Bolos and Boots - Friday July 19
Each summer since 2004, community leaders and businesses gather at an area restaurant for the annual fundraiser of the San Luis Valley Health Foundation for an evening of dinner, entertainment and the opportunity to recognize others who have gone above and beyond in their support of San Luis Valley Health.
McDonald's String Golf Tournament - Sunday July 21
Tough Enough to Wear Pink – Ski High Stampede July 25-28
Del Monte Gun Club Sporting Clay Shoot – August 24 & 25
Since 2004, the Del Monte Gun Club has hosted an annual clay shoot to raise funds for the Stephanie L. Miner Women's Imaging Center. After the center was opened, the money raised was used to help start the "CARE Fund". These donations help women with financial needs associated with services at the Stephanie L. Miner Women's Imaging Center.
Stephanie L. Miner 5k Walk/Run – Saturday October 5
The Annual Stephanie L. Miner Women's Imaging Center 5K Walk/Run takes place on a Saturday morning each October in Cole Park; registration begins about six weeks prior. Held since 2004, proceeds from the Walk first helped with construction costs of the Stephanie L. Miner's Women's Imaging Center that officially opened in 2006. Event proceeds are now earmarked to help improve and enhance services at the Center; including the recent purchase of a digital mammography unit and two ultrasound units.

SLV Health Employee Campaign
Since 2004, employees have given back over $350,000 toward improving patient services and supporting one another. The Employee Campaign is the main fundraiser for our Employee Assistance Program, a program that has assisted many employees and their families facing difficult circumstances. Through the years, the money has also been used to purchase items for several departments. From the very simple — such as cordless headphones for patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments, to a more efficient nurses' station in the ER, to a completely remodeled cafeteria where both staff and visitors can dine — employee contributions have made a BIG difference throughout the hospital.
The CARE Fund provides financial resources for patients to acquire care associated with the Stephanie L. Miner Women's Imaging Center who cannot otherwise pay for these services. Since November 2008, More than 125 women have since received assistance for procedures that include mammograms, breast and pelvic ultrasounds, breast MRIs.
The CARE fund was started by a generous donation from the Magnolia Society and the Del Monte Gun Club and now receives contributions from several other local organizations.
