Elegance and charity: Holiday Delights Fundraiser set for Friday, Nov. 21
MOSCOW—Kick off the holiday season in elegant fashion at the 48th Annual Holidays Delights, hosted by the Gritman Medical Center Auxiliary.
Now in its 48th year, Holiday Delights invites Gritman supporters to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and wine tasting while bidding on an array of silent auction items from many generous individuals and businesses. New this year, Holiday Delights will feature a live auction with an assortment of enticing packages, including a wine tour, delivery of a home-made cake of the month and more.
“The Gritman Medical Center Auxiliary is proud to continue the long-standing tradition of Holiday Delights,” says Kim Mues, Gritman Auxiliary member and Holiday Delights chair. “We are excited to add a few new twists to this year's event.”
Holiday Delights is on Friday, November 21 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Best Western Plus University, 1516 West Pullman Road in Moscow.
Tickets are $30 and available at Bertie’s Gift Shoppe inside Gritman Medical Center, Book People of Moscow, Umpqua Bank—both Moscow locations—or at the door. Must be 21 years of age or older to attend.
Holiday Delights raises money to support the needs of Gritman Medical Center including scholarships and equipment. This year, a portion of the proceeds will go toward the purchase of an ultrasound machine for the Gritman Radiology Department. This new machine will improve image quality and resolution and costs approximately $130,000.
“The purchase of the new ultrasound machine will allow us to move one machine to the Women’s Imaging Center. A machine at the Women’s Imaging Center translates to shorter wait times for patients and an enhanced overall patient experience for the best possible care,” said Scott Nelson, Gritman Director of Radiology.
