A delivery of 12 Layette bags was made on Nov 6 to both The Brody School of Medicine OB/GYN Department and Public Health Baby Love program. Another remaining 12 layette packages were delivered to Carolina Pregnancy on Wednesday. The organizations were extremely appreciative of the generosity from the members of the Service League of Greenville. The donated baby supplies and clothing will be distributed for use in our local community.
Thank you to Rita Galbraith for organizing the collection and delivery of these items!
Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina is an independent, community supported 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides a temporary “home-away-from-home” for families of children who are receiving treatment in our community’s medical facilities.
The Service League of Greenville continued its decades of support for the Children’s Miracle Network by working the phones during the 33rd annual telethon and delivering a donation for $5,000 on behalf of our members.
Over its 33 years, the CMN telethon has raised an impressive $27 million to fund everything from neo-natal medical equipment to special designed/educational books and toys. The Service League of Greenville has proudly contributed nearly $4 million of that total.
Our thanks to all who found some way to participate and/or contribute to CMN this year!
There was a tell-tale sea of blue and green smocks in the audience as Service League of Greenville President Annelle West took part in the ribbon cutting ceremony at the opening of Vidant Health’s new Cancer Center. The Cancer Center is an important part of improving wellness in Greenville and eastern North Carolina and The Service League of Greenville members are proud to be a part of its beginnings and providing ongoing support through our Hope and Caring Boutique and the Healing Gardens.
The new healing garden made the perfect backdrop for the presentation of our first payment of $300,000 to meet our $2 million pledge to Vidant Health Foundation for the new Cancer Center’s garden. Service League of Greenville President, Annelle West, along with Vice President, Ann Taylor; 2nd VP, Danette Pugh; and Past President, Mary Lee Hobbie presented the check to Phyllis DeAntonio, Administrator for Cancer Services at Vidant Medical Center.
The day was cool, but sunny as Service League of Greenville members enjoyed their first glimpse of the healing garden in Vidant Health’s new Cancer Center set to open this month.
Another great day to be a part of the Service League of Greenville!

On Saturday March 3, 2018 THE SERVICE LEAGUE OF GREENVILLE Fifty-fifth Annual Charity Ball to benefit THE LAUGHINGHOUSE HOSPITAL FUND was held at Rock Springs.
The Laughinghouse Hospital Fund was established in 1939 and is dedicated to the memory of the late Dr. Charles O’Hagan Laughinghouse. Today, through the recommendations of physicians and the assistance of social services, our fund provides prescription medicine to those in the community who do not have medical insurance and are not receiving public assistance.
Service League of Greenville members came out in force to set the stage for “A Taste of Mardi Gras” at our 55th Annual Charity Ball. Decorations are the last cog in a well oiled Charity Ball committee. It takes a lot of hands (wielding hammers, glue guns, ladders, staples, beads, feathers, lights, masks, etc) and discussions to put together a ball for over 270 people.
Of course every year is different. This year, the only thing that beat the number of member/workers were the number of beautiful masks used in the decorations…
Here is a little pre-ball taste of Mardi Gras.
Thanks to all who added their own taste of Mardi Gras magic to the Service League of Greenville’s 55th Annual Charity Ball for the benefit of The Laughinghouse Hospital Fund.
With every big event there are just some jobs that no one likes to do — Grab a mop anyone??
And then there are jobs that require tough decisions and steely determination to see them through — like the job of taste testing a Mardi Gras menu at Rock Springs for The Service League of Greenville’s 55th Annual Laughinghouse Fund Charity Ball.
Yeah, taste testing is a tough job and here is the group of ladies who managed to marshal their forces to get it done.
Doesn’t it look like they were really suffering through this “job”?
