November 30, 2018 – Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation is thrilled to announce that we have received $11,541.00 in proceeds from our local law enforcement’s Pink Patch Project, a fundraiser created to help support local patients fighting breast cancer. Proceeds will go toward life-saving breast cancer services at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. Local agencies participating were: Nevada County Police Department, Grass Valley Police Department, the California Highway Patrol and Nevada County Sheriff’s Office. We would also like to thank Riebes Auto Parts for their generous contributions to the project.
