St. Joseph’s Memorial Foundation Salad Luncheon raised more than $3,800 in late April to help support the work of Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics in Hillsboro.
The luncheon was scheduled to start at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 26, but many hungry attendees were already lining up at 10:30 a.m. in anticipation for this year’s offering.
“I’m new to my role, so this year’s luncheon is my first experience of the legendary salad luncheon,” said Dan Howard, marketing and foundation director at Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics. “It’s pretty impressive, and the foundation members have done an incredible job. They have the execution of this event down to an art form, and they are so passionate and dedicated to the mission of St. Joseph’s Memorial Foundation.”
The event hosted about 305 people, raising more than $2,500 in ticket sales alone. The accompanying geranium sale sold out, adding another $1,170.
