UPHS-Portage holds special Valentine's Day fudge sale
UP Health System-Portage held a special Valentine’s Day sale from its gift shop Thursday.
In the hospital lobby, Devon's Mackinac Island Fudge Company set up shop, selling fudge and gourmet popcorn for anyone looking for a sweet treat for the holiday. It was the final day of the fudge company's tour of pop up shops in areas across Upper Michigan.
This is one of the few special sales, the gift shop runs throughout the year.
"It's been a very successful sale for us, this is the fourth year that we've done this and it's been a great fundraiser. Everybody loves it, the employees love it, and it's good," said Ronda Bogan, a Volunteer Gift Shop Manager at UPHS-Portage.
A portion of the money raised from the sale goes toward the Portage Health Auxiliary. They in turn donate it to charities in the community.
