Raising Funds & Goodwill
For over 125 years, the Women's Association has provided funding and seed money
for projects at Morristown Medical Center to help advance the quality of healthcare
for our community. In addition to the funds that are brought in to support advancements at Morristown Medical Center, WAMMC businesses and events
provide benefits to patients, visitors and staff, and to the community as a whole.
Our fundraising events and revenue-generating enterprises are highlighted below.
Mansion in May is the signature fundraising event for WAMMC and one of the most successful designer show houses in the nation. Our community rallies around this event with much excitement and anticipation. Mansion in May 2017 raised more than $1.5 million for causes at MMC.
Event Fundraisers are run by Twigs and by the larger WAMMC membership. Over the last several years we have hosted events such as The Honey Brunch Luncheon, the Garden Tour and the Farm to Table Dinner, all of which raised money for MMC causes. Watch our calendar for future WAMMC events
The Bargain Box is a designer thrift boutique staffed by WAMMC volunteers. The deeply discounted, high-quality shopping experience is a welcome service in our community. A staple of WAMMC's fundraising businesses, The Bargain Box provides a steady stream of revenue to benefit the Medical Center.
Cafés at MMC include STARBUCKS and APPLE A DAY CAFÉS which are situated throughout the Medical Center. They offer patients, visitors and staff sustenance and a familiar place to take a break. A portion of the proceeds from the cafés is donated to WAMMC in support of the Medical Center.
Gift Shops at MMC are situated throughout the Medical Center and are mainly staffed by WAMMC volunteers. They offer a convenient shopping experience for hospital visitors and staff and often a cheerful respite.
