Buy a gift basket and help support JA World

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Yakima Regional Hospital is trying to raise a lot of money for Junior Achievement of Washington.

Friday from 11am to 6pm you can bid on more than 150 baskets that will be on display in the hospital's auditorium.

There are Christmas baskets and Halloween baskets, and just about everything in between.

All the proceeds will go directly to the Junior Achievement World facility in Terrace Heights.

"Everything that is spent when the community comes together tomorrow to buy these baskets will go to putting these kids through these programs," said Greg Jewell with Junior Achievement of Washington.

Regional Hospital says it all started as a way to raise money so they could participate in JA World's Bowling Bash.

But thanks to donations from the community, hospital employees and even Starbucks, they're hoping to raise even more money.
