Local store gives back to community

Jim Sission, Manager of Hillsboro bomgaars, presents Hillsboro Community Hospital CNO DJ Craighead and CEO Mark Rooker with a check for $716.56. The donation came from the Nov. 5 Ladies Night event that bomgaars held.

“We held a three-hour event a ‘night of festive fun and fall shopping’ for ladies to shop at all of our bomgaars stores and then each store chose a health-related place to donate 5 percent of the proceeds to. For our store, we chose the Hillsboro Community Hospital and clinic. The community really came out and supported us because we were able to raise over $700 for the hospital in just three hours,” said Sission.
