Blizzard Blast exceeded fundraising goal

To the Editor:
On behalf of hospice patients and their families, we would like to thank the Glencoe and Hutchinson communities for their support of 2015 Blizzard Blast. We raised a total of $30,292, which surpassed our $30,000 goal.  
A special thanks to our guests, volunteers, individuals who donated auction items, Rhinestone for providing entertainment, Chef Craig for donating appetizers and preparing a great meal, Glencoe City Center and Hannah for being so accommodating, Wendy’s Wonder Works for helping with decorations, and Dr. John Bergseng for emceeing the event.
We couldn’t have achieved this goal without the hard work and dedication of Sara Kramer and the 2015 Blizzard Blast Committee: Lona Oltmann, Gail Rolf, Mary Trnka, Rachel Clausen, Sherri Stamps and Leslie Johnson.  
Thanks again for making a difference in the lives of hospice patients and supporting our new music and massage therapists — two important positions that will provide comfort to our friends and loved ones at the end of life.    
Ron Bagnall
Allina Health Hospice Foundation
P.S. Please join us next year on Jan. 29 for the 2016 Blizzard Blast.
