With a new twist, the annual Taste of Carroll presented by M&T Bank invites participants to partake in a one-year culinary road trip as they taste and explore all that our community has to offer.
Audrey and Harold Trumpower’s love for Carroll County lives on through their family foundation.
Despite creating one of the largest family foundations in Carroll County, Harold Glen and Audrey G. Benson Trumpower were never ones to flaunt their wealth.
Verdence Capital Advisors, an independent investment advisory firm, recently donated $15,000 to support Carroll Hospice and Carroll Hospital.
Verdence Capital Advisors leaders Leo Kelly III, chief executive officer, and Thomas New, chief operating officer, recently presented the check to Ellen Finnerty Myers, chief development officer and vice president of corporate development at Carroll Hospital.
The firm’s donation will go toward supporting Taste of Carroll, Carroll Hospice’s signature fundraising event held in April to benefit hospice services. In addition, the funds will benefit the hospital’s Carroll Golf Classic, a popular golfing event held each September to raise funds for the hospital’s programs and services.
Verdence Capital Advisors has been a strong supporter of the hospital for many years. With this donation, the company’s cumulative support of Carroll Hospital and Carroll Hospice is nearly $100,000.
“We are proud to support Carroll Hospital and the outstanding work they do. Their uncompromising commitment to superior care for people in Carroll County and the surrounding communities is truly inspiring,” said New.
“We are very thankful to Verdence Capital Advisors for their generous support of our hospital and hospice services. It is because of partners like them that we are able to continue to provide high quality care for our community,” said Myers.
