This video highlights our volunteers of the year from the Garden City Community Clinic and Volunteer Physicians Network who were honored at the 2014 Faith Hope and Love Dinner and Auction.
A Big Big Thank You to Silver Sage Porsche Club for their support of the Garden City Community Clinic! Our current total for the IMI Match with Intermountain Medical Imaging is $14,386.50! There is still time to help us reach our goal of $25,000 before January 31st.
Do you work at a medical or dental clinic in any capacity, from front desk coordinator to nurse, doctor to maintenance? If so, we could use your help meeting the generous matching donation Intermountain Medical Imaging (IMI) has pledged to the Garden City Clinic Community Clinic. For every $1 donated to the clinic by medical or dental field personal who have not donated in the past two years, IMI will match the donation up to $25,000. We only have a few more months to raise this money and are just under half way there. Please donate and note “New Donor–Medical or Dental Employee” on your donation to double your gift and help us reach our goal of $50,000.
The partners of Intermountain Medical Imaging and Gem State Radiology are continuing to encourage the healthcare community to support Genesis World Mission with an extension of a $10,000 matching gift challenge!
EVERY DOLLAR IS DOUBLED!
Help us take advantage of this generous match challenge with a gift today, and you will enables us to continue serving a vulnerable population whose needs are not yet met by the Affordable Care Act.

There is a certain element of anxiety and anticipation every year as we plan for our annual dinner: will things turn out OK. Do we have enough guests? Do we have enough items. Will the food be cold by the time it arrives at tables? I suppose it’s no different than hosting a party in your home.
But once again, at the end of this past Sunday’s Faith Hope and Love Dinner and Auction all those worries were laid to rest. We shared our stories. We had dinner together. People responded generously, as they always do.
One of the most poignant moments was when a patient stood up and great strength shared how the Clinic had helped him over the hump. Tracy Ritter and Lorrie Apel shared with emcee Mark Russell about how the work in Kenya is truly empowering an entire village.
This year we raised just over $73,000 to carry on the work of Genesis World Mission. Many thanks to all the volunteers, staff, board members, item donors and sponsors who made this possible.
Volunteers of the Year were recognized: Bill Renk, Andy Coombs, and Dr. Kaci Jensen at the Garden City Community Clinic. Digestive Health Clinic was recognized as the Volunteer Physicians Network practice of the year.
