A snow storm wasn’t going to damper the mood at last weekends St Paul Hospital gala fundraiser, as the event saw hundreds have a great time and open their wallets to the charity. The hospital foundation isn’t saying how much they received just yet, but at least $61,000 was raised for hospital equipment and upgrades needed by the hospital.

A number of local businesses in the county including CNRL, AG Land and the local Elks and Legion also made donations to the hospital. The hospital was using the funds to buy a bariatric bed, ultrasound probe cleaning equipment, Holter monitor software and a bladder scanner. The total cost of the list is over $110,000.
