Over the years, many of you have surely visited an auxiliary Rummage Sale for super bargains for your home and family, viewed what's new for fall at a Fashion Show, or had a great spaghetti dinner at Holly Days. Did you know that, while you were enjoying these Service Auxiliary events, you were also helping our health center provide valued services?

Dollars from these and other auxiliary projects support services of Salina Regional Health Center and Salina Regional Health Foundation in our regional community. The Salina Regional Health Center Service Auxiliary recently distributed funds to three local organizations. The funds were raised through Gift Shop sales and the Auxiliary Fashion Show held in October.

More than 80 models from 15 area stores participated in the Fashion Show. Platinum sponsors for the Fashion Show were Barton Bycroft, DMD, Bank of Tescott. Central Care Cancer Center. Mark and Bonnie Neubrand/Pronto Print, Salina Regional Health Center and S&B Markets (Courtyard by Marriott and The Hampton Inn).
