Scotland County Hospital encouraged the community to be SWEET Saturday evening

The Scotland County Hospital has deemed October 19th, "the sweetest day."

Saturday evening the hospital hosted a dinner fundraiser to help cover mammography equipment costs, which CEO, Marsha Dial, says is their "sweet" token to the community.

â??We have known that we had a need for digital mammography equipment and so we went ahead and placed the equipment so we could start caring for people and now we are asking that, reaching out to the communities to help us retire the debt on that piece of equipment,â?? said Dial.

The dinner was Scotland County's very first fundraiser and tickets sold quickly. Many community leaders came out to make the night a success.

Three founding members of the Scotland County Hospital were also present to support the fundraiser.
