer projects with SADD and PHAF, and raising money for Riley Children’s Hospital. He was presented with a plaque and $300 from Rush Memorial Hospital. David will be attending college this fall majoring in Respiratory Therapy/Nursing.

The evening’s first comedian, Scott Gregory, was enthusiastically introduced by emcee Brian Sheehan. Scott kept everyone in stitches with his stand-up, quick wit. His description of a “kitty” swiffer had the audience screaming. He concluded his act with an amazing puppet skit and song.

After a short intermission, Sheehan took his turn at comedy and shared a few jokes of his own.

Craig Tornquist was the evening’s final act and immediately got the crowd participating with his impersonations and “Big Hair Queen” contest. Tornquist ended the evening with a do-wop song rendition involving Sheehan and RMH President and CEO Brad Smith that brought the house down.

“This was a great fundraiser and entertaining evening loaded with lots of laughs and smiles. I want to thank everyone who attended, the comedians, Brian Sheehan, the RMH Foundation Seed Circle, and our corporate sponsors Harcourt Industries, Malson Law Office and Fraley & Schilling Trucking,” stated Faith Mock, RMH Foundation Director.

The RMH Foundation is presently in a campaign to raise $670,000 for the new building. If you would like to contribute to the Pediatric Office Building Fund, you may mail your contribution to: RMH Foundation, 1300 North Main Street, P.O. Box 215, Rushville, IN 46173, donate online at www.rushmemorial.com, or stop by the RMH Foundation Office located on the first floor of Rush Memorial Hospital.
