The Kent Hospital Foundation's Evening of Thanks was held on September 12, 2013, in a tented pavilion overlooking the hospital's new Ambulatory Surgery Center. The annual event is designed to thank our most ardent supporters and donors. This year the Evening of Thanks also served as the formal annual meeting of the Kent Hospital Foundation.

Among the 200 guests at the Evening of Thanks, some of whom are pictured below, were the newest inductees to the Kent Hospital Board of Incorporators. Kent Hospital Incorporators serve as ambassadors and advocates of our community hospital and assist us in our caregiving mission.
The Jonathan K. Farnum Business Award was also presented at the 2013 Evening of Thanks. The award is named for Jonathan Farnum, a hospital incorporator who has served Kent Hospital and Care New England in a number of capacities. The award symbolizes Mr. Farnum's exceptional leadership and dedication to Kent Hospital. We are honored to recognize Nortek Inc., as this year's recipient of the Jonathan K. Farnum Business Award and are especially grateful for the friendship and partnership of the late Ed Cooney, who was a strong advocate for the increased partnership between Nortek and Kent Hospital.
Thank you to all who attended the Evening of Thanks and a special thank you to our donors for believing in Kent Hospital and demonstrating their support through their philanthropic spirit!
