Pediatric patients at OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center will have reason to smile thanks to a gift of ten “Curly the Bear” stuffed animals. Brianne Riley (left), communication specialist at OSF Saint Elizabeth, accepts the donation from Avon representatives Jennifer Herrera (center) and Christine Lawson (right). Members of the Avon District 5111 participated in a recent three-month fundraiser in which raffle tickets were sold locally for $5 each. For every $20 raised, a bear was purchased. OSF Saint Elizabeth is one of three area hospitals to benefit.
