The Rutherford SocietyThe Rutherford Society is the group of people that love Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital the most. The Society thanks all donors of $1,000 or more per year, with two tickets to the Rutherford Society Gala, scheduled in January of each year. Held at The Embassy Suites, this black tie event recognizes the supporters of the Foundation and the Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital. A nationally known keynote speaker is featured each year and past participants include Archie Manning, Dr. Ben Carson, Governor Mike Huckabee, Robyn Roberts, Capt. Sully Sullenberger, David Price, Lou Holtz, Kirk Herbstreit and SEAL TEAM SIX Leader Robert J. O'Neill.
Power of PinkThe Power of Pink fundraising initiative began 12 years ago in an effort to provide awareness, education and diagnostic breast services for those who have not been screened for breast cancer in Rutherford County. Founded by Patty Marschel, and assisted by Rita Ash, Leslie Akins, Caroline Lampley and Dave Davis, Jr. over the years, the outpouring of love and financial support has steadily increased, enabling efforts to reach thousands of local women who are not able to provide these services for themselves. The six year old Wine Around the Square is a September community event, sponsored by the Foundation, featuring wine tastings around the historic Square in downtown Murfreesboro.
