Photograph Drawing
1:00 AM - 1:00 AM

The Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is conducting a drawing for two beautiful photographs taken and donated by Pauline Champlin. One photo is “Sunflowers in the Finger Lakes” and the other is “Apple Orchard & Keuka Lake in Springtime”. 

The photographs are being displayed in the main lobby of the hospital, 418 North Main Street, Penn Yan. Tickets are available at the Peppermint Parlor at Soldiers & Sailors, from members of the Auxiliary and volunteers at Soldiers & Sailors. Tickets are $1 each; 3 for $2 or 10 for $5. The drawing will be held on Friday, May 2. The holder of the first ticket drawn will get to pick the photograph he/she wants and the other one will go to the holder of the second ticket drawn. 

Proceeds from the drawing will be used by the Auxiliary to supports projects at the Hospital and Homestead, including the annual fund to enhance access to healthcare for area residents.
