As the start date for the emergency department renovation draws closer, donors are coming up with creative ways to help Grinnell Regional Medical Center raise those last few dollars to reach its fundraising goals.
"The staff in the emergency department are very passionate about the planned renovation and they wanted to do something to help us finish fundraising for the project. We're very grateful for their support," says Denise Lamphier, GRMC director of communications and development.
The staff donated a heifer to GRMC for silent auction with all the proceeds going toward the emergency department renovation. It will be divided into quarters; four winning bids will be accepted, one for each individual quarter. Go to go.rallyup.com/feea5b to place a bid and keep checking in until the auction ends at 3 p.m. today- Friday, Sept. 9.
The four winning bidders will walk away with approximately 100 to 120 pounds of high quality, locally raised beef. (Average fair market value $650-$700.)
