For over 50 years the Encore Shop has been operated by a volunteer group of women called the Silver Cross Advisory Board. In recent years, the Advisory Board donated more than $1 million to Silver Cross for the purchase of a variety of medical equipment. The group recently completed a $75,000 pledge to purchase the water feature in the Dralle Serenity Garden outside the new Silver Cross Hospital. Currently, the Advisory Board is working on $105,000 pledge to purchase new surgical equipment for the Hospital.
