On Friday, I blogged about the start of the holidays and getting into the holiday spirit. The ability to enhance that spirit came on Friday evening with the Health System's holiday party for board members, physicians and upper-end donors to our Foundation. What a party! The Food Service staff once again outdid themselves as has been the case year after year. The party gets better each year and attendance grows year after year. All of the food is prepared on site by an extremely talented group of employees. I love when I am asked the question, "Who does the catering for this wonderful party? I have to get their name." Guests can't believe that such an event can be delivered by the "kitchen staff." Let me tell you, it is the holiday party of the season and one that everyone wants to be invited to. An invite is easy, just contribute at the $10,000 level or higher, become a physician or be invited to serve in some governance related capacity at WMHS. Although I thanked our Dietary staff throughout the evening and after the event was over, I can't recognize them enough for the outstanding effort in delivering the party of the holiday season. Great job, everyone!
