The Prairie Community Hospital Foundation's third annual Fall Fun for All event will be held at the Prairie County Fairgrounds Saturday, September 7. Dinner and activities will begin at 4 p.m. or shortly after the Terriers’ home football game.
A free-will pulled pork dinner will be offered. Live, silent and dessert auctions will also take place. Auction items lined up for this year will include a Black Hills vacation package, a John Deere child's bicycle, a shotgun, jewelry, barbecue grill, Terry Terrier sports fan package, MSU Bobcat football tickets, local photography and a Playstation gaming system.
Childrens’ activities available will include face painting, a bounce house, nail painting, a hoop shoot and hayrides.
This year’s Fall Fun 4 All event will also offer the popular instant wine cellar contest. To participate in the instant wine cellar simply bring a bottle or two of wine, receive a ticket for your bottle, then at the end of the evening one ticket will be drawn with the winner taking home all of the bottles.
One of the most popular events is the dessert auction. Local bakers donate their temptations to be auctioned throughout the evening.
PCH Foundation is graciously accepting any donations of desserts. Those interested may simply bring their dessert to the event or leave with one of the foundation board members.
The Fall Fun 4 All event provides great fun for all, but most importantly gives back to the community through the foundation’s work in supporting Prairie County’s local health care facility. The generous donations from local businesses and individuals make the event possible.
PCH Foundation is nearing completion of the first and very lofty hospital room renovation project with only a few doors and some lighting yet to be installed. The foundation has also assisted in the purchase of a portable x-ray machine and the purchase of a lab piccolo machine (blood testing machine).
In its short existence, generous donors have helped PCH Foundation raise over $138,000, but there is still more work to be done. Since the establishment in 2009, the 501c3 status foundation has partnered with charitably-minded donors to make a lasting difference toward health-related projects and services in Prairie County. Many accomplishments have been made together and it is the foundation’s goal to continue to make Prairie Community Hospital a comfortable environment for patients, visitors, and employees.
Those interested in donating auction items or who have questions regarding the foundation or the annual fundraising event please contact one of our board members: Rene Clarke, Patty Davis, Andy Pehl, Heather Carter, or Barb Sackman.
