Giving thanks

In this month of Thanksgiving the SBAMH Auxiliary would like to thank all those who have supported our fund raisers over the past two years.  The Auxiliary held the first biennial Inspirations and Indulgences event in April of 2017 and are beginning preparations for the 2nd event to be held on April 27, 2019.  The Auxiliary sponsors various vendor sales in the SBAMH lobby and the HEC building throughout the year.  Volunteers staff the hospital gift shop which earns money for donations as well.

So where did the money go?  
Following is a list of items with funds earned from our 2017 Inspirations and Indulgences event:
$910.18 for 2 I pads and Covers for Biopsy Room in the Cancer Center
$2102.98 for 2 TV’s for the Biopsy Room in the Cancer Center
$135.54 for camera for laptop for Biopsy Procedures in the Cancer Center
$900.41 for Defibrillator for the Cancer Center
$1028 for Blood Glucose Monitor System (Meter, Docking Station, Docking/Meter Cable)

The following items have been purchased with Auxiliary funds.  Some have just recently been approved.
$7122 for Kwikboost Charging Stations (9 stations throughout the hospital)
$2544 for 300 Halo Innovations Cotton Sleep Sacks for Family Birth Center (given to all babies born at SBAMH)
$100,000 for SBA Immediate Care Clinic
$21,134 for Aria Software Upgrade to the Servers in the Cancer Center
$5000  to the Matthew J. Cross Fund for Care for Cancer Patients
Total for 2018:  $140.877.11

And those Pink Ladies are not finished yet.  They have just approved the purchase of a new shuttle (about $9,400) to provide free rides around the SBAMH campus for patients.  We would like to thank all our supporters at the hospital, in El Dorado, and in the surrounding communities for enabling us to make these donations in 2018.
