The Auxiliary of Milford Memorial Hospital’s annual Fall Fling raised more than $28,000.

The proceeds from the Sept. 23 event support the Auxiliary’s pledge to purchase a new patient van for the Bayhealth Cancer Center, Milford Memorial.

Event chairwoman Cynthia Jones thanked the community for supporting the fundraiser and her 10-member committee for their work.

“Thanks to all of the sponsors and to those who came out for the event. Even Mother Nature cooperated. It was a casual event, on a beautiful night, and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves," Jones said.

The auxiliary will host a fall fundraiser in 2018.
