The WCA Hospital Auxiliary is a group of individuals who raise money support the mission, growth and development of WCA Hospital.
The auxiliary, which has 130 members, provides a way for anyone in the community who has been served by WCA an opportunity to give back in support of the hospital.
Proceeds from the holiday sale will support the auxiliary's five-year pledge to support WCA's capital campaign. Through fundraisers and the support of the WCA Foundation, with one year still remaining on the pledge, the auxiliary has already surpassed its $176,000 goal by giving $203,000 to support the construction and equipping of WCA Hospital's new Emergency Department.
Cash, checks, Discover, MasterCard and Visa will be accepted.
