East River holding virtual auction fundraiser for LifeScape Thursday

East River Electric Power Cooperative is holding its annual LifeScape fundraiser today, with a little different twist this year.  Today’s 57th annual Lifescape Fundraiser is a virtual event instead of an oyster feed.  The event consists of an online auction going on throughout the day today with items donated by businesses in the community. 

Proceeds from the online auction will benefit LifeScape, formerly Children’s Care Hospital and School and SD Achieve, whose mission it is to empower people to live their best lives. With more than 298-thousand dollars contributed to LifeScape over the years, East River’s annual fundraisers have helped provide for the very best in medical care, therapy, education and other services for the children at LifeScape.

Jessica Wells, LifeScape Foundation president, said the support from East River Electric and the Madison community enables their Journey of Hope to bring increased technology-based solutions, leading research in innovative treatment options and care closer to home.  She said that nearly 14-hundred children and adults from the Madison area and within the footprint of East River Electric Power Cooperative will be impacted.
