RIDGEWAY – The Fairfield and Blythewood communities arrived at The Farm in Ridgeway in boots and jeans, dined on Doko Smoke barbecue, were entertained by The Twang Bomber’s bluegrass music and opened their wallets for this and that throughout the evening for live and silent auctions – all for the good cause of supporting their local hospital.

 

It was a community commitment to raise funds to improve the health of the community with the purchase of two stress test tread mills and a diabetes patient management program.

The Twang Bombers – Randy Lucas, left, Cary Taylor, Susan Douglass Taylor and Danny Harlow – entertained on the veranda of The Farm with some down-home bluegrass music.

“Thanks go to the community support that made the event a success,” said Mike Quinn, president of the Fairfield Memorial Hospital Foundation. “To me, it shows the commitment our community has to quality health care in our county.”

“We raised about $16,000,” Dawn Catalano, Executive Director of the Foundation said. “It was a wonderful evening and a gratifying show of community support which is what the hospital needs.”

This year’s event included a miniature pony for the kids to pet and an array of live and silent auction items for the adults.
