CRMC Auxiliary to host 'Sweet Affair' cookie sale

Monday, November 29, 2010

A few members of the CRMC Quilters, left to right, Emma Lou Phelan, Virginia Whittenburg, Mary Murphy and Donna Tinker, stand in front of the beautiful handmade quilt on display in the Cherokee Regional Medical Center cafeteria lobby. The Quilters have been selling raffle chances for the quilt throughout the year. $1 chances for this quilt will be available for the last time during the CRMC Auxiliary "Sweet Affair" holiday cookie sale on Wednesday morning, Dec. 8. The quilt drawing will take place later that day. Throughout the years, the CRMC Quilters have supported many wonderful projects at the hospital with the proceeds of their quilting. Most recently, the group generously donated $16,000 to purchase flat screen TVs for each of the patient rooms at CRMC. Photo contributed
Each year, Cherokee Regional Medical Center Auxiliary puts on the "Sweet Affair" holiday cookie sale as one of its annual fundraisers.

The Sweet Affair is a great opportunity to purchase goodie trays for the holidays with each tray containing a wide assortment of cookies, candies and treats. The cost is $12 for a tray of five-dozen and $6 for two and a half dozen.

The "Sweet Affair" is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. in the Cherokee Regional Medical Center lobby by the cafeteria. (Please note the change of the sale day to a Wednesday this year.) People are encouraged to reserve a limited number of trays prior to the event by calling Peggy Jaminet at (712) 225-4094.

The CRMC Auxiliary uses the money raised from the "Sweet Affair" to provide little extras to patients and their families at Cherokee Regional Medical Center. Some of the current projects include providing cable TV service to patient rooms, educational books to first time mothers at CRMC, and awarding two $400 scholarships to qualifying local area high school seniors each spring. Funding these projects is quite an undertaking so your support of the CRMC Auxiliary is greatly appreciated.

In addition, the CRMC Auxiliary welcomes new members. If you are interested in joining the Auxiliary or would like to learn more about the organization, please feel to contact Marilyn Brown at (712) 225-4758.
