Essentia Health Christmas Extravaganzas & Superior Bake Sale Benefit Community

Get a jump on your holiday shopping and help a great cause at Essentia Health’s Christmas Extravaganzas and Superior Bake Sale, three hospital auxiliary events that benefit patients, their families and other worthy causes.

Proceeds help fund scholarships for medical students and support the purchase of comfort items for patients, such as stuffed animals and games for patients in our Children’s Hospital, materials for volunteers to make quilts and gas cards.

Carla Waldholm manages volunteer and auxiliary services at Essentia Health. “I love watching people at the events and the excitement they feel about the holiday season.  Just to see the reaction on their faces as we kick off the holiday season brings me joy,” Waldholm says.
