Fundraising for Medical Equipment in Juneau County
In addition to having small, unique fundraising events, Mile Bluff Medical
Center Foundation holds several large fundraisers throughout the year,
including the annual golf outing and Women’s Night Out. These events
not only raise funds for the foundation, they also spread awareness about
the organization's mission.
With the money raised each year, Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation is
able to purchase needed equipment for the medical center, provide scholarships
for healthcare students, and organize community events.
