SMH battles cancer and provides hope in different, fun ways

Shelby Memorial Hospital (SMH) is working hard to defeat cancer and have fun while doing so. Join the fight by supporting any one of these events.

On Saturday, April 12, SMH will host its first-ever Quarter Auction Spring Bazaar. The doors will open at 11:45 a.m., and bidding will begin at 12:30. Some of the participating vendors for this event include Uppercase Living, Avon, Let Them Eat Cake, Tastefully Simple, Pampered Chef, Norwex, Origami Owl, Scentsy, Rodan and Field Skin Care, Jamberry Nails, Thirty-One, Mary Kay, a bake sale and many more homemade crafts. Please enter at the south side of the hospital. You will want to stop by the bank and bring a roll of quarters with you for bidding. This event will support the SMH Relay for Life team.

Phil Miller, CFO of SMH, challenges that he can sell more Cub raffle tickets than Caroline Reynolds, Director of the New Vision Department at SMH, can sell Cardinal raffle tickets.

Miller is selling chances for two Chicago Wrigley Field seats for Saturday, July 26, at the 1:15 p.m. game as the Cubs versus the Cardinals. Meanwhile, Reynolds is raffling two Busch Stadium seats for Sunday, August 31, at 1:15 as the Cardinals play the Cubs. Each chance costs one dollar, or you can buy 6 raffle tickets for $5.00. The contest takes place through Thursday, April 24, at 5 p.m.

The fan who sells the most raffle tickets for his or her own team wins bragging rights. The loser will dress in the opposing team’s colors on Friday, April 25, and as an additional penalty must kiss the goat “Peanut”. All proceeds from the Cards vs. Cubs Raffle will go to the SMH Relay for Life Team for the American Cancer Society. Tickets may be bought by calling the hospital at 774-3961. Please ask for Phil Miller or Caroline Reynolds.
