Boxcar Tavern Donates to Cancer Patients at WMH

Hospital

Patti Baumgartner (from left) and Lucy Penwell of the Boxcar Tavern presented a check for $2,646 to Wyandot Memorial Hospital Oncology Nurses Kandy Gretzinger, Brittany Schilling and Erika Hill for patients in treatment for cancer. The Boxcar contribution was raised through a special event it hosts each year for breast, prostate and testicular cancer awareness. Baumgartner volunteered to help Penwell with this year’s fundraiser, which included a live auction of items donated by area businesses and individuals. The Boxcar gift is earmarked for cancer patients at WMH to help with care-related needs during chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Nearly $21,000 has been raised for patients since the Boxcar started the event in 2011.
