The Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation hosted BASH (Building A Superior Hospital) on Saturday, May 9 at the Watertown Event Center. This annual gala event is a “friend”/ fund raiser for the Foundation. What a night! Three hundred eighty six guests were in attendance, an increase from last year.

The event netted $54,500. This year, the proceeds will be used to enhance ear, nose, throat & facial plastic surgical services at Prairie Lakes. Prairie Lakes introduced full-time ENT services to the region the fall of 2014 with the opening of the Prairie Lakes Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Clinic in Watertown with the addition of Dr. Jered Mancell, otolaryngologist, to the medical staff.

Corporate sponsors of BASH donating $3,000 were Brown Clinic, Evident & TruBridge and Redlinger Bros. P&H. There were 20 corporate sponsors donating $1,000, in addition to smaller dollar donors. Those providing monetary donations, items for the auction/raffle and winning bids are greatly commended for their generosity. Special thanks to the BASH committee for their time and talents. There is no success without the donors, volunteers and attendees.

The mission of the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation is: Healthcare is a vital component of a community’s quality of life. Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation exists to raise funds with which to support and advance the health services available to the Watertown area through Prairie Lakes Healthcare System.

If you wish to join the Foundation in its efforts to help more people, expand facilities, acquire cutting-edge equipment and attract top medical professionals, call the Foundation office at 882-7631. Your continued support will help us meet the healthcare challenges of tomorrow.
