Pullman Regional holds tree raffle to provide comfort care items


The Pullman Regional Hospital Auxiliary is holding its 17th annual Christmas tree raffle now through Dec. 14 to provide patient comfort care items.

Those comfort care items include massage chairs in patient waiting areas, glider rockers in the hospital’s BirthPlace, and VR headsets to help distract patients during uncomfortable procedures, said Alison Weigley, director of external relations. The raffle tickets usually raise around $5,000 in ticket sales each year.

The 3-foot trees were donated and decorated by different local businesses and departments at the hospital. 

The trees are on display at Diane’s Gift Garden, near the front entrance of the hospital at 835 SE Bishop Blvd, Pullman. Tickets are $1 each and can be purchased at Diane’s Gift Garden.
