Waynesboro Hospital Auxiliary raffles to benefit projects

February 07, 2006|by JENNIFER FITCH

Volunteers with the Waynesboro (Pa.) Hospital Auxiliary are kicking off a monthlong raffle last week.

One winner is selected each day for prizes including a baby quilt, gift certificates and a Longaberger basket.

Proceeds will benefit auxiliary projects like infant screenings. The auxiliary provides funding for neonatal tests beyond those required by the state.

Twice a year, the hospital administrator presents the auxiliary with a "wish list" of requests from hospital staff. The auxiliary, formed in the 1920s, fills those wishes with fundraisers like the raffle, antiques show and greens sale.

In the past, the auxiliary has purchased blanket warmers used in diagnostic services, a digital camera for pathology, children's coloring books for waiting rooms and jaundice meters for infants. The auxiliary also offers scholarships to nursing students.

Tickets for February's raffle cost $1 each or six for $5.

"The sooner you buy them, the more chances you have," said Elaine Sneeringer, auxiliary president.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the hospital volunteer office at 717-765-4000, ext. 5205, or by visiting the gift shop.
