“The 1916 Club is the backbone of our annual fund giving program,” said Thomas J. Protack, Vice President of Development for Beebe Medical Foundation. “This is our leadership society of strong and loyal donors who exemplify the importance of investing in our community’s largest asset, Beebe, our nonprofit healthcare system. Every year we gather with our 1916 Club members to share updates on our new programs and services. This year, Mr. Fried shared with our 1916 Club members details about our plans to build throughout the county, and Mrs. Aliquo talked about the importance of philanthropy for these new initiatives and thanked the 1916 Club donors for the direct impact their gifts have made in our community.”
