The annual auxiliary candy sells at the Greene County Medical Center will take place this Thursday at 7am.
Public Relations Director Carla Offenburger says that this fundraiser is very organized and draws a lot of attention from both the public and the medical center staff. She explains that over the past of couple of years, this fundraiser has raised between $1,500-$1,800 and she expects around $1,800 this year. What makes the auxiliary candy sells so successful is the homemade holiday treats.
There are a wide range of items for purchase like homemade fudge, chocolate-covered peanuts and cherries and candied apples. The auxiliary members will pre-package the goodies on Wednesday night with the smaller decorative plates going for $8-$12 and the larger plates for $15. The plates are wrapped so that you can take them to holiday parties or give them as Christmas presents to loved ones.
Offenburger points out the auxiliary candy sell goes until all the candy is gone which is usually until 9am. The candy sells will be in the main lobby and the outpatient lobby of Greene County Medical Center on Thursday.
