CVRMC Foundation Presents, A Mardi Gras Masquerade continued

The Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center Foundation will be hosting their bi-annual Art and Wine Auction on Oct. 25, 6 p.m. at the Gila County Fairgrounds.

This year’s theme is A Mardi Gras Masquerade – Because behind every mask is a reason for early detection. Each of us has been affected by the direct or ripple effect of breast cancer. This year’s proceeds will help Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center purchase a new Tomosynthesis (3D) Mammography Machine, which is the gold standard in early detection of breast cancer. If you would like to make a donation to this great cause, checks may be mailed to: CV Foundation/3D Mammo, Attn.: Evelyn Vargas, 5880 S. Hospital Drive, Globe, AZ 85501.

More featured artists include:

Jim Lindstrom grew up in Tempe, AZ where he developed a fascination for photography at a very young age. He remembers his father bringing home their first Nikon camera after a business trip to Japan. Jim still keeps this camera in a special case in his home along with over 50 other vintage cameras collected through the years. Jim’s favorite photography subjects are landscapes and flowing streams. Anytime he can hop in the car and take a drive with his camera is a great day.

In 1987, after seven years in San Carlos, Jan Pederson decided to make Globe her home. Wanting to meet more people, she decided to take quilting classes at Country Corner with Janice McInturff. “Those classes ignited my passion for quilting,” Jan states. “I integrated this passion into my Home Economics class at San Carlos Jr. High until I retired in 2003.”

At this time, Jan was very active with our local quilting guild, Copper Country Quilters, as well as the Arizona Quilters Guild and later served on the board of the Arizona Quilters Hall of Fame. “The friends I have made through quilting are invaluable. Quilting is ‘what I do’.”

Volunteer members of the CV Foundation include: Matt Storms, Ellen Kretsch, Fernando Shipley, Franceen Gregovich-Benton, Ian Lamont, Marilynn Rasmussen, Diana Wheeler, Martha Wheeler, Veronica Gossett, and student volunteers – Gabriel Jacott and Ernesto Angeles.

Tickets for the event may be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce, CVRMC Gift Shop, any Foundation member, on-line at – click on “Mardi Gras,” or with Matt Storms at American Family Insurance, 928-425-8543.
