More than 300 people donated more than $16,000 to Trigg County Hospital’s digital mammography unit during the Trigg County Hospital Foundation’s second annual Hee Haw fundraiser, held Saturday night.

That is what Janet James, human resources director for Trigg County Hospital, said Monday afternoon. As it was last year, the dinner and show and dessert auction was modeled loosely after the “Hee Haw” television program and featured local celebrities and dignitaries, she said.

“It was fun, we had a good time,” said Trigg County Hospital Chief Executive Officer Alisa Coleman, who also performed.

Others who performed included Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries, Cadiz Police Chief Hollis Alexander, Magistrate Jon Goodwin, Alan Watts of WKDZ and Trigg County Solid Waste Director Jesse Thomas.

The digital mammography unit was installed in October 2010, with renovations made early last year. The hospital had applied for a $500,000 grant with a 15-percent – or about $80,000 – match on the hospital’s part, but didn’t end up getting the grant, so they have financed the digital mammography unit themselves and are making monthly payments on it.
