William (Bill) H. Bannerman and Jeremiah (Jerry) Tarr were honored recently at the New England Association of Healthcare Philanthropy (NEAHP) with the Distinguished Service to Philanthropy Award. The NEAHP Award was founded in 1978 to recognize extraordinary philanthropists and volunteers in philanthropy who have made significant contributions to a New England health care organization. Over 300 health care organizations in New England are members of NEAHP.

Bannerman and Tarr were co-chairs of Rutland Regional Medical Center's recent capital campaign initiative that raised funds for a new linear accelerator for the Foley Cancer Center. The campaign raised $1.5 million dollars surpassing the established goal of $1.25 million.

Bannerman and Tarr were honored at the New England Association of Healthcare Philanthropy's annual conference in Meredith, NH. Over 180 fundraising professionals paid tribute to Bannerman and Tarr's leadership, volunteerism and dedication to Rutland Regional Medical Center and other organizations in the community.
