ALTON, IL – The White Cross Auxiliary (WCA) of Alton Memorial Hospital is again having a mail-in fundraiser in 2022 instead of its usual “Girls on Grapes, Boys on Brew” event, which has been postponed for a third year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The deadline to donate is Aug. 1. For more information or to make a donation, please contact Irene McLaughlin at 618-530-8589 or Meg Dorris at 618- 530-7006.

Anyone who donates to the WCA will receive a gift certificate to a local business or restaurant. A donation of $25 to $50 will net a $10 gift certificate; a donation of $60 to $100 will net a $20 gift certificate; a donation of $110 to $150 will net a $30 gift certificate; a donation of $160 to $200 will net a $40 gift certificate, and a donation of more than $200 will earn a $50 gift certificate.

The White Cross Auxiliary’s mission this year is to provide more wheelchairs within the hospital as well as in the medical office buildings on the hospital campus. A person or business can sponsor a wheelchair and have a name placed on the back of a wheelchair for $1,200. 

The White Cross Auxiliary appreciates all the support that the community has given over the years to continue our support of the departments within the hospital.
