The Baroness Erlanger Foundation and the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger Foundation have won $5,000 each in the First Tennessee Foundation’s 150 Days of Giving online voting campaign.
To celebrate 150 years of service, First Tennessee Foundation pledged to give away $5,000 to eligible nonprofits every day for 150 days. Voting started on the bank’s 150th birthday, March 13, and will continue through August 21.
The daily winner of the contest is the nonprofit with the highest number of cumulative online votes as of midnight.
Erlanger encouraged its employees, fans and friends to vote for the Erlanger Foundations every day at www.150daysofgiving.com
“The votes of Erlanger employees and fans of Erlanger and Children’s Hospitals helped raise a total of $10,000 for our two Foundations,” said Julie Taylor, Erlanger chief development officer and president of the Erlanger Health System Foundations. “We are extremely grateful to First Tennessee Foundation for celebrating its birthday with us in such a generous way.”
Children’s Hospital at Erlanger Foundation was named the winner on June 28. Less than one week later, on July 3, the Baroness Erlanger Foundation was named as the daily winner of $5,000.
