The birth of a baby is a time of great joy and celebration. The Lenoir Memorial Foundation is pleased to offer a very special way for parents, grandparents and friends to commemorate this wonderful event. The Cradle Crowd is a unique tribute that, unlike flowers or clothing, will last a lifetime.
With a minimum gift of $125, you will receive two beautiful satin-silver medallions etched with the actual footprint, name and date of birth of your special baby. One medallion can be placed on the Cradle Crowd wall located in the Family Birth Center reception area. You can select the spot and take pictures of the baby and family members present as the medallion is being attached. The duplicate medallion comes with a Lucite easel for a free-standing display; it can be given to the parents, grandparents or other interested party.
Proceeds from the Cradle Crowd are used to sustain and enhance newborn services and equipment at Lenoir Memorial Hospital. Literally, a gift of life, your commemoration results in top quality care for a tiny newborn, life-saving technology and skilled staffing for the Family Birth Center. This gift helps to fund educational programs for new “moms” including classes on newborn care, breast feeding and infant immunization. A brochure with information about the Cradle Crowd including the enrollment form can be obtained at the nurses’ station within the Family Birth Center. Additional information is available by contacting the Foundation office at 252-522-7262.
Checks should be made payable to the Lenoir Memorial Foundation and mailed to 100 Airport Road, Kinston, NC 28501.
Holiday Benefit Reception
To kickoff the holidays, the Lenoir Memorial Foundation holds an annual Holiday Benefit Reception on the first Thursday evening following Thanksgiving. The event is held at The Bentley, a neo-classical revival home, now beautifully restored as a bed and breakfast located in the heart of downtown Kinston.
Invitations are extended to all individuals who have supported the Foundation’s projects and services throughout the year. Guests enjoy an evening of fine food while mingling with friends amidst the beautifully decorated rooms. Holiday ambiance abounds with musical entertainment playing on the mezzanine atop the grand center staircase.

Annual Benefit Golf Tournament
The Lenoir Memorial Foundation holds an annual Superball Golf Tournament each May at the Kinston Country Club. Proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will be used exclusively for Stroke Prevention and Awareness. The 2015 tournament date is May 7th.
Since its inception in 1999, this event has been known as “the tournament to play in” for friends of the Hospital, corporate vendors, and Kinston area golfers. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. A buffet lunch is served in the Club’s dining room prior to the 12 noon shotgun start.
The chance to win a premium golf club on one of five holes serves as one of the hallmarks of the tournament. A premium club goes to winners of closest to the pin on four par 3’s, and the longest and most accurate drives. The putt-off contest winner has a chance to take home a $500 cash prize. Plus, we have the best volunteers!

The Lenoir Memorial Hospital Foundation was founded in 1986 as a non-profit, independent and tax-exempt charitable corporation. The primary goal of the Foundation is to receive, administer and disperse contributions for the benefit of Lenoir Memorial Hospital and the people it serves.
The Lenoir Memorial Foundation provides funding to Lenoir Memorial Hospital for the purposes of
• purchasing equipment
• upgrading medical technology for physicians and staff
• enhancing patient care
• supporting community health initiatives
• building an endowment
A capital campaign in 2006 supported Lenoir Memorial Hospital’s celebration of “100 years of hospital care”. The Foundation looks forward to playing a major role in generating funding for future capital construction projects.
An eighteen member Board of Directors governs the operations of the Foundation through quarterly meetings. Annual and quarterly audits of the Foundation’s financial records are prepared by independent accounting firms.
All gifts to the Foundation are charitable contributions and are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Private gifts and grants are the major sources of funding for our Foundation. In addition to the personal satisfaction of contributing, donors receive the Foundation’s annual Donor Report and invitations to special events sponsored by the Foundation and by Lenoir Memorial Hospital. To recognize the philanthropy of major contributors, a donor board located in the hospital lobby lists individuals and businesses contributing at identified levels annually.
Questions about the Lenoir Memorial Foundation can be answered by contacting Dirk Griffith, Executive Director, at 252-522-7262 or by email at email@example.com
