Evening With Friends sets fundraising record
BY DAVID PECK
Saturday night’s Evening With Friends fundraiser to benefit the North Big Horn Hospital Foundation set a record for the annual event with nearly $7,000 raised, Foundation Director Janet Koritnik said this week. Koritnik said 145 people attended the dinner and show at the Lovell Community Center, and the money raised will go toward the purchase of bar code scanners for patient rooms at the hospital, which help assure accuracy in the administering of medicine.
The highlight ofthe evening was the performance of musician/comedian Wayne Faust of Evergreen, Colo., who kept the audience in stitches and also played some toetapping music on his guitar and banjo. He even sang a song written about Lovell and the local area. “I was absolutely pleased. He is an incredible musician,” Koritnik said. “He was funny and had great crowd interaction. People just had a great time. “He was a fantastic entertainer. It was a very enjoyable evening.” Koritnik said she was also pleased that all of the North Big Horn Hospital providers attended the event: Dr. Troy Caldwell, Dr. Richard Jay, Dr. Brendan Fitzsimmons (coming on July 1), Ken Ferbrache, PA-C, Jack Carpenter, PA-C, and Mary Freund, NP-C. “I don’t think we’ve ever had that before,” Koritnik said. Dr. Deborah Brackett also returned from Big Piney-Marbleton to attend the event.
