Annual Gala Approaching: Honors Retired Deputy Christopher Griffith
GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (March 31, 2014)
Retired Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Deputy
Christopher Griffith will be the recipient of Carson Valley Medical Center Foundation’s
Healthcare Legacy Award at the Foundation’s fifth annual Gala on May 10, 2014.
“We realize that the health of a community goes far beyond the walls of the hospital. Chris
Griffith’s work with the DARE and GREAT programs have fostered a healthy community by
helping the youth in our area focus on making smart and healthy lifestyle choices. He has
touched the lives of so many in our community and this is our small token of appreciation for his
work over the years” says Shannon Albert, Director of Development and Outreach for Carson
Valley Medical Center.
The event, “A Grand Affair – 1920’s SpeakEasy” is the major annual fundraiser for the hospital
foundation and will help Carson Valley Medical Center purchase an updated cardiac and
respiratory monitoring system to be used throughout the hospital. This system will enable a
quicker response time for healthcare professionals, and better coordination of care between
services during a patient’s stay at the hospital or in the Emergency Room.
