In commemoration of the CGH Health Foundation’s 25th anniversary, CGH employees are hosting, “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” a Craft/Bake sale on Wednesday, September 19 from 6:00am to 6:00pm at CGH Medical Center. The festivities will be held in the CGH Ryberg Auditorium, Classrooms 1 and 2. There is no charge to attend. Proceeds from the sale go to twelve health initiatives sponsored by the Foundation, including the new Dog Therapy Program called Love on a Leash.”
In addition to the Craft/Bake Sale, the very popular Penny Raffle and the Big Raffle are two more fun features of the event. Other delights include: homemade truffles, caramels, breads, jams and anything else you can imagine to tempt your taste buds will be beautifully displayed for your enjoyment. Seasonal crafts will include Halloween and Christmas decorations, painted wine bottles, bird feeders, quilts, woolen scarves, to name a few.
In keeping with the New York theme, shoppers can stroll through “shops” called Epiphanies, Magical Square Garden, Grand Central Confection, and Holiday in Times Square.
Organizers hope to raise at least $5,000 to go towards the $360,000 Annual Appeal goal. If you'’d like to make a donation of any kind, contact Dolly at 815/626-7657; Perri at 815/225-7202 or Joan Hermes, 815/625-0400, ext. 5672.
