    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Real life is often our best inspiration. So says Lisa Bounds, Executive Council member for the 2013 Jubilee of Trees. “My family has been touched by the hospital’s most recent causes—among them NICU, Life Flight and breast cancer. Because of this, I’ve arrived at a deeper understanding and gratitude—and a more profound desire to serve.”

    The Foundation of Dixie Regional Medical Center is equally grateful for the dedication of its volunteers and proudly announces the 2013 leadership of the annual Jubilee of Trees fundraising event. The leadership—collectively known as the Jubilee of Trees Executive Council—places its heart, soul and elbow grease into heading the five-day event to generate philanthropy in support of healthcare advancements at Dixie Regional Medical Center. The Jubilee is the largest showcase of designer trees between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, and one of the southwestern Utah’s most beloved holiday venues.

    Providing guidance and direction to literally hundreds of fellow volunteers over eight months of the year, the Executive Council ensures both the event and the cause supported are meaningful to everyone who attends. This year, four directors comprise the leadership cadre—Lisa Bounds, overseeing Facility Décor; Karen Heath, heading Information, Admissions & Volunteers; Rosalie Scholes, as Booth Director; and Rachel Terry, Trees & Wreaths Director. Foundation and Jubilee Development Officer Tomie Fuller assists and guides the Council, overseeing all facets of planning, organizing and presenting the complex, multi-dimensional event.

    In cooperation with community partners and thousands of volunteers, The Jubilee has raised millions of dollars in support of healthcare advancements since its inception. Key initiatives have included the Jubilee Home II charitable lodging facility, newborn intensive care, maternal fetal medicine, rehabilitation and cancer services, and over

    $500,000 to help build and equip Dixie Regional’s new facility on River Road. The Jubilee contributed significantly to the $2.3 million in philanthropic dollars raised to bring Life Flight rotary wing air ambulance service to southern Utah, and in 2010, raised over

    $750,000 for breast cancer care and prevention. In 2011, funds raised by the annual event supported much-needed expansion of the hospital’s newborn intensive care, and in 2012, supported the hospital’s multi-year initiative to elevate trauma care and advance neurosciences and neurosurgery.
