PHF’s ‘Forks & Flavors’ fundraiser to benefit new mammogram machine

One of the fund-raising events Saturday night at the Pioneers Healthcare Foundation’s Forks & Flavors fundraiser was a silent auction of donated goods and expensive gift baskets. Above, attendees at the dinner/dance/casino night take a look at the silent auction items, writing down their bids as they proceed around the Fairfield Center lobby. A couple thousand dollars was raised through the auction as part of the event to raise funds for a new 3-D mammography machine.

After the Forks & Flavors dinner held as part of the Pioneers Healthcare Foundation fundraiser event was casino night, when those in attendance could either stay in the main room at the Fairfield Center and dance or go out to the lobby and partake in some fun casino games. One such game was blackjack or “21” as seen above.

Professional dealers from Grand Junction kept the for-fun gamblers in line Saturday evening during the casino night portion of the Forks & Flavors Pioneers Healthcare Foundation annual fundraiser event. The dinner and fun were held at the Fairfield Center in downtown Meeker, and entertainment was provided by the Matt Holliday Band and casino night, which included the opportunity for one to brush up on the rules of craps, seen above.

The idea is to bounce a ping pong ball off the table and into one of the cups of one of bras against the wall. It is not an easy feat, as most of those who tried the game found out.
