Vermont Business Magazine Copley Hospital held its annual Stowe Art, Wine & Food fundraiser on Thursday, June 6 at JCOGS (Jewish Community of Greater Stowe), and the event was a success on all counts. Over 160 guests, staff, and volunteers joined to celebrate and support Copley Hospital. With sponsorships, ticket sales, live and silent auctions, and the famous wine pull, over $69,000 in gross revenue was raised.

The Stowe Art, Wine & Food fundraiser is one of three Copley events this year raising funds to purchase bedside monitors for Copley’s Emergency Department. Emergency Department (ED) providers monitor patient vital signs such as their heart rate, blood oxygen, blood pressure, and respiratory rate in real time using bedside monitors. 

“Our monitors are so important for us to determine what exactly our care is going to be for our patients,” said ED Nurse Manager, Liz Couto, RN, who spoke at the event. “By putting a patient on monitors and looking at their vital signs, we can see what interventions are working with patients, and that is the route we will go down.” 

Karen Cavender, RN, Executive Director of Perioperative & Emergency Services, who also spoke at the event, adds: “You cannot know the needs of the people coming through the doors in the ED, and our ability to provide the same level of care to every person in every treatment bay is important. The bedside monitors make it possible for us to achieve this consistency, patient to patient, day to day.”

Copley Hospital recognizes Stowe Art, Wine & Food Event Sponsor, Union Bank, and Platinum Sponsors, Maplefields, New England Air Systems, and Smugglers’ Notch Resort for helping to make this event the most successful in its three-year history.

Copley also acknowledges the individuals and local businesses who made in-kind donations of overnight stays, golf packages, bike rentals, gift baskets, original artwork and workshops, food, wine, and so much more, to the live and silent auctions and the wine pull.
