Tea party raises money

April 23, 2007

Thomasville-- The annual auxiliary tea fundraiser will be held at the recently completed, refurbished Grimsley home in Thomasville this Wednesday from.

The tea party raises money for special projects at the hospital.  Last year's fundraiser brought in $27,000. The auxiliary is hoping for at least that much to fund their projects for this year.

"This year we have the money designated to pay for a special system of wheelchairs called a stacksy system, its just a specialized wheel chair that we can use at the front door to carry people to the areas they need to go to," says Jean Morgan, president of the Archbold Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.

The money from last year's fundraiser bought a courtesy cart to tote patients and visitors from the parking lot to the hospital front door.

No tickets are needed to attend the tea- but donations are welcome.
