MA's Indian Ranch Annual Summer Beach Party to Benefit Harrington HealthCare, 9/2


Indian Ranch is turning its annual summer beach party with Changes in Latitudes into a benefit for Harrington HealthCare at Hubbard in Webster. In March, Harrington HealthCare launched a fundraising campaign to rebuild and expand the Emergency Department at its Webster campus. Every $15 ticket purchased to the September 2ndparty at Indian Ranch will result in a $20 contribution to the campaign, thanks to a $4 million matching grant.

Changes in Latitudes is the country's premier tribute show to singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, the master of the tropical life style. Every summer Changes in Latitudes transforms Indian Ranch for one afternoon into the ultimate beach party, musically transporting the audience to that ultimate tropical paradise, Margaritaville.

“Harrington HealthCare’s Webster facility plays such an important role in our community,” said Suzette Raun, president of Indian Ranch. “We are thrilled to use our annual party at Indian Ranch as a way to raise funds for the capital campaign and we are certainly looking forward to the time when this town and the surrounding communities has a state-of-the-art modern Emergency Department.”

“We are so heartened by the generosity of Indian Ranch,” said Pamela Zouranjian Connor, Site Administrator for Harrington HealthCare at Hubbard. “By contributing to our Capital Campaign for the Emergency Department, Indian Ranch, and all who attend the Changes in Latitudes event, will help us save countless lives in the years to come.”

Harrington’s Webster Emergency Department is the focal point of healthcare in Webster, Dudley, Oxford, Douglas, Thompson and surrounding communities in South Central Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut. The Emergency Department in Webster sees more than 12,000 patient visits a year, but has not had a substantial overhaul since it was constructed in 1955.
