JACKSON, Wyo. \u2013 Stripping for a Cure presented the St. John\u2019s Hospital Foundation with a check for $85,000 to support the Women\u2019s Health Care Fund.\r\n\r\n"This gift, from women who want to help other women in our community, represents the true meaning of 'giving back.' Many of the donors have faced cancer themselves or have a friend or family member who has gone through treatment and understand the support necessary to get through a health issue like that," said Foundation president John Goettler.\r\n\r\nThe funds are derived from generous community participation in the 2019 Stripping for a Cure event. Over 60 female anglers were joined by 150 community members at the 10th annual two-day fundraiser for fishing, a silent auction and raffle, and festive dinners.\r\n\r\nStripping for a Cure, co-founded by Kay Jones and Susie McDowell, is a nonprofit women\u2019s fly fishing event that brings female anglers together to raise funds for the Women\u2019s Health Care Fund at St. John\u2019s Hospital Foundation.\r\n\r\n\u201cStripping for a Cure is pleased to be able to support local women in our community through the Women\u2019s Health Care Fund. We\u2019re grateful for the community\u2019s support of our event,\u201d said Stripping for a Cure co-founder Susie McDowell.\r\n\r\nThe Women's Health Care Fund provides support to women who need preventive health services but cannot afford them; who need support for travel to medical treatments; or who are in active treatment and need supplemental funds for items like child care, groceries, and medicine.
