New Port Richey, FL (April 21, 2009) - The Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point Volunteer Association announced their Volunteer of the Year Award winners at their Annual Awards & Recognition Banquet that was held at the Spartan Manor on Sunday, April 19. The winners were Trudy Domman and Donald Andriuzzo.
Trudy Domman received multiple nominations for Volunteer of the Year. She has been a volunteer since 1988 and has 8,700 hours. Trudy has a quick smile and a very caring manner. She is one of those volunteers who is always there to help whether it is to train a new volunteer or bring cake to her group. Whenever there is a special project she is one of the first to help out. As one of her co-workers said she is truly a dedicated person and a jewel to work with. Trudy volunteers regularly in the Business Office and as a Courier. Recently she accepted an additional position as a Courier Dispatcher. Her dedication to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, our patients, visitors, staff and volunteers is a reason she received the 2008 Female Volunteer of the Year award.
Don Andriuzzo started volunteering in 1994 and has over 19,000 hours. As Chairperson of the Mail Couriers he has demonstrated that unique ability to manage and lead individuals regardless of the situation. Don has formed a dedicated team that not only enjoys working with him but enjoys helping each other to make sure the job gets done. He also has the ability to work with hospital staff, fellow volunteers and visitors needing assistance. I have never heard an unkind word come out of him and his positive attitude, his dedication to the hospital and to the volunteer association makes Don Andriuzzo the perfect person to be the 2008 Male Volunteer of the Year.
