Gift Shop named Edie's Place in honor of volunteer
February 9, 2011
The Madison County Hospital Auxiliary would like to welcome everyone to Edie's Place, the new name of the Auxiliary gift shop.
Edie's Place was named in honor of Edie Tolley. Edie has been the gift shop's volunteer manager for the past 12 years. As gift shop manager, Edie has many responsibilities including purchasing items for the shop and pricing them, keeping the books, and promoting the shop. In fact, whenever Edie is asked to speak about the gift shop, she always ends her talk with three words, "buy, buy, buy."
"This gift shop has been Edie's place for years. We are just making it official," said Fred Kolb, MCH CEO. "It is our way of thanking her for her many years of hard work to support the hospital."
Edie's Place offers a wide variety of gifts including seasonal items, OSU gear, and specialties for new babies. This year Starbucks coffee and breakfast treats were added to the shop. All proceeds from the Edie's Place benefit Madison County Hospital and have been used to purchase new equipment and furnishings.
