The raffle raised $2,326, which was fully matched by the Sobrato Family Foundation for a total donation of $4,652, according to Dr. Wakako Nomura of the Kaiser Permanente office.
This year's raffle was "outstanding," he said.
Every holiday season each Kaiser department creates a gift basket to be part of an office raffle, according to Pat Carpenter, the medical group administrator. She said the clinical departments compete to provide the most attractive basket for employees to inspect during their lunch breaks.
The beneficiary of the fundraiser, the Community Health Awareness Council, provides counseling, therapy, support group classes and psycho-educational programs to local residents.
