Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital foundation hosts ‘Buy It Now’ fundraiser for emergency department

Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation will host a one-of-a-kind, phone-in fundraising event for Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department Transformation starting at 8 a.m. on Nov. 14.

The “Buy It Now” fundraiser will feature a variety of specially curated experiences sure to dazzle a family member or loved one, just in time for the holiday gift-giving season. Potential buyers will need to call at 530-477-9700 at 8 a.m. sharp and state, “I want to buy it now!” in order to purchase any of the items.

Individuals can take their pick from a variety of options including (but not limited to): a scenic, local ride for up to three people in a Piper Comanche airplane, a breathtaking photo of the Yuba River Bridge by local photographer Dr. Rob Lowe, wine tasting and appetizers for eight at Back Porch Market, a hot air balloon ride for two in Napa, a houseboat day trip for eight on Bullard’s Bar, a platinum membership to Best Life Fitness Academy, donuts and a tour of Grass Valley Police Department with Chief Alex Gammelgard, two dozen homemade biscotti a month for one year by Marty Lombardi and more.

“Our Buy It Now fundraiser is a perfect way to give back to local, community healthcare while eliminating the pressure of bidding through a traditional auction,” said Executive Director Kimberly Parker. “Sometimes you just want to ‘buy it now’ and that is exactly what we hope you’ll do.”
