                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, February 7, 2019

  Mr. HUDSON. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor and congratulate the 
NorthEast Foundation for receiving the 2019 Cabarrus Chamber of 
Commerce Nonprofit of the Year Award.
  Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast has provided high quality 
health care and assistance to those most in need in our community, 
including when my young son, Lane, was delivered there just a few years 
ago. The hospital's NorthEast Foundation has been the driver of so much 
development and advances to help better serve our people, including 
raising the money needed to build the Jeff Gordon Children's Center, 
the Breast Health Center, Cabarrus College of Health Sciences and 
expanding the Tucker Hospice House.
  Led by President Charlie Sastoque, the NorthEast Foundation was 
formed in 1994 to support one of our community's most valued assets, 
NorthEast Hospital. Utilizing a community-driven and donor-centric 
approach, the NorthEast Foundation has provided a platform for which 
donors can provide to specialty areas that interest or impact them the 
most. This approach allows donors to directly see the results of their 
donation, from a new piece of equipment in the neurology lab to support 
for a scholarship for aspiring nurses and doctors. These creative 
programs have led directly to Cabarrus County being at the forefront of 
many medical innovations the last 25 years.
  Our community--and my home--is a much better place to live because of 
the work of the NorthEast Foundation, and I wish them success for the 
next quarter century.
  Madam Speaker, please join me today in congratulating NorthEast 
Foundation on their achievement of the 2019 Cabarrus Chamber of 
Commerce Nonprofit of the Year Award.
