Clothesline Art Sale & Auction Results in $518 to A Clear ViewPosted: July 27, 2012

Her constant energy and commitment to the A Clear View ~ digital mammography campaign is keeping Fernie’s Stephanie Rogers busy these days.

Not only is the inspiring entrepreneur (owner of Stephanie’s Glass & Art Studio) dedicating much of her time to her business; it’s her volunteer efforts to support East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s major capital campaign that is inspiring.

Earlier this year Stephanie created the ‘I’m a Breast Buddy Ski/Board-a-thon event’ held at the Fernie Alpine Resort which witnessed almost $25,000 in pledges raised for the imaging equipment.

Over the past several weeks, Steph’s Breast Buddy spirit is back again with her latest creative venture the Clothesline Art Sale & Auction.

Thanks to many Elk Valley and Crowsnest Pass contributing artisans the sale and auction received some outstanding pieces and although a major rain storm on July 15 kept buyers at bay the event helped the mammography campaign with an additional $518 to the cause.

Remaining unsold pieces are not being forgotten and many will be making their debut  (for auction or sale) at other Clear View fundraising events in the East Kootenay.

Stephanie Rogers, another face of the A Clear View fundraising effort to bring a digital stereotactic mammography unit to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.    Whether you live in the Elk Valley, Golden, Columbia Valley, Creston or the Cranbrook/Kimberley area attendance at these events and your donations will make a difference in the lives of an individual facing a breast cancer diagnosis.

In 2011 over 2,000 breast cancer screenings were conducted by the Diagnostic Imaging Department at the regional hospital.

EKFH encourages you to join in the journey to be part of the picture to bring digital stereotactic mammography to the East Kootenay.  Donations are graciously accepted at www.aclearview.ca, at your local hospital or the foundation office in Cranbrook.

For more information contact Donna Grainger, EKFH’s Executive Director at 250 489-6481 or toll-free 1-877-489-6481.
