2012 Community Sale Recipient Announced

Mercy Medical Center announces the 22nd recipient of the 2012 Mercy Community Sale.  This year’s Community Sale recipient is . . . the Teton Booster Club of Williston State College!  The Booster Club is working to raise funds to support Phil Rabon Field (located on the WSC campus), as well as a new fastpitch softball field.  Rabon Field is the primary home of Teton Baseball and the fastpitch field will be used by the new college women’s program to debut in 2013.  Both fields will continue to be used by youth programs and local high school teams.  The Teton Boosters are kicking off their fundraising efforts for these projects with a projected $100,000 budget to complete this first phase.  “The growth of our athletic programs is an important part of our college and we are thankful that Mercy’s Community Sale will be the major kick-off to our softball program expansion.  Fastpich softball will be an exciting addition to our athletic offerings and providing a place to play on our campus is first on our priority list.  We look forward to partnering with the community and Mercy on this year’s Community Sale,” stated Hunter Berg, WSC Athletic Director.

The 2012 Community Sale coordinators include the following individuals: Rummage Sale – Rita Ann Deichert and Shawn Cote; Raffle Ticket Sales – Eric Peterson and Brett Vibeto; Concessions – Polly Vinger and Virginia Collings; Live and Silent Auction – Hunter Berg and Terry Olson; Marketing – Leslie Sullivan and Kayla Retzer; Event Coordinator – Kristin Mortenson.

To date, the Williston community has realized a cumulative total in excess of $676,000 as a result of the Mercy Community Sale.  These funds have been invested back into our community over the past 21 years, which have made numerous area youth projects a reality.  Mark your calendar for the 2012 Mercy Community Sale to be held on Saturday, April 28th at the Raymond Family Community Center in Williston.
