Yakima Valley Quilters donate $10,000 for mammograms
YAKIMA, Wash. — The Yakima Valley Quilters Guild is presenting ‘Ohana Mammography Center with a $10,000 check today in support of its scholarship fund.
The scholarship fund is used to help offset the cost of mammography imaging exams for patients unable to afford the full cost. The center is part of Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital.
The guild raised money by selling raffle tickets for handcrafted quilts. Since 2003, the guild has given ‘Ohana more than $36,500.
The check presentation is scheduled for 3 p.m. at the center, 1515 W. Yakima Ave. in Yakima, and coincides with ‘Ohana’s five-year anniversary celebration. Throughout the day, women will be treated to special classes — such as gentle yoga and Pilates — and pampering that includes pink hair extensions and nails, aromatherapy and anniversary cake and beverages.
