– In 1992, the Sierra View Foundation was established as a non-profit
organization to invest in the future by promoting community philanthropy,
building lasting relationships and promoting a positive image of Sierra

View Foundation Board of Directors oversees the operations of the Sierra
View Foundation which is a 12-member board of volunteers that includes
community leaders and activists who are dedicated to a healthy future
for the hospital and the people it serves.
On Thursday, Dennis Townsend was re-installed as Foundation Chair after
serving in 2016. Debbie Landers, who has been a Foundation Board member
for 11 years, was also re-installed after a year of service as Vice Chair.
After nine years of membership, Bill McKinley was again honored as Treasurer
after serving in 2016. Janice Castle, a Foundation Board member of nine
years, was installed as Secretary for 2017.
The Foundation will host two major fundraising events in 2017, the first
being the Sierra View Golf Classic on April 21 and the second being the 11th Annual Sierra View Foundation Gala on September 16. The Sierra View Foundation
Board will continue to raise funds and awareness for Sierra View Medical
Center, encourage donors to leave a lasting legacy, and expand and strengthen
healthcare services throughout 2017.
