Fry Healthcare Foundation hosting dessert dash

The Fry Healthcare Foundation is excited to announce that they are hosting a special raffle event on February 12 to raise funds for a new surgical table for Boundary Community Hospital.

COVID might keep us from gathering for our annual Festival of Hearts event, but it can’t take away the importance of continued fundraising for our small community hospital nor can it dampen our community’s giving spirit!

Tickets will be on sale from January 21 until noon on Thursday, February 11, at which time grand prize winners and Dessert Dash winners will be selected.

There are three grand prizes and 25 Dessert-dash confections that will be raffled off with “dashers” getting to choose and pick-up their desserts at 4 p.m. Friday, February 12, at Riverside Auto Center.

“All of our delectable desserts have been crafted by local businesses and individuals who are well-known for their luscious confections, and our grand prizes have been donated by local businesses that always generously support our annual Festival of Hearts event,” organizers said.

Tickets will be available from Fry Healthcare Foundation board members for a donation of $10 each. Call (208) 267-6912 or visit for more information.

Follow the Fry Healthcare Foundation Facebook page each day from January 21 through February 11 for the featured luscious desserts so you can decide which one you want to dash for if you win!

Fry Healthcare Foundation will be raising funds in 2021 to purchase a new surgical table at a cost of over $26,000. While the current refurbished surgery table has served its purpose over the last 15 years, it limits the ability of the Boundary Community Hospital Surgery Department to meet the current needs.

“We want to expand our local surgery capabilities and services for the community,” said surgery manager April Bennett, MSN RN. “A new surgical table will allow our surgeons the ability to perform more complex procedures with added features like dynamic positioning and the ability to have a clear view for x-rays while performing orthopedic procedures.”
