Jamestown Regional Medical Center’s Auxiliary is welcoming the new season with a fun event to fight cancer. The annual Spring Bazaar is set for Friday, Apr. 7, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The Spring Bazaar will be held at JRMC outside the Gift Shoppe. Shoppers will be able to choose from a variety of homemade crafts, baked items, and books and puzzles.
JRMC Volunteer Coordinator Tiffany Wilkerson says the Spring Bazaar is one of her favorite events the auxiliary hosts because of the great quality of items, and of course, the baked goods.
“Last year people were lining up early before the event started, so they could buy the baked goods they wanted,” Wilkerson said. “It’s great to see the community rally to support such a great cause, the JRMC Cancer Center.”
Auxiliary member and event organizer Alice Williams said the event is a great opportunity to shop for unique handmade items like jewelry, baby gifts, or handmade blankets.
“There is an item for everyone at this event,” Williams said. “ Especially the baked goodies, they are always outstanding.”
All proceeds benefit the upcoming JRMC Cancer Center.
“You can’t find handmade crafts like these anymore. The skill involved in making these items is amazing,” Wilkerson said.
Last year’s event raised more than $1,300 for the JRMC foundation. And, to date, the auxiliary alone has raised more than $42,000 for the upcoming JRMC Cancer Center. As of March 30, the JRMC Foundation has raised $744,000 of its $1.5 million Cancer Center goal.
The JRMC Auxiliary consists of more than 40 volunteers. They meet on the first Monday of each month. If interested in volunteer opportunities, call (701) 952-4809.
