Baptist Health volunteers say ‘thank you’ to raffle supporters

CORBIN — The volunteers of Baptist Health Corbin would like to say “thank you” to all who bought chances on the quilts and afghan during the months of October and November. The winners were drawn Nov. 18.

Bobby Joe Eaton, the chaplain of Baptist Health, drew the names, and the lucky winners were R. Martin, Phyllis Begley, Amanda Capps and Harold Jackson.

We collected a total of $1,545 during the raffle, which will go to the cancer unit to buy wigs for patients that need them.

Once again, thank you from all of us at Baptist Health Volunteer Services.

Brenda Ketron

President, Baptist Health Volunteers
