Officials from Minot’s MarketPlace Foods stores presented an impressive $14,910 to Trinity Health Foundation Dec. 10 – the proceeds from the retailer’s Power of Pink Cake Auction, which was held October 9 at the North Hill Store. Forty-eight businesses and other groups pitched in to decorate and purchase the cakes.
The funds will go a long way to support patients enrolled in Trinity Health’s Cancer Exercise Rehab program, which offers clinical exercise and conditioning for cancer patients and survivors.
South Broadway Store Manager Craig Heupel credited the event’s success to the community coming together and to the efforts of MarketPlace Foods staff. He also gave a special shout-out to the Sundsbak family for their hard work.
“It’s so great to see patients participate and return the next year as survivors,” he said. “It’s working; people are beating cancer.”
