Kootenai Health Foundation Fantastic Support for The Kootenai Health Foundation works with generous donors in our community to raise support to enhance the health care services available in northern Idaho. Its signature event, the Festival of Trees, is a wonderful opportunity for supporters to bid on lavishly decorated trees and displays to benefit Kootenai Health. Here are a few highlights from this past November’s Festival and comments from longtime supporters. Scott Anderson, Mountain West Bank “Mountain West Bank proudly supports the mission of Kootenai Health and its efforts to provide quality health care throughout northern Idaho and the Inland Northwest. The Festival of Trees gala is a wonderful opportunity for our community to celebrate the kickoff of the holiday season.” Nicole Jacklin, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices/Jacklin Real Estate “Kootenai Health has always been there for us. In 2018, our son was born at 29 weeks and spent 33 days in the NICU at Kootenai Health. Our experience was nothing short of amazing. My mother, Deb Mongeau, was a nurse at Kootenai Health for years, and we started decorating for the Festival of Trees 15 years ago. It is something very close to our hearts and something we look forward to all year. Wade and I, our entire family, and Berkshire Hathaway will always be huge supporters and advocates of our local hospital.” Ron McIntire, Super 1 Foods “Joanne and I look forward to the Festival of Trees every year and continue to be in awe at the creativity of all the decorators as well as the time commitment of the volunteers. It is an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to gather with other members of the community to make a critical difference in our community’s health care programs and services provided by Kootenai Health.” Festival of Trees Scott and Jennifer Anderson Dan and Robin Wright, Ron McIntire, and Becky Boifeuillet Nicole Jacklin and Deb and Megan Mongeau 20
