Roof Raises Record Breaking Funds Healthcare

Last month’s Up on the Roof fundraiser for East Jefferson General Hospital hosted by 1st Lake Properties was a smashing success. Not only did all who attended enjoy an amazing, fun-filled night, but $150,000 was raised to fund important healthcare programs.

With the help of 59 sponsors, 150 volunteers and over 1,300 attendees, the hospital’s signature event went off without a hitch, and raised the record-breaking funds to support INSPIRE, The Foundation at East Jefferson General Hospital’s competitive grants program to fund innovative medical projects including specialized patient care, advanced technology and capital expansion.

While they were donating to a very worthy cause, attendees were able to sample over 80 beers and delicious food from 33 local restaurants while enjoying live music entertainment provided by The Boogie Men and B-97.1 FM emcees.

“We are so thankful to our sponsors, volunteers and the community support we received,” said Stacey Shane Schott, event chair and Senior Vice President of 1st Lake Properties. “We are humbled by the number of people who participate in this event; it shows the community’s support for EJGH.”

Following Up on the Roof, The Foundation gave the hospital a check for $1 million, its second installment for the expansion of the EJGH Cancer Center, part of a campaign to expand the Oncology Infusion Center, which is expected to open Spring 2014.

1st Lake Properties is honored to have hosted such a wonderful event and is looking forward to next year. See you at Up on the Roof in 2014!
