Cedar County Memorial Hospital will host a “Luau on the Lawn” from 5 – 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, on the west lawn of the hospital at 1401 S. Park Street in El Dorado Springs. It’s the hospital’s 10th Annual Fundraiser and everyone is invited to attend to enjoy food and music with friends, along with a silent auction and 50/50 drawing. REKOIL will join us to provide the musical entertainment. Be sure to bring your lawn chairs please. Our Occupational Therapy Department employees will be on hand with some games for the children and adults who would like to participate.
Sponsorship forms have been mailed to area businesses and anyone who would like to donate an item for the silent auction may do so by calling the Administrative office at (417) 876-3059 or by dropping the items off at the hospital. Tickets for the meal are also available by calling or stopping by the hospital Administrative office. The menu includes a pulled pork sandwich, chips, homemade baked beans, homemade potato salad, gourmet cupcake and tea or lemonade. Tickets are $12 for adults; $6 for children 4-10; and three and under are free. They will be available for purchase through Sept. 24. To-go orders are welcome.
“The proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will be put towards the purchase of a new hematology analyzer for our hospital Laboratory,” said Jana Witt, C.E.O. “Hematology analyzers are used in healthcare settings to count and characterize blood cells for disease detection and monitoring. The estimated cost of a hematology analyzer is upwards of $60,000, so we are very hopeful for a great turn-out for this year’s fundraising event!”
Cedar County Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in Cedar County and is a 25-bed, not-for-profit, Critical Access Hospital that first opened its doors in 1960. We also provide medical and wellness services through a rural health clinic, an in-home services agency, an exercise center, a satellite rehabilitation clinic and manage the county’s public health department.
The hospital’s Marketing Coordinator, Jeanne Hoagland, commented, “We have restructured the Fundraiser this year to offer more options for our sponsors, donors, and attendees. We have made it a bit more casual this year to make it more convenient for the community and our employees as well. It’s a come a go event this year if you choose, but we would love to have everyone join us for the evening to enjoy the events, eats, and music.” “The food is going to be great — I’m making my “Famous Lemonade” and I promise, no one should miss that” she said. Also, be sure to check our partial list of Silent Auction items.
The Board of Directors, Administration, and employees of Cedar County Memorial Hospital say “Thank You” in advance for your support.
