In observance of Colon Cancer Awareness month in March, the Endoscopy Center at Robinwood raffled off a gift basket to raise funds to donate to a charity of the doctors of the Endoscopy Center's choice.

The "Spring Into Action" basket was filled with hundreds of dollars worth of gifts, healthy snacks, gift cards and the Endoscopy Center's cookbook, "Great Intentions" (available for purchase at ECR, Suite 248 for $20 cash or check).

Proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will be donated to nonprofit gastrointestinal disorders research and treatment organizations.

The gift basket was awarded to Fran Cordell, whose name was drawn from all those who purchased chances, by ECR's medical director, Dr. Nelson Ferreira. A total of $566.05 was raised by the raffle. The proceeds were donated to the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (http://www.screen4coloncancer.org) with research indicated.

The Endoscopy Center at Robinwood wishes to thank everyone who supported the raffle.
