Lourdes Foundation hosts annual business breakfast

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA-Sponsors and contributors of the Lourdes Foundation today found out where their money has been invested over the past year.

Several hundred people attended the foundation's fourth annual business meeting, where supporters heard how donations have been spent, including a free mammogram program.

"We served 100 uninsured women this past year," says Connie Gillispie of the foundation. "Of those, five of them actually found out they truly did have breast cancer."

Sponsors and other contributors also supported a summer day-treatment program for children, equipment for Lourdes' Same Day Surgery Center, and $14,000 in scholarships to future health care workers in the community.
