WVUH to Raffle West Virginia Flag

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia flag that was flown at WVU’s Woodburn Circle on July 4, 2005, during President George W. Bush’s visit to Morgantown is being raffled at WVU Hospitals this month.

A signed statement of authenticity from President Bush will accompany the flag. Both the flag and statement are on display in the Hospital’s cafeteria.

In addition to the flag, an Americana gift basket from the Friends Gift Shop is being raffled. Chances are $1 each, six for $5 or 15 for $10. Tickets are on sale in the Gift Shop through noon on Monday, Feb. 20.

Proceeds from the raffle will support the Hospital’s Employee Emergency Fund, a resource for employees who have unpredictable, unexpected and emergency financial needs.
