Craft fair to support digital mammography purchase for PRMC

Released: December 2, 2010

A digital mammography machine for Pratt Regional Medical Center may become a reality sooner than expected, thanks to various organizations that have taken on this project in their philanthropic efforts. This weekend, the three chapters of Epsilon Sigma Alpha will be contributing to this cause.

Gamma Beta ESA will host its annual craft show at the Municipal Building with more than 60 crafters offering their wares. Always a philanthropic event, a portion of their proceeds will help fund the local needs as well as St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Gamma Kappa ESA and Epsilon Pi ESA will join Gamma Beta in a holiday cookie sale in the Commissioners Room of the Municipal Building. A variety of homemade specialty cookies will be available for sale by the cookie or by the dozen, and all proceeds from this will go to the digital mammography fund set up through the Pratt Health Foundation.

The doors of the Municipal Building will open for business Saturday, Dec. 4 at 9 a.m. Cookie sales will continue until the cookies are gone or 3 p.m. when the craft fair ends.

Donations can also be made toward a pink bicycle donated by Janet Huitt. It is on display this week at The Peoples Bank and in the cookie room the day of the craft fair. With a set donation, your name will be put into the drawing for the bike.

The Pratt High School cheerleaders kicked off the campaign, raising more than $3500 in T-shirt sales for digital mammography equipment to assist the PRMC radiology department, which also had a T-shirt sale and bake sale. Their combined efforts brought the fund to around $7000 of the needed $300,000 to purchase the equipment.

The Pratt Health Foundation Festival of Lights will also support this endeavor, as will the Foundation’s spring fundraiser, which usually brings in approximately $50,000.

Early response to the Festival of Lights has netted more than $5,000, according to DeWayne Bryan, executive director of the Foundation. Donations may be sent to the Pratt Health Foundation at 203 S. Main.

The hope is that by the end of the spring fund drive, the hospital will have enough donated funds to go ahead with the purchase, Bryan said.
