The annual HRRMC Foundation Jewel Ball scheduled for September has transitioned to a donation-based virtual campaign in the form of a live radio auction on September 17th.
All proceeds will go towards COVID equipment for the hospital and hospital clinics.
“An in-person event was not possible this year, yet as we surveyed our sponsors and donors we found that many people in our communities were still interested in supporting the HRRMC Foundation,” explained Lezlie Burkley, HRRMC Foundation Director. “We believe that despite so many changes in our everyday lives, there is still so much to celebrate. Chaffee County has fared well with the pandemic, better than anticipated. We have a strong community and stable healthcare system. Our community is fortunate.”
The Jewel Ball Auction will take place on Heart of the Rockies Radio stations on September 17 beginning at 3:00 p.m. Tune in to The Peak 92.3 FM, Eagle Country 104.1 FM, or Hippie Radio 97.5 FM for a chance to win a Men’s Electra Cruiser Bike provided by Absolute Bikes, certificates to local golf courses, a Citrine Jewel necklace, a load of ACA gravel, and a succulent plant garden donated by Hittle Landscape Architects.
Sponsors for the No Go Gala campaign include Heart of the Rockies Radio, Collegiate Peaks Bank, Central Colorado Title & Escrow, Dr. Harry and Deborah Payton, Pure Greens, High Country Bank, D & D and Friends, Intalere, BV Friends, Comfurt Gas Inc., First Street Family Health, Katherine Granzella, Heart of the Rockies Radiology, Kozak & Gayer PA, Lund Eye Care, Dr. Bill Mehos, Parkview Medical Center, Pavement Maintenance Services and Sangre de Cristo Electric.
