Pictured is Kim Jefferies, Brighton’s CEO, and Cody Knowlton, Baptist Health Foundation’s President and CEO, attending Baptist Health Foundation’s grant award reception. At the award reception Kim accepted the $100,000 grant that the foundation awarded Brighton. Specifically, the grant will support Brighton’s general operating expenses, allowing Brighton the flexibility to cover expenses other funding doesn’t cover. In other words, the Baptist Health Foundation’s support allows Brighton to continue to serve children and families in our community. Awards such as this are a direct reflection of the high quality service that Brighton’s program staff provides. We are grateful for our relationship with the Baptist Health Foundation.
