Rex Gala honors a Dynamic Duo!
This year, the Rex Gala was proud to honor long time friends and Rex supporters, Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Winston.
The co-founders of the Angus Barn, Darryl’s and Pizza Inn restaurants and Winston Hotels, the Winstons contribute time, talent and treasure to numerous civic and education initiatives in the Triangle.
For over 50 years, Flo and Charlie have dedicated themselves to serving Rex Hospital. Flo was a long-time member and President of the Rex Guild and a past Trustee. Charlie served as a Foundation Board member and trusted advisor. Both have been volunteers, philanthropists and friends in many ways.
Thank you, Flo and Charlie, for your leadership, your enthusiasm for philanthropy and the example you have set for those around you. The impact of your generosity will be felt for years and years to come.
"Fun"raising with the Greatest of Ease
Carnival games provided fun and friendly competition but our biggest winner of the evening was the Rex Patient Assistance Fund. The Call for Donations, kicked off by a generous gift from the Winston Family, raised over $50,000!
The Silent Auction was wildly successful raising an additional $30,000, bringing our final fundraising tally to $258,000! Just think of the patients that will benefit from this incredible kindness and generosity.
