WE HAVE FUN HELPING KIDS BE KIDS
OUR SHRINE CLUB MEMBERS DEDICATE OURSELVES TO CHILDREN IN NEED OF SURGICAL AND REHABILITATIVE CARE AT
SHRINERS HOSPITALS FOR CHILDREN - GREENVILLE
Nestled in the mountains just south of Asheville, North Carolina, is the town of Hendersonville, home of the Hendersonville Shrine Club. With a membership of about 300 Nobles, our club consistently produces more money for the Shriners Hospitals for Children than any other club in our area.
How do we do that? Very simple. We work hard and have the support of an appreciative population, many of whom have been personally touched by having a family member or friend who has been successfully treated at one of our Shriners Hospitals.
Another reason for the overall success of the Shriners is that people know the money we raise will actually go to the hospitals. To substantiate that claim, the December 2002 issue of Money Magazine in their article, “Make Your Donations Count,” rated the Shriners Hospitals for Children as one of the most efficient health charity in the United States.
Of the money we collect on behalf of these hospitals, over 94 % goes directly to the hospitals. The excellent reputation that Shriners Hospitals is achieving throughout America can – and does – have a positive impact on donations, patient referrals and public awareness.
