With more than $5,200 raised, the McKenzie Health System Auxiliary’s “Fall into the Holiday Spirit” annual event was a resounding success.

Attendees enjoyed an evening of festive holiday drinks, snacks, and a wonderful chance to raise funds for a great cause.

“Like the dining rooms in our homes, our hospital’s dining room is an important place to gather, enjoy a good meal, and take a break or catch up with loved ones, so we are incredibly grateful to have raised more than $5,000 to support our upcoming renovation,” said Navarro. “Our community does a wonderful job of coming together to support each other and everyone definitely ‘fell into the holiday spirit this year! We appreciate our donors and everyone who joined us for this event.”
