Peconic Bay Medical Center’s Auxiliary presented a $300,000 check to PBMC president and CEO Andrew Mitchell Friday at the Auxiliary’s annual awards luncheon at Giorgio’s in Baiting Hollow.

The money was raised through a variety of events and activities including the annual Candlelight Ball and the medical center’s gift shop.

Auxiliary volunteers are a key part of the PBMC team, giving more than 22,000 hours annually of service to a variety of areas, including greeting patients and visitors at the front desk and in the Emergency Care Center, assisting on the patient care units and performing clerical work.

Anyone interested in becoming a hospital volunteer can call Lynne LaGrua, Director of Volunteer Services, at 631-548-6021.
