(Crosby, MN) — Cuyuna Regional Medical Center will be adjusting the annual cancer patient fundraiser to go all virtual while still sharing survivor stories, presentations by healthcare providers, an online auction, and a social media challenge.

CRMC Charitable Fund Coordinator Jennifer Podsiadly spoke to us about how Kaleidoscope has evolved from its first event.

The silent auction will run Monday at 8am through Thursday at 8pm, and items can be seen on CRMC’s Facebook page.

Again, visit to view and bid on silent auction items. Oncology Care Coordinator Dustin Parks also joined the conversation to talk more on the Courage Cabinet, which is where funds go from Kaleidoscope to help cancer patients during their treatments.

The Courage Cabinet has benefitted numerous patients over the years, including one recent story.

A social media challenge using #cuyunacares to win a spa package is also apart of this year’s Kaleidoscope.

Share your story of celebrating a survivor in your life, remember a loved on or sharing your support of others by posting on the CRMC Facebook page with #cuyunacares and be entered into a drawing for a Grand View Lodge spa package. 

For more information on donations, Kaleidoscope, the online auction, the social media challenge, and more, email Jennifer Podsiadly or call 218-545-4455. Hear the full interview with Jennifer and Dustine here:
