Good Shepherd Medical Center Hosts 3rd Annual Easter Basket Auction

 

A visit from the Easter Bunny is just around the corner! Easter baskets have become a tradition with many families, and this year Good Shepherd employees are putting a new spin on things.

The Employee Activities Council at Good Shepherd is hosting their third annual Easter Basket Silent Auction on Monday, March 10 and Tuesday, March 11, in the main lobby of the hospital.

A number of employees have donated their time, money and imagination to create one-of-a-kind baskets with a good cause - and the highest bidder - in mind.

All money received from the basket sales will benefit Good Shepherd's Care and Share Fund. This fund was created to provide assistance to employees who are experiencing a financial burden due to the unforeseen loss of an immediate family member, unexpected medical costs or the loss of a homestead due to a natural disaster. The Care and Share Fund is solely supported by Good Shepherd employees through monetary donations. The last two years combined, the event raised more than $4,000 for the fund.

The Easter Basket Silent Auction is open to the public. The themed baskets will be on display both days, and bidding will end at 3 p.m. on Tuesday. In order to bid you have to sign up in the lobby of Good Shepherd Medical Center.

The individual with the highest bid will be contacted to receive his or her basket just in time for Easter Sunday, March 23.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
