SAYRE — Guthrie welcomed representatives from Dandy and Williams Auto Group to Robert Packer Hospital on Wednesday, Nov.15, as the organization accepted over $50,000 in donations following two recent breast cancer awareness campaigns.  

Funds raised during October’s Dandy “Pink Cups for a Cure” and Williams Auto Group “Drive Pink” campaigns will benefit the Guthrie Breast Care Fund which helps breast care patients receiving treatment at Guthrie with the cost of medication, post-surgical supplies, diagnostic testing, and other items not covered by insurance.

As one of Dandy’s key community initiatives, this campaign is deeply meaningful for our employees, customers, and communities. Guthrie does tremendous work in assisting local breast care patients who need extra help, and our employees take pride in supporting this work through the success of the Pink Cups campaign” said Dandy President Randy Williams.
