Supporters gathered at the Grundy County Memorial Hospital (GCMH) Foundation's Fall Fling luncheon and style show Thursday, September 22, 2011. Approximately 230 women attended the event at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church in Reinbeck and helped to raise more than $12,000.00 to support the GCMH Foundation. A portion of the funds were raised specifically to fund nutrition and infection control education for local schools and communities, $4,967.00 will go to this cause.
The Fall Fling offered women from around the area an opportunity to gather and enjoy an afternoon together. GCMH Chef Woody prepared lunch for guests and students from the Dike-New Hartford High School Student Council served the meal. A style show that featured clothing from Jennifer's on Main in Cedar Falls was the main event, followed by a raffle drawing for a $200 gift certificate to Jennifer's on Main, four day vacation on Lake Superior, evening out in Cedar Falls, and $25 Jiva Aveda gift certificate.
Forty two purses were donated by local businesses for the Fall Fling and each of these purses was given away as a door prize to one of the women in attendance.
