The St. James Foundation would like to give a BIG thank you to everyone’s support to our Spirit Gala 18: Mardi Gras – it was a huge success! With “Mardi Gras” being the theme of this year’s event, the room was decked out in purple, green and gold, our attendees covered in feathers and beads and Cajun and Creole faire filled everyone’s plates - a fun night was had by all!
With over 500 people in attendance, the St. James Foundation was able to raise $125,000 to benefit critical equipment and needs in our Labor & Delivery department. Some of the highlights were: The St. James Auxiliary Volunteer Group, Dr. Nick & Judy DiGIovine and The Montana Standard all pledging $2500 to purchase 3 years of CertaScan, cutting edge technology that has the ability to both scan the feet and take a security photo of newborns in a hospital setting giving us the ability to capture precise identification (a true biometric) of a newborn that is good for life and can be used in dire situations such as abductions, when bracelets fall off, natural disasters, abandonments and hospital evacuations. St. James is proud to be the 1st hospital in Montana offering this service!
Also, Dan & Kim Steele spearheading the paddle pledges at $2500 for “Cribs for Kids,” whose mission is to prevent accidental deaths by educating parents and caregivers on the importance of safe sleep for infants and by providing Graco Pack n’ Play portable cribs and HALO SleepSack wearable blanket to families who otherwise cannot afford a safe place for their babies to sleep. Many other attendees followed suit with $100 pledges giving us the opportunity to provide over 50 mothers with this service.
