The St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation received a very large check from the Kamaniskeg Area Property Owners Association (KAPOA).

The Foundation announced that the association’s Poker Run Event raised $19,620. The money will go towards buying a portable CPR machine, a doppler ultrasound used to diagnose problems with blood vessels, and a Tonometer, which is used to diagnose eye issues. All these pieces of equipment will be used by the Emergency Department at the St. Francis Memorial Hospital.

The Foundation says that over the last nine years, KAPOA has raised over $117,000 for the organization through its poker runs.

The Poker Run is one of several fundraising events for the Foundation being put on at this time. They are also running their online auction to raise money for a Glidescope core unit, which is a visual system used for airway procedures. The auction will wrap up at the Foundation’s annual golf tournament, which will be held on September 3rd.
