WGH AUXILIARY BASKET CONTEST 2019
The annual Warren General Hospital Christmas Basket Contest returns again this year December 2nd through December 6th in the Hospital Outpatient Lobby. One of the biggest fundraisers for the hospital auxiliary, this contest challenges the different hospital departments and others, to create fantastic baskets filled with generous contributions.
If this season is similar to past years, you might see big-screen TVs, sports equipment, money trees, gift certificates, kitchen appliances, toy boxes full of games, and other fabulous over-the-top "baskets". The WGH Auxiliary earned over $22,000 last year on ticket sales. Again this year, all Basket Contest proceeds will assist the Auxiliary Board in addressing hospital and department needs such as the Valet Service, the Scholarship Program, and like medical-grade refrigerators, heart monitors, neonatal and adult monitoring systems and many other items!
Tickets are $1.00 and will be sold only in the WGH Outpatient lobby from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Monday through Thursday, December 2nd-5th, and from 7:00 am until 1:00 pm on Friday, December 6th. The tickets will be counted to determine the "winning" department and the drawing for the baskets will take place between 2:00 pm and 2:30 pm Friday, December 6th. Winning Baskets will need to be picked up between 2:30 pm and 6:00 PM on Friday, December 6. The first, second and third place "winning" departments will be able to choose a charity to receive a nice Christmas check and, of course, the "winning" ticket holders will be able to take home an amazing basket of goodies and the knowledge that they have helped their local hospital! Bring address labels to save time writing your name, address and phone number on multiple tickets. Buy your tickets and vote for the best basket, the basket you would like to take home.
Take a chance on a fantastic basket and support a good cause, the Warren General Hospital Auxiliary. Maybe you will win something special! Don’t forget to add a trip to the Window Box Gift Shop to your holiday shopping where you will find many unique holiday decorations, gifts, and food items.
Merry Christmas from the WGH Auxiliary Board of Directors!
