Exciting grab bag items worth up to $25 in value will be offered as well as silent auction items such as Twins tickets, auto care, jewelry, crystal, artwork and more. Live auction items include tickets to the Vikings-Packers game, Minnesota Wild, and other professional sports events, plus other special items. Attendees can again purchase a key for a chance to win a cruise vacation trip to the Caribbean, or a $1000 travel voucher. The Health Care Advocate award will also be presented during the evening to a community volunteer who has given generously of time and talents.
The Foundation is a non-profit organization supported by individual contributions and fundraising events. Foundation funds support the work of the Foundation and St. Croix Regional Medical Center in many ways, including:
• Awarding scholarships to encourage young students and adults to pursue careers in health care
• Purchasing vital technology that improves the care we are able to give patients
• Assisting with physical improvements to the facility
• Providing general information to address health care issues
“The Foundation has always been committed to supporting the health of our communities and our patients,” said Foundation President, Elvira Schmidt. “In the last year, the Foundation donated generously to SCRMC for the purchase of patient care equipment.”
