“An Enchanted Forest Gala” at BASH 2019

Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation is excited to announce BASH (Building A Superior Healthcare System) 2019 will be held Saturday May 11 at the Watertown Event Center. BASH is an annual gala fundraising event hosted by the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation, with much support from donors and volunteers.

BASH 2019 will have an enchanted forest theme, encouraging guests to “see the forest through the trees”.  Proceeds from the event will be used to carry on the mission of the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation, looking past supporting the smaller items BASH typically funds (trees) and thinking of the bigger picture of supporting the healthcare system (forest) for years to come.

Elton Trueblood stated, “It takes a noble man to plant a seed for a tree that will someday give shade to people he may never meet”. If you or a loved one have enjoyed the “shade” Prairie Lakes Healthcare System has provided by way of medical services, business partnerships, employment or other ways- support BASH 2019.
