Cortlandt Healthcare has raised $613 for the Pancreatic Cancer Society! We had three fundraisers for the cause. We had a jewelry show that raised over $100 for the event. At our Easter party we raffled beautiful baskets filled with goodies, raising over $200. Our biggest fund raiser was the bake sale; staff at Cortlandt Healthcare came together and volunteered their time to sell homemade baked goods. Staff baked cookies, brownies, cakes, chocolate lollipops and hand molded chocolate butterflies! The bake sale raised over $300!
