The women of the Power of the Purse sold tickets for an amazing drawing to fund their 2018 projects.   Together we raised almost $4000 and one lucky woman - Cindy - got to choose her Skyline Vacation G2G Getaway. 

Here is what we did in 2017 - $83,000 raised! We did it! Funded everything!  GREAT JOB! 

Supporting these projects:  3D mammography, a bed mapping project in the hospitals, and the very popular Refresh and Retreat Stroke Camp allowing more survivors and caregivers to attend.   T
