PHOTOS: ‘Hats On For Highline’ Raises Over $43,500
This past Saturday (May 7) the annual “Hats On For Highline” fundraiser took place at the Emerald Downs racetrack.
For the last three years this event has raised funds for general patient care and community health programs at the Highline Medical Center through a catered dinner, silent auction and raffles.
Guests were encouraged to wear hats to show their support for victims of cancer who have had to endure chemotherapy or radiation treatments, which often results in hair loss.
A panel of judges awarded prizes to hat-wearing attendees in five categories:
- Best Overall: Pam Stallcop
- Best Use of Roses: Mona Anderson
- Best Ensemble: Kerri Schroeder
- Most Creative: Angela Wenger
- Most Vintage: Fred Van Ess
The combined efforts for the weekend raised over $43,500 and resulted in their most successful fundraiser to date.
