Mayo Clinic United Way Fall Fundraiser an Outstanding Occasion

On Tuesday, October 25, Mayo Clinic employees at the Superior Drive Support Center in Rochester, MN, held a Halloween-themed fundraiser for the United Way. The festivities included an annual pumpkin-decorating contest, drawing items, and, of course, food. At the end of the day, the “Fit for a Fairy—the Littlest Pumpkin Patch,” created by the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology (DLMP) IM/PMO Administrative Assistants, took the top prize in the pumpkin showdown. Overall, an outstanding total of $5,100 was raised for the United Way.
