Land Raffle Winner Announced?
St. Vincent Hospital Foundation congratulates Nicole Geraci of the Eagle Valley! Her name was drawn as the winner of the St. Vincent Hospital Foundation 2019 Colorado Land Rush Raffle on Saturday, 6/22 on the stage of the Leadville BBQ and Brew Fest.
Nicole has won 795 Juniper Lane, a forested .46-acre residential lot in Pan Ark Estates in Twin Lakes, Colorado. The raffle ticket sales totaled $51,825 and will assist St. Vincent Hospital in purchasing a new, state-of-the-art CT scanner to replace the current old scanner.
A CT scanner is essential for the Emergency Room in Leadville, which is 35+ miles from the next-closest medical facility. The imaging can help doctors stabilize patients for treatment in Leadville or for transfer to a trauma center. It also prevents injured or ill patients from having to travel over a mountain pass for evaluation.
“The raffle was a big success. We are so grateful for everyone who bought a ticket, promoted the raffle, and recognized the importance of helping our rural hospital,” commented Bob Smith St. Vincent Hospital Foundation Board Chair.
Your generosity supports sustainable healthcare in rural Lake County, Colorado. It allows us to continue making progress towards a better tomorrow—and provides equipment and service that may one day help you, your family, and your friends and neighbors.
Your donation combines with grant funds to enable us to improve our facility and patient care. In 2018, the hospital and foundation have been awarded grants for a new ambulance, new laboratory and radiology equipment, a new clinic roof and other facility repairs. Each award is accompanied by a cash match. We work to raise the money for the match on every grant received.
We wish to thank our funders: the Griswold Charitable Trust, El Pomar, Caring for Colorado, USDA Rural Facilities, DOLA Energy Impact Assistance Fund and CDPHE EMTS Provider Grant funds. We are also grateful to St. Vincent Hospital staff who donate to our team pledge fund, the hospital board of directors and our many other private donors.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, we take pride in our mission of fundraising and strive to carry on our hospital’s history of caring since 1879.
