As an update to the wonderful, image-filled article about the Springville-Griffith Community Education Foundation’s Nov. 9 wine tasting and silent auction event, our final fundraising total was $42,000, which well exceeded our goal!

We gave our $25,000 contribution to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital this week, bringing them one step closer to their goal of installing a nuclear medicine camera for patients and hospital staff, in a way that will continue to “keep healthcare local.”
