24th Annual Caring Angel Program
Basket Raffle & 50/50 Raffle
The BHS Foundation’s Caring Angel Program has been successful over
the past 28 years, raising nearly $2 million to benefit children, youth
and their families in Butler County. We are appreciative of the continued
support received from the community, BHS employees and Medical Staff,
local school districts and so many others.
The funds raised help families and children in need through educational,
therapeutic and support services at BHS Family Services. Family Services
Programs provide individual, family and group counseling, parent-child
interactive therapy, adolescent after school programming and much more.
Funds also support charitable emergency room care to children whose parents
or guardians do not have the resources to pay.
A majority of the fundraising efforts revolve around the Caring Angel Basket
Raffle which takes place at the beginning of December each year for a
one week period. Employees, physician offices, ambulance service providers
and other community members generously donate baskets. Raffle tickets
are then sold for a chance to win one of the baskets. There is also a
In 2020, the basket auction was adjusted due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Photos of the baskets were online, along with an order form for tickets.
Order forms were completed and sent to the BHS Foundation with a check
payment. A Drop and Drive event was held where participants could drive
through and drop off their order form. In addition, a drop box was located
at the local radio station. BHS staff members then filled all of the orders.
$55,000 was raised in basket ticket sales and $30,750 was raised for the
50/50 raffle, with the winner receiving half.
Plans are underway for the 2021 Basket Raffle, which will take place from
Wednesday, December 1st through Wednesday, December 8th. We will be following a similar structure as last year. More details will
be posted as plans are finalized.
In February 2021, a new fundraiser was added to the Caring Angel Campaign.
Chocolate “Appreciation Angels” could be ordered by hospital
employees and community members to recognize other employees and special
caregivers. $2,500 was raised for the Caring Angel Program.
