I am honored to serve as president of the University Transplant Guild as we conclude this historic year marking 10 years of the University Transplant Guild helping the transplant patients in Mississippi.
The 2020 Southern Social event will consist of a sporting clay shoot in the afternoon, a southern craft and then an evening social immediately following at the newly constructed clubhouse at Providence Hill Farm. The casual evening celebration will include various shoot awards, a silent auction and fabulous food and drink.
We have added a “Craft It Southern” class for non-shooters who would like to attend during the shoot and stay for the evening celebration. This exciting new addition will have food and drink and every one of all skill levels will go home with their own personal craft! Come take some crafting instruction in the beautiful setting of Providence Hill Farm.
We are ecstatic with the response and support from so many of you in the past few years for this event. We can’t wait to build on our successes and celebrate a new decade of making Mississippi a healthier place through transplantation. The UMMC transplant program continues to grow and do even more exciting things to improve the lives of Mississippians. The Guild continues to provide comfort items to the nearly 200 patients when they are admitted, such as a cozy robe to keep and tablets to borrow for emailing or movie watching. We also continue to provide need based emergency financial assistance to transplant patients to help aid them in paying for rent, prescriptions, gas money or whatever they may need.
The Guild is exploring other areas to identify the most need and will continue to strive to meet those needs. We ask that you review the enclosed information and consider making a contribution to help make this a reality for the state’s only transplant program. Your generosity makes a huge impact on our efforts to continue to support a rapidly expanding transplant community. Your support is what allows the guild to be a part of UMMC’s drive to achieve a healthier Mississippi.
We look forward to a fun event with you!Olivia Christine Milner, PresidentUniversity Transplant Guild
