Pioneer Memorial Foundation Extravaganza a Success!


VIBORG, SD:  The Pioneer Memorial Foundation hosted their Extravaganza on Saturday, Friday, March 23rd.  A big Thank You to the band, “Autumn Road” for playing great music throughout the evening!.

During the event, a live and silent auction was held while guests enjoyed heavy hors d’oeuvres.  Thank you to Joel Westra, Auctioneer for his help auctioneering.  This year, the event raised approximately $11,000 for the Pioneer Memorial Foundation, which will be used to improve the facilities and services at Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services.

Thank you to all of the supporters of the event, the table decorators, the volunteers who helped with the event, and all those who attended.  We would like to thank our community for your support and look forward to seeing you at future events.  Of course we could not have had such a great turnout without the help of the wonderful donors who are listed below in no particular order.
