Letter: Quilt raffle raises $11,000

Every December, the Valley View Auxiliary conducts a quilt raffle to help support our medical education program. We give $30,000 annually in scholarships and also support the Connie Delaney Medical Library, which is open to anyone who wants to use it. This year we raised more than $11,000 with the raffle thanks to dedicated volunteers who peddled tickets to friends, relatives and total strangers.

In addition to our ticket sellers, we would like to give a special “thank-you” to Alpine Bank for providing our second-place prize of four Avalanche tickets, and to Bighorn Toyota for providing our third-place prize of $500. Your generosity and support is very much appreciated, and we thank you. We couldn’t provide the scholarships and library support without your help. It is wonderful to have community businesses who so graciously aid in our endeavors.
