2014 Billings Clinic Classic
Billings Clinic Foundation is pleased to announce plans for the 2014 Classic chaired by local businessman and civic leader Denny Menholt. Denny and a team of over 300 volunteers invite you to “A Classic Evening” with this year’s headline entertainer LeAnn Rimes.
LeAnn Rimes took the world by storm at the age of 13 with her hit single and subsequent album titled Blue. At the age of 14, LeAnn became the youngest person to win a Grammy® for Best New Artist and Best Female Country Vocal Performance. Many awards have followed, including three Academy of Country Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, and one American Music Award. Having sold over 40 million records worldwide, LeAnn has released 15 albums in her illustrious career, including her latest album titled Spitfire. In addition to her amazing vocal career, LeAnn has numerous film and television credits and authored four books, including two children’s books.
2014 Classic Cause
The Pediatric Care Team at Billings Clinic is privileged to partner with parents to nurture their precious children through their first 18 years of life offering the compassionate, expert and comprehensive care every child needs. Sadly, serious childhood disease or illness is a devastating reality for many families living in our vast region, 550 miles away from the nearest full service children’s hospital. Billings Clinic has built a team of outstanding physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, dieticians and therapists to provide the expertise required to care for children and their families close to home. Billings Clinic currently offers advanced pediatric care by trained pediatric specialists in allergy, cardiology, dermatology, diabetes, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, neonatology, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, pulmonology and psychiatry – providing the most comprehensive pediatric specialty care in our state.
In support of Billings Clinic’s ongoing commitment to excellence in caring for children, funds from the 2014 Classic will be dedicated to the construction of an inpatient unit specifically designed to care for children, from infants to teens, hospitalized at Billings Clinic. Patient rooms will create a warm and comforting safe haven for children with supportive space for family members who are essential to their healing. This state-of-the-art unit will create even greater possibilities to expand care allowing children and families to receive the care they need – close to home.
The Classic is the premier fundraising event for Billings Clinic, raising millions of dollars over the years in support of advancing health care excellence at Billings Clinic.
