Gearing up for the Festival of Hearts
November 7, 2017
The 2018 Fry Healthcare Foundation's Festival of Hearts takes place at 6 p.m. Saturday, February 10, at the Kootenai River Inn.

The Festival of Hearts is the foundation's major fundraising event of the year to raise funds for Boundary Community Hospital.

With the money from the 2017 Festival of Hearts, combined with funds from the 2016 Golf Tournament, the Fry Healthcare Foundation was able to fund the entire $41,000 for the Spacelabs Healthcare Cardiac Monitoring Central Station Control System for Boundary Community Hospital.

They have an ambitious goal for 2018 — to purchase two Stryker Gurneys for Outpatient Surgery as well as up to two AccuVein AV400 Vein Visualization Instruments for Emergency and the Medical Laboratory.

The Festival of Hearts will feature a specially prepared five-course dinner with wine, the "Way to Your Heart Dessert Dash," "Open Your Heart Fund-an-Item" and "Follow Your Heart Live Auction."

Platinum sponsorships are $1,500 and include up to eight dinner tickets. Gold sponsor, $1,000, includes four dinner tickets, silver sponsorships are $750 and include two dinner tickets.

Donor categories are Diamond, $1,000 or more, Bronze, $500-$999, and Copper, $250 to $499. Open Your Heart Donor Donations of any amount specifically for Fund-An-Item are also welcome.

Dinner tickets are $60 each and will be available beginning January 8 until February 2 while they last. Seating is limited and expected to go quickly.

All sponsors and donors that RSVP by January 9, 2018, will be recognized at the event, on the website and in social media.
