TRMC Foundation’s Hearts & Diamonds Gala to honor Joyce Mims

The Tift Regional Medical Center (TRMC) Foundation’s 19th annual Hearts & Diamonds Gala will honor the memory of longstanding hospital board member Joyce Mims. With a tropical paradise theme, this year’s black-tie optional event will be held on Saturday, March 16, 6:30 p.m. – 11:00 p.m., at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center. All proceeds benefit the TRMC Foundation.

“This special night will serve as a tribute to Ms. Joyce, who recently passed away,” said Mandy Brooks, TRMC Foundation Executive Director/CEO. “A retired educator, community advocate, and businesswoman, Ms. Joyce had been an active board member of our healthcare system since 2003. She served in the role of board secretary for many years. Because of her leadership, community activism and dedication to our network of care, Ms. Joyce was awarded the John B. Prince Distinguished Service Award by TRMC in 2014. Her passing leaves a void in the Tifton community, but her memory and impact will undoubtedly live.”

Brooks said the Hearts & Diamonds Gala will feature live music from The Mighty Kicks, a silent auction, cocktails, a seated dinner and a diamond giveaway. Tickets are $125.00 per person and can be considered a tax-deductible contribution to the TRMC Foundation.

“Funds generated by the gala will support the Foundation’s Community Fund, which includes the donation of live-saving chest compression machines, automatic defibrillators, and 12-lead EKG equipment to local first responders,” said Brooks.

Tickets for the Hearts & Diamonds Gala can be purchased by calling 229-391-3310.
“We encourage the community to come out and support this fundraising event,” said Brooks. “It is a great night of fun, all for a great cause.”
