A tisket, a tasket, come look at over 160 baskets which will be up for bid Friday, May 13 at CGH Medical Center. The annual Silent Auction extravaganza is a fundraiser for the CGH Health Foundation Annual Appeal and is being sponsored by the CGH Employee Division Committee.
This event is open to the public and features a basket silent auction from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the CGH Ryberg Auditorium, Classroom 1 and Classroom 2. Bidding on the baskets will cease at 3:30 pm. "There's something for everyone, with so many themes represented this year," said Mary Spitzer and Mary Jean Derreberry, CGH Employee Division co-chairs, "whether it's for a baby shower, graduation, Father's Day or Memorial Day – we've got it."
