Over 140 people attended the Central Community Hospital Foundation Gala Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Johnson’s Reception Hall, Elkader. Hospital CEO Brooke Kensinger gave an update on the highlights of the hospital and future improvements. The focus of the evening was to raise funds to bring 3D mammography to Central Community Hospital. Danielle Tujetsch, CCH Radiology Manager, gave a presentation on the importance of 3D mammography.
Keith Garms, Foundation President, presented a check of $6,400 to Brooke Kensinger, on behalf of the Foundation, to be used to cover the cost of four participants taking the EMT course.
The evening finished out with raffle drawings, door prizes and music by the D.R.s of Rhythm & Soul Band. Lexi Moser of Elgin, IA was the winner of the quilt raffle.
The Central Community Hospital Foundation would like to thank everyone who attended the event, purchased raffle tickets and donated dollars to make the night a success. Proceeds from the evening totaled close to $8,700, beginning the kickoff for future fundraising for 3D mammography. A special thank you to all the sponsors of the event, without your support the Foundation would not be able to continue their mission of raising charitable contributions to promote and support the health of the community though Central Community Hospital and its associated services. The next fundraising event for the Foundation will be the annual golf tournament June 22, 2018
