Smithtown, New York— Can you think of an activity that offers relaxation, nostalgia and fundraising? Well, Smithtown resident and 20-year volunteer at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center, Georgia Priebe, merged all three into a Spring Rock-A-Thon. The Rock-A-Thon is fundraiser where the participants are sponsored to rock in a rocking chair, located in the hospital lobby for 30 minute intervals. The event raised $3,010.00, which will help refurbish the family waiting rooms throughout the hospital. “We are happy to help the hospital raise funds to help refurbish the family waiting areas, because it will help ease the tension for those who have family members in the hospital,” stated Georgia.
