Patients, visitors get sweet treat at Ministry St. Clare's hospital

WESTON (WAOW) -- Patients and visitors at Ministry St. Clare's Hospital got a sweet treat Thursday. It was Strawberry Fest in Weston. Altenburg's Country Gardens in Wisconsin Rapids took part in the event.

Each basket of berries was $5. A portion of the money will be donated to Ministry Medical Group. The group helps programs throughout the hospital.

"It's kind of way of providing an unique opportunity to get a healthy food to some folks, something we always try to do. We just thought it was a neat opportunity given the season and try to bolster our fund-raising efforts here," said Tom Weaver Ministry public relations manager.

Farmer's say this year's strawberry crop was one of the best on record.
