Gail Edward Iverson Circle of Friends
The Gail Edward Iverson Circle of Friends was founded in 2008 in honor of Gail Iverson. Mr. Iverson raved about the care he received as a patient of the Skagit Valley Hospital Wound Healing Center. He greatly appreciated the compassion and commitment to healing that he experienced.
The Circle of Friends raises funds throughout the year to purchase new and improved equipment for the Wound Healing Center.
Since its inception in 2008, $143,139 has been raised to help purchase equipment for the Wound Healing Center at Skagit Valley Hospital and refurbish the center's lobby. The Circle of Friends hosts an annual event to raise funds.

1930s Bluegrass Picnic Fundraiser benefits SVH Wound Healing Center
The Gail Iverson Circle of Friends and the Skagit Valley Hospital Foundation send a heartfelt thank you to the guests, sponsors, auction and raffle donors who participated in the very successful 1930s Bluegrass Picnic fundraiser held at Rexville Fun Center on Pleasant Ridge in Mount Vernon on Aug. 2. The evening raised more than $20,000 to benefit the Wound Healing Center at Skagit Valley Hospital.
About 200 guests enjoyed a raffle, live auction and a “picnic-themed” buffet. The Happy Valley Sluggers provided musical entertainment and Mark White served as charity auctioneer.
On behalf of the Circle of Friends, the Foundation’s board of trustees, staff, hospital administration and Wound Healing Center staff, I thank the following event sponsors for contributing to the success of this special fundraiser: Skagit State Bank, Cornelia Devlin, Foothills Toyota-Scion, Gregg and Lea Davidson and Mark’s On Pine Square. We also appreciate the generosity of many Skagit County and Whidbey Island businesses and individuals who donated goods and services for the evening’s live auction and raffle.
President, Skagit Valley Hospital Foundation
