It raises the money in several ways, including through The Attic, the Barton Auxiliary thrift store; the gift shop in the hospital lobby; and the annual Holiday Faire.

The auxiliary recently presented a check for $367,646 to John Williams, Barton Hospital CEO, to finish paying for the Phillips CT scanner that was purchased three years ago. The special scanner cost $1 million, and the auxiliary has contributed more than $350,000 each year to pay off the needed piece of equipment.
