This year’s Buy It Now proceeds are being directed to help purchase new surgical equipment for Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. Fundraising activities, including Buy It Now, will focus on a goal to raise $350,000 by June 30th. The equipment will benefit those needing general or emergency surgery, are having women’s health issues, need surgery to deliver a baby, have breast cancer, or suffer with ear, nose and throat concerns. To date, we are about 25 % of the way to our goal.

“Our Buy It Now fundraiser is a perfect way to support our community hospital, while also finding some meaningful gifts and local experiences perfect for friends or loved ones,” said SNMHF Executive Director Kimberly Parker. “Your participation in Buy It Now is a win-win that will bring joy and excitement to you or someone you care about, while helping your hospital and community.”
